In an interview today on The Peter Schiff Show, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said he didn’t understand why congressmen would be purged from their committees for simply supporting balanced budgets.

Earlier this week, Reps. Justin Amash, David Schweikert, and Time Huelskamp were removed from their congressional committees by party brass. Reps. Boehner, Cantor, and McCarthy — who control committee assignments — were reportedly upset at the congressmen for not voting in sufficient lockstep with Republican leadership.

Having “shown their true colors,” Sen. Paul said, “If any of these people want to run for president, maybe they’ll have to explain why they wanted to purge people from their committees who wanted to balance the budget.”
