Ron Paul's economic plan targets TSA

• thehill.com

Rep. Ron Paul's plan to "restore America" includes abolishing the Transportation Security Administration.

Paul, a Republican presidential candidate and a lawmaker from Texas, is a longtime critic of TSA who has suggested eliminating the airport security agency before. His new economic plan would get rid of TSA as well as five Cabinet-level agencies, which Paul says will save the U.S. government $1 trillion.

Instead of having a TSA, Paul's campaign said he was in favor of "returning responsibility for security to private property owners."

In a recent GOP debate, Paul said airlines could protect flights better than a "federal bureaucracy." He also accused the agency of humiliating women, molesting children and abusing disabled people in a radio address this summer. "If the perpetrators were a gang of criminals, their headquarters would be raided by SWAT teams and armed federal agents," Paul said on a July edition of his weekly "Texas Straight Talk" audio address.
