"You're No Better Than Socialist Dems" - Rand Paul Slams COVID-Bill-Backing Republican

• Zero Hedge

Senator Rand Paul slammed Republicans Monday for voting in favour of a huge $900 billion coronavirus relief bill, saying that they are no better than the Democrats they routinely label as 'socialists'.

"To so-called conservatives who are quick to identify the socialism of Democrats: If you vote for this spending monstrosity, you are no better," Paul urged in a speech on the Senate floor:

The Democrat controlled House, as well as the Senate passed the legislation, also tacking on a $1.4 trillion spending bill, prompting Paul to criticise the move as the government giving away "free money".

"When you vote to pass out free money, you lose your soul and you abandon forever any semblance of moral or fiscal integrity," Paul urged.
