Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., a staunch deficit hawk, argues the best way to stimulate the economy is to “reopen” it.

In an interview on Wednesday with Sinclair Broadcasting's “America This Week,” Paul said more economic stimulus isn’t the answer to the economic fallout from the coronavirus crisis.

“It’s a mistake to think that government is what should stimulate the economy… the economy should be left alone,” he said.

“The only way to get a long lasting stimulus… is to reopen the economy,” he declared.

"We borrowed about $3 trillion in the spring and our debt is now over $27 trillion. So I don't think borrowing more money is the answer,” he said.

He also defended his believe there are advantages to herd immunity to the virus.

“Those who have had the disease naturally… they have the same immunity is if they had the vaccine… natural immunity,” he said, adding: “We should acknowledge some advantages… we shouldn’t discount immunity in the discussion.”
