Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) tore into his fellow Republicans on Fox News for considering a coronavirus relief package that could cost more than $1 trillion.
Said Paul: “I am very upset with my colleagues. They went 8 years. They should apologize now to President Obama for complaining he was spending and borrowing too much. He was a piker compared to their borrowing and what they’re doing now.”
Axios: “Paul’s comments, while tongue-in-cheek, underscore the divisions within the Senate Republican conference, where as many as 20 GOP senators are likely to vote against any coronavirus relief bill — even if a deal is reached between Democrats and Trump administration.”
