Rand Paul: '85 Percent Of Government Is Being Funded'

For lack of funding, the federal government has shut down "non-essential" services, but in fact, much of the government is still being funded, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said.

"But one of the under-reported stories here is 85 percent of government is being funded," Paul told Fox News's Sean Hannity on Tuesday. "Two thirds of the government is Social Security, Medicare -- all of that is going on. And then we agreed yesterday, Harry Reid did come forward when we asked him to, and he finally agreed to pay the soldiers. So now we're up to that, 85 percent of the government."
