Government Should ‘Do No Harm’: Rand Paul Responds To Obama’s State Of The Union

In a response to President Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday night, Sen. Rand Paul called on the U.S. government to follow the instructions he received in medical school. “As a physician, I was taught, ‘First, do no harm,’ to think before you act, to analyze the unintended consequences of your actions,” Paul said. “I think Americans would be better off if all of our politicians took the same approach: First, do no harm.” Paul pointed out that unemployment among African-Americans is twice that among whites. He also used the video as a platform to float bills and amendments he intends to introduce, including a constitutional amendment that would make balancing the budget mandatory.
