Senator Rand Paul rose up in rebellion against his own party Tuesday, objecting to the idea of helping people with their bills with a pittance of a payment to help with the pain of a pandemic they didn’t cause. “If free money was the answer… if money really did grow on trees, why not give more free money?” Rand mused. “Why not give it out all the time? Why stop at $600 a person? Why not $1,000? Why not $2,000?” “Maybe these new Free-Money Republicans should join the Everybody-Gets-A-Guaranteed-Income Caucus?” he snarked. “Why not $20,000 a year for everybody, why not $30,000? If we can print out money with impunity, why not do it?”
