Sen. Rand Paul to Newsmax: Inflation ‘Canceled Out’ All That Free Pandemic Money


Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. news max A bad news reality for the American people: All the free money you got during the pandemic is now being overwhelmed by inflation, ultimately costing you more than your government gave you.

“What we can be sure of is that right now we are losing more to inflation than they are giving us in the form of free money,” Paul told Wednesday’s “Main newsWith Jenn Pellegrino. “Inflation comes from free checks handed out.” They shut down the economy. They send everyone a free check. They said, ‘Oh, this will make up for it.

“But guess what? When people add up their gas bills at the grocery store, all the free money is offset. And I don’t think inflation is going to end anytime soon.”

Paul told Pellegrino that the spending spree of the pandemic will still drive up inflation, as trillions in appropriations remain unspent.

“There are still about $2 trillion in the coffers of city, county and state governments,” Paul continued. “It hasn’t been consumed and put into the economy because it’s chasing commodities. It’s going to chase higher commodity prices. We’re going to get more inflation, so it’s not over yet.”

Paul blasted Democrats on inflation and COVID-19 pandemic measures and spending, noting that they have been causing damage.

“The pandemic has been their excuse to increase government, increase debt and increase government spending, so we’ve spent trillions of dollars and without that excuse they’d never get through,” Paul said. “They have all sorts of orders on our actions that they would never be able to pass without the pandemic, and their fear is that if the pandemic is officially over, they will not be able to continue to rule our impulsive authoritarianism.

“Look, student loan forgiveness, they’re doing it because of the pandemic. If someone has to tell Uncle Joe because of the pandemic, he can’t break the law anymore and forgive payments to certain kids. So the thing is, do they need this pandemic Ill, because that’s an excuse for their tendency to want to have big government, so I don’t think that’s why they can never give up on it.”

Paul also went on to rebuke Dr. Anthony Fauci for years as the chief medical expert on the pandemic.

“Staying at home didn’t save their lives,” Paul said of the children being denied school. “Staying at home ruined their lives. In Sweden, not a single child was at home. Schools remained open. They didn’t wear masks, and no children died in Sweden. Zero!

“How many teachers are sick? The ratio is about the same for every other profession in Sweden. So everything Dr Fauci preaches is pseudoscience, his own elitist slur. But it’s not about science, and the sooner we get out of this People, the better we will be, and the better the health of the country will be.”
