Rand Paul Reveals His Oppostion to Virus Funding Bill
Article from The Daily Caller by Henry Rogers.
Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Tuesday explained why he will vote against the next coronavirus funding bill, citing the massive debt Congress is creating.
“I understand the hardships of senators returning from around the country, so i have not invoked the senate rules to demand a recorded vote. I did return today, though, so that history will record that not everyone gave in to the massive debt Congress is creating,” Paul said in a speech on the Senate floor.
“The one thing that will get our economy going again: reopening! We can’t continue printing bailout money. It’s not a lack of money that plagues us. It’s lack of commerce. Until we reopen our economy, job losses will continue,” Paul tweeted.
“I believe there exists too much danger for nearly half-a-trillion-dollar spending bills being passed without Congress being in session. A handful of individuals in leadership shouldn’t have this much power. All of Congress should weigh in. They should return at once,” Paul said in another tweet.
