What’s Stewart going to ask him? We think a couple of questions are dead locks. First, Stewart’s mentioned several times Paul’s contention that a border fence with Mexico might be used to keep Americans in, as well as illegal immigrants out. Don’t be surprised if Stewart tries to figure out what the heck Paul means by that. We can hear it already: “So congressman, you’re saying that US workers might flee south for jobs in the booming Latin American lawn care sector?”
Second, health care’s likely to come up. That’s because during the CNN/Tea Party GOP debate on Sept. 12, Wolf Blitzer asked Paul whether a critically ill young person without health insurance should just go untreated, and several audience members shouted out “yes.” Paul’s own response seemed to emphasize charities, but he didn’t really complete the thought. Maybe Stewart will ask him to explain.
