Rand Paul has been one of the most consistent champions of civil liberties in the Senate. He has also been a staunch opponent of Covid-19 lockdowns, vaccine mandates, and school closures that have destroyed our economy and stolen our freedoms.
In Senate hearings, he has never been afraid to confront Fauci, often aggressively and vocally, about the science behind the CDC’s recommendations for handling the virus.
His defiance was on display once again on Thursday as he grilled Dr. Fauci on whether it was necessary for children to receive boosters. The viral confrontation comes as the CDC approves the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines for infant children aged 0-5 years old.
Fauci, for his part, had to attend the hearing over Zoom after he caught Covid-19 earlier this week and is in quarantine.
Fauci is triple-vaccinated, makes a point of avoiding ‘large’ gatherings, and is frequently pictured in a mask when he emerges in public.

Rand Paul once again had a showdown with Dr. Anthony Fauci on Capitol Hill Thursday as the senator pushed the nation’s top immunologist on whether children are going to need 10 boosters against COVID-19.
Fauci, who joined the hearing virtually after announcing Wednesday he contracted COVID, said it was ‘absurd’ to say that children would need to continue getting vaccination boosters as long as they produce antibodies, which Paul says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is using as its reasoning for recommendation.
‘The government recommends everybody take a booster over age five,’ Paul saida as part of a Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee hearing on Thursday. ‘Are you aware of any studies that show reduction in hospitalization or death for children who take a booster?’
Dr. Fauci, 81, replied that there have not been such studies or data accumulated”
