Sen. Paul living up to billing as tea party leader

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul is
scheduled to be the star attraction at a tea party tax protest in
his hometown of Bowling Green.
The protest rally is scheduled for late Friday afternoon.
Since taking office in January, Paul has staked out a role in
the national spotlight as a leading tea party advocate in Congress.
The eye surgeon, son of Republican U.S. Rep. Ron Paul of Texas,
has proposed slashing $500 billion in federal spending. He's also
co-sponsoring legislation to revamp Social Security and has
proposed constitutional amendments to require a balanced federal
budget and limit the number of terms for members of Congress.
