(LibertySociety.com) – On December 20, the press reported lawmakers had agreed on a new stimulus package. The details of the legislation aren’t clear yet, but one senator wants to make sure poorly-run states aren’t getting any money.
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is one of the most fiscally conservative members of Congress. On Friday, December 18, he objected to another stimulus package, saying he doesn’t think the government should be “passing out any money” to states that refuse to lift restrictions and fully reopen their economies. The senator said it would be like “rewarding” bad behavior.
It’s GREAT to be with @charliekirk11 @mattgaetz @kimguilfoyle @DonaldJTrumpJr @DonHuffines @TuckerCarlson @LaurenAna_ at @TPUSA #SAS2020! It is time to safely reopen America! Time to spread LIBERTY from coast to coast!

Liberal states like California and New York have still not fully reopened their economies. Recently, both states reinstated draconian lockdown policies, putting Americans out of work, and hurting businesses. Why should those governors receive aid for a problem they’re creating?
