GOP Sen. Rand Paul states he will lead the charge against mandated masks on planes and file legislation to repeal the mandates, giving people their facial freedom back while traveling in the air.
Rand Paul stated, specifically: “When the Senate returns to session, I will be introducing an immediate repeal of the mask mandate on planes. Enough! Time to stop this farce and let people travel in peace!”
Looks like someone is going after the airlines and many of us have a lot of questions about these masks, lately.

It was a very simple tweet, to the point, notifying his 3.2 million followers of what he plans to do once Senate returns to sessions.
Many have criticized the airlines for making people social distance while standing in line to get groped by the TSA, but then sitting close to each other on the plane as if they were best friends.
Why do people need to be 3-6 feet apart in a line in an airport that is likely full of air, but then literally sitting next to each other on a plane? How does that make any sense.
And if someone is vaccinated, then why do they need to wear a mask at all? What was the point in getting vaccinated if someone must still wear a mask?
Either way, Rand Paul is going after the airline industry to get the mask mandates repealed and here’s what his comments turned into:
Why do we social distance in line to get groped by the TSA, but then sit next to each other anyway? Kinda makes no sense.

Would you also introduce an immediate repeal of masks in any schools? Many blue states are failing their kids and caving to unions who for whatever reason want to continue masking our children. We need help.

Thank you!! I’m a flight attendant and it is awful wearing a mask all day!

We take off half our clothes at TSA for the safety of our community. Same deal with masks – it’s for everyone’s safety. And really, don’t be a big baby- it’s not a big deal to wear a mask. Children have been wearing them for a year without whining.

As a flight attendant I haven’t wanted to wear a mask. The majority of passengers, crew, gate agents, and ground agents don’t want to wear masks. Be mask neutral. Individuals should decide for themselves whether to wear a mask or not.
