Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and his wife Kelley thanked his followers for their concern as he continues to recover from from several broken ribs, and said he's ready to fight for tax cuts when the Senate returns next week.
“Thanks for your concern, your prayers, your thoughts, all the get well cards,” Paul said in the video. “It’s been a rough couple weeks but I’m starting to get better. I’ve been in D.C. for a week. We’re trying to make the tax cut a tax cut for everyone. We’re working really hard on that. And we’re looking forward to time with family and Thanksgiving.”
“Grateful for your prayers, your well wishes, and your concern. Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!” Kelley Paul added.
This month, Paul's anesthesiologist neighbor allegedly tackled Paul as he was mowing the lawn. Reports indicated the altercation was due to a dispute over leaves and lawn clippings along their shared property line, although some think the real reason for the fight is still a mystery. The neighbor has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor assault.
Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., also shared a video on Twitter describing various Thanksgiving traditions in his family, his favorite Thanksgiving foods, and his disdain for jellied cranberry sauce.
“I hate that cranberry stuff. It comes in a can," Ryan said. "You can see the rings of the can in it. My mom loves it — I’m just not a big fan of cranberry.”
Former President Obama also shared an image of his family for the holiday.
“From the Obama family to yours, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving full of joy and gratitude,” Obama tweeted.
