WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican Sen.-elect Rand Paul on Sunday said GOP lawmakers must be open to cutting military spending as Congress tries to reduce government spending.

Mr. Paul, the “tea party” favorite from Kentucky, said compromise with Democrats over where to cut spending must include the military as well as social programs. Mr. Paul said all government spending must be “on the table.”

Mr. Paul told ABC’s “This Week” that he supports a constitutional amendment calling for a balanced budget.
