U.S. Senator Rand Paul visits Bowling Green, addresses tariffs and more

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – U.S. Senator Rand Paul visited the Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce this morning.

He addressed questions posed by local business leaders about the issues facing the nation during a roundtable discussion.

The first was healthcare and Medicaid, where he suggested the healthcare model be modified.

Senator Paul also touched on social security, saying he supports a bill that raises the age of availability to 70 over a 20-year period.

He also warned that if the middle class wants free college, paid leave and so on they’ll pay for it heavily in taxes.

Senator Paul also expressed his support for President Trump and discussed the findings of the Robert Muller report.

One issue the Senator does not agree with the president on is tariffs.

He says farmers and automotive industry leaders should be concerned if a deal can’t be reached with Mexico.

The President is threatening a 5% tax on all Mexican goods.

Senator Paul also talked about immigration and the concerns with border control.

According to Paul, the U.S. is releasing immigrants on a daily basis.
