The country has been in a state of partial lockdown for over ten months now.

Business owners in multiple states are struggling to stay afloat as political leaders institute more COVID rules.

Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky says enough. It’s time to reopen the American economy.

Rand Paul: Best Economic Stimulus Is to ‘Reopen’ Economy

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., a staunch deficit hawk, argues the best way to stimulate the economy is to “reopen” it.

In an interview on Wednesday with Sinclair Broadcasting’s “America This Week,” Paul said more economic stimulus isn’t the answer to the economic fallout from the coronavirus crisis.

“It’s a mistake to think that government is what should stimulate the economy… the economy should be left alone,” he said.

“The only way to get a long lasting stimulus… is to reopen the economy,” he declared.

“We borrowed about $3 trillion in the spring and our debt is now over $27 trillion. So I don’t think borrowing more money is the answer,” he said.

Paul has been making similar points on Twitter:

People have the information they need to protect themselves from the virus.

It’s time to treat the American people like adults and let them make their own decisions.

It’s time to reopen the country.
