Rand Paul is parroting the same out-of-touch “free stuff” rhetoric championed by Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, and Mitt Romney.
Paul callously invoked heroin addiction to imply that the American people are in danger of developing a crippling dependence on “what is free”:
If someone offers you something for free, treat it as if they’re offering you heroin and think about the repercussions of what is free and what is a drug, an addicting drug like heroin and the ramifications of that. There’s nothing free.
Rubio and Bush are no doubt thrilled to have Paul on their side.
