Kentucky Senator Rand Paul Calls Out the GOP for Making National Debt go Through the Roof

On July 21, 2020, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul attacked his Republic colleagues for taking advantage of the Wuhan virus pandemic to boost wasteful spending.

Following a lunch meeting where the federal stimulus package was discussed, Paul took the Senate GOP to task for recommending an increase in the national debt.

He called his colleagues “Bernie bros” in comments to reporters.

“This is insane, they are ruining the country,” Paul said about the “fiscally irresponsible” spending initiatives put forward by GOP representatives, according to a report from the Washington Times. The Kentucky senator then vented his frustration on Twitter, where he lambasted Republicans for proposing stimulus funds in education.

“Just came from Progressive Democrat, whoops, I’m mean Republican caucus: They’re going to spend $105b more on education, more than we spend every year on the Dept of Education. Anyone remember when Reagan conservatives were for eliminating the Federal Dept. of Education?” Paul wrote.

“The majority of Republicans are now no different than socialist Democrats when it comes to debt,” he added. “They simply don’t care about debt and are preparing to add at least another trillion dollars in debt this month, combined with the trillions from earlier this summer.”

Paul also tweeted, “Another genius idea heard from both caucuses today: too many schools closed this fall so we have to send more federal aid for day care.”

 

He concluded, “I really need to double check which caucus meeting I went to today.”

 

Although a case can be made for the government to step in and provide some compensation to people who have had their lives unjustly ruined by irresponsible local and state officials, the Kentucky Senator is correct to raise questions about unnecessary spending tacked on to these relief packages. Above all, spending that is directed to a bureaucracy that historically promotes leftist and degenerate causes.
