(UnitedVoice.com) – If Joe Biden is sworn into office on January 20, 2021, many Americans are worried he might shut the country down. COVID-19 cases are spiking across the country, adding to the fear Biden will take extreme measures. But Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is promising to help prevent that.
On Sunday, November 15, Paul spoke to New York’s WABC-AM 770 about the virus and the possible Biden administration. The senator vowed to “do everything” he can to prevent the Democrat from “locking us up and locking us down.” He went on to say “lockdowns don’t work,” and Biden will “ruin the country” if he wins the presidential election. He also took issue with mask mandates, saying he’d stop people from being forced to wear them forever.
So @JoeBiden wants to lock us down and force everyone to mask up. Doesn’t anyone care to know if mask mandates help? The data on mask mandates actually shows an INCREASED rate of COVID cases after the mandates.

Biden, himself, has not announced a plan to lock the country down. He said he will take other steps to slow the virus down. However, Dr. Michael Osterholm, a member of the Biden advisory team, has said the country might need to lockdown for six to eight weeks. Measures like that could kill American businesses and destroy the economy.
