The Democrats knew they didn’t have the votes to get a conviction in the Senate.
But they still wasted the last month on Trump’s second phony impeachment trial.
And Rand Paul just warned Chuck Schumer and the Democrats of another “big mistake” they’re about to make.
Before the Democrats wasted the last month on Trump’s second phony impeachment trial, Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul warned Chuck Schumer that his efforts were doomed to fail.
Rand Paul even proved his point by forcing a vote on dismissing the House’s article of impeachment on the grounds that it was unconstitutional for the Senate to hold a trial for a private citizen.
45 Republican Senators voted for Rand Paul’s amendment, proving Chuck Schumer didn’t have anywhere near the 67 votes needed to convict Trump.
But Chuck Schumer and the Democrats ignored Rand Paul and, in the end, they failed to convict Trump just as predicted.
Now Rand Paul has another warning for the Democrats, saying that their proposed $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package is “a big mistake.”
“At this point, we don’t know what is in it,” Paul said Wednesday during an interview with Fox Business Network’s Mornings with Maria.
“The rumors rumbling around is that every wish list, every sort of thing the Democrats want to put on the Christmas tree, is going to be in there. Some of it will have to do with COVID, but the bottom line is we don’t have $2 trillion sitting around here, so it’s all going to be borrowed,” continued Paul, before issuing a warning to the Democrats about the “big mistake” they were about to make should they ram through this massive spending bill.
However, Paul didn’t just offer criticism of the Democrat’s massive spending bill.
Paul then suggested the best way to “fix COVID” is by opening up the economy and allowing folks to get back to work.
“At this point, I think really, if you want to fix COVID, you open the economy. It’s on the decline. I think we are rounding the bend now. This is not the time to put the country further into debt,” declared Paul.
In closing, Rand Paul said he was planning to reintroduce the National Right to Work Act, which simply says that no American worker should be forced to pay dues to a labor union as a condition of employment.
“The National Right to Work Act stands up for all American workers by ensuring their ability to choose to refrain from joining or paying dues to a union as a condition for employment,” said Paul. “It respects their fundamental right to freedom of association, and it is time for the federal government to follow the lead of Kentucky and other states by passing Right to Work.”
