Kentucky Senator Rand Paul took to the Senate floor Monday for an important speech against massive government spending and 5600 page government funding/COVID-19 response bill, a speech that needs to be heard.
Paul condemned Congress’ fiscal recklessness on the U.S. Senate floor and called for opening the economy so Americans can rebuild their livelihoods.
“We are $27 trillion in debt today. How do we expect a child to have the economic opportunity when this crushing debt is their inheritance from Congress?” asked Dr. Paul.
“We are borrowing and worsening this debt crisis, in part, because too many governors and mayors have imposed heavy handed restrictions that crush business,” he later observed.
“The need for help is real. I hear it every day from Kentuckians and across the country. But it’s clear that government has worsened the economic damage and acted as the biggest obstacle to economic recovery,” said Dr. Paul. “The answer is not printing up and distributing ‘free money.’ It’s opening the economy,” he later added.
Paul was one of six US Senators to vote against the massive $900 billion COVID-19 pandemic relief package.
