He chastised Congress for passing bills that he said exempt its members, while they often fail to read the text of many bills before they are signed into law.
“This must end. I say no bill should ever pass that has not been read,” Paul said. “I have a proposal. Make them wait one day for every 20 pages.”
Paul led a group of past and future Republican presidential candidates speaking at the event on Friday – including New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Reps. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), and former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) – that according to organizers brought more than 1,000 evangelical Christian leaders to the nation’s capital.
“What America needs is not just another politician with more promises. What America needs is a revival,” he said.
Paul also emphasized his position on abortion, proclaiming that the “war against the unborn must end.”
“I believe that no nation, no civilization, can long endure that doesn’t respect life from those that are not yet born to life’s last breath,” he said. “I will stand up for unborn children as long as I’m privileged to be in office.”
