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.

I agree with Senator Paul 100%. No more stimulus money.
I have to agree with Sen. Rand on this.
Have to agree with Senator Paul. The stimulus money will provide a little instant gratification, but that’s it. Tomorrow when its spent nothing will have changed other than that huge new TV and the size of the national debt.
As time goes by we are all beginning to recognize that what Rush Limbaugh said is 100% true. This hyped corona virus scare was just a tool to devastate our economy. It is just another tool to shut down our country and destroy our economy. The corona virus was just another routine annual flu bug and nothing more.
I agree with the Senator there are questions that must be explained to the voters, where is this money coming from, how will it be paid back and what this means to the next generation putting this country in so much debt when we are already in a deficit?
He’s the best! This outrageous debt, no matter what it is/was created for, leaves US vulnerable to pennies on the dollar, buy-out, or forceful take-over, and it will be used to increase taxation on We The People, in the meantime.
I wanna thank Honorable Senator Paul.
The earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
Yes, I agree
Senator Rand Paul; I think is time to step in and continue to do what your father did not finish. Step in for the president. I supported Trump -he promised Peace but he he did not do it or he does not have the guts. Rebuild our country , rein in military spending
Stop the spending- reopen our businesses.
I believe the dems want this to continue until the election to beat up on Trump and hide the fact their candidate is in some type of walking coma !!
