Republican U.S. Senator Rand Paul is conceding that President Obama emerged victorious from his budget battle with House Republicans, which was resolved late Wednesday following a two-week partial shutdown of the federal government. The Kentucky lawmaker made the comment Thursday in Daviess County during a health care forum at Owensboro Medical Health System Hospital.

He says the President held firm and was able to secure funding for the Affordable Care Act in the temporary spending bill approved in both chambers…

...And Paul says that debt is getting worse every day. Paul voted against the budget deal which his Republican colleague Mitch McConnell helped broker with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
