-- back to handy there are new developments regarding the violence on the streets of Cairo at least 51 people were killed and 435.
Were injured during clashes outside the Republican guard building earlier today.
They're conflicting reports and how the violence began.
But the Muslim Brotherhood supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi saying they came under attack by the Egyptian military however.
The military claims they were fired upon first.
According to Reuters the Muslim Brotherhood has called for more protests on Tuesday.
And earlier today the Obama administration address the ongoing bloodshed saying that is not taking sides at this time and Press Secretary Jay Carney also addressed.
The growing calls for the US to stop sending foreign aid to Egypt watch.
President Obama made clear our deep concern about the decision.
Made by the Egyptian Armed Forces to remove president -- from power and suspend the constitution.
It is also important to acknowledge that tens of millions of egyptians.
Have legitimate grievances with president more -- on them undemocratic form of government governance.
And they do not believe that this was a true.
Indeed they were demanding a new government I think it would not be in the best interest of the United States.
Our assistance programs to -- -- reaction to the crisis in Cairo and more Kentucky senator Rand Paul sanitation joining -- and let's start this out right away.
What is this stay cool in Cairo in Egypt.
Oh absolutely when the military takes over and they depose.
An elected government that's a definition of a military to.
The interesting thing is though Mubarak a year or two ago was toppled also black to.
We have a law on the books -- says you don't give foreign aid to military coups were they topple unelected leader and give -- a military junta.
And yet we continue to do it and we think so now we're going to influence these people.
But continued to throw money out of I think it's a real mistake so so -- why -- above administration call Politico.
You know I think they're confused on this day they like so many supporters of foreign -- think that that's how we buy friendship around the world that's how we influence people.
But you know the interesting thing is there was a Gallup poll in Egypt last year and 70% of egyptians don't want our money.
So they burn our flag -- tell -- our money and we say oh here you must take it we want you to behave and act like Americans but.
There isn't a whole lot of real democracy going on -- them.
Senator -- maybe this has something to do that section 508 of the for an assistant ask assistance act stipulates that.
Quote none of the funds appropriated otherwise made available pursuant to dissect will be obligated or extended to finance -- any assistance -- country whose duly elected check.
Head of government deposed is deposed by military tour decree.
Check also maybe they just don't want to be put into that box.
Yet nothing is as you hear the president's response and he says oh we have a democratically elected government acting -- democratically and we'll democracy is where people vote -- majority wins we have something different our country we have a democratic republic.
Where the majority gets to decide policy within the constraints of the constitution.
That's a real problem over it and they'll -- be any constraints of the -- rule of the mom and that's why you have chaos going on Egypt.
Because I don't think they have the same sort of history of a constitution that we have in our country senate would be different if this happened in another country.
Well you know the thing is if you wonder in our country it's a military took over and we.
Let's say we -- -- a Democrat president.
And we put a Republican and that's essentially what tapping in Egypt would anybody not call that a military -- in the united states of that happened.
You had happened in Germany would go on a military to.
I think so well they seem to think there's a different standard for the Third World or the developing world.
And I think that's a mistake I think -- you know we shouldn't be sending money.
We have a lot of problems in our country we don't need to be sending money to people who are burn our flag and people who hate America.
They don't hate -- any alas they just look at us with derision when we do it I think it it -- -- meeting the definition of military -- Senator a couple of months ago Senator John McCain he disagreed with where you are now he seems to be -- with you now but let's take a listen what he said in January.
One of the major stabilizing forces in Egypt today.
If god forbid the current unrest worsens.
And -- tips deeper into civil conflict.
The one force in that country country that might be capable.
Of pulling -- back from the abyss.
Is Egyptian military.
-- just sent out word I've got the amendment proposed by the senator from Kentucky.
We would not only be harming the effectiveness of the Egyptian military.
Which by the way is not objected to by the Israelis who probably understand.
Better than anyone.
What defense capabilities might be -- someday to threaten their security.
-- so back then keep the -- coming now he's agreeing with you.
Yeah well the bottom line is we don't have the money we have to borrow the money from China descended to Egypt.
The other point is is that what you're seeing over there -- you're seeing this mass -- of people.
Who don't want to be dictated to by anyone he's not elected to the military finally got rid of Mubarak because they were unhappy was.
And military rule -- Mubarak.
Now they're unhappy with sort of the same Islamic kind of rule for the Muslim Brotherhood but I think instituting another -- elected government.
His forestalled by the military.
American taxpayers shouldn't be forced to support that.
Right senator -- about leadership very quickly -- a lot of time for a move on secretary of state John Kerry.
-- said to be hiding during this military -- going on and then two days later while the bloodshed was happening in Cairo.
President -- hit the links at the golf course your thoughts.
We not ask us secretary -- directly about this and I -- I asked him should foreign aid be dependent on behavior.
And he said -- and if you're not gonna make -- dependent on behavior what kind of leverage you have -- these countries if they think were sap.
And we're gonna continue to give them money no matter what they do they're just gonna laugh at us as they cash their check.
That's why disagree with the the President Obama and secretary -- That really if you're gonna give money at all which probably not a good idea but if you're gonna give it.
It should be dependent on behavior at the very least all right senator one quick question on hitting you before we let you go obamacare the delay to 2015.
For the employer mandate your thoughts.
I'm for a permanent delay and a permanent delay would -- it real well at the American people.
I'm afraid it's gonna cost us a fortune individually.
I have no idea what my insurance is gonna cost I think it's going to be a real problem.
I think we're gonna lose jobs and the people they intended to help.
The people who -- pour and struggling and don't have insurance.
I think what -- -- have after this is they may not have a job that senator one quick question them before they go Governor Perry from Texas announcing he will not seek reelection as governor.
May be looking towards when he sixteen do you want to welcome him to be -- are you announcing your fall here.
Well I don't know about what I've decided yet but if Governor Perry decides to run for president I think there's three good reasons he could be president.
You know Texas is a big successful state he's a long term governor.
-- lucky I can't remember in the third good.
I guess are well done well though it's a -- -- and Paul thank you very high tonight.
