Howard University student: "Good afternoon, Senator. My name is Keenan Glover, I'm an administration of justice major from Rochester, New York. A freshman, as well. You say you want to provide a government that leaves us alone. Quite frankly, I don't want that. I want a government that is going to help me. I want a government that is going to help me fund my college education. I want a government that won't define me by my FAFSA or by my family's income. I'm a dollar sign with a heartbeat in this nation. This society is a mirror image of Capitol Hill. Do you, Senator Rand Paul, have a solution to come up with new American values so that the citizens of this nation have a worth of more than dead presidents and Ben Franklin?"
