To hear Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., tell it, Democrats and Republicans are still missing the big picture when it comes to the country's fiscal situation. "I think both sides haven't woken up to the enormity of the problem," Paul told the NewsHour's Gwen Ifill in a one-on-one interview Tuesday on Capitol Hill. Paul's comments come a day after President Obama rolled out his $3.7 trillion budget for next year. It projects a $1.65 trillion deficit for this year and drops to $1.1 trillion next year. Paul said the country simply can't sustain that much red ink. "He's going to spend $46 trillion over 10 years -- just the mind-boggling nature of that number. But, it's also going to double the amount of debt." Be sure to tune in to Tuesday's NewsHour broadcast to see Gwen's full conversation with Senator Paul.
