BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) – U.S. Senator Rand Paul was in Bowling Green tonight to speak at the 2022 Fall Service Academy Information Fair. The fair allows prospective students to view various military high schools and investigating options for joining the service, a cause Paul says hits close to home.
“My brother-in-law went to the Air Force Academy, a nephew who flew for the Navy for 20 years, and my father-in-law was a draftee for 20 years in the Air Force. But it’s a great day for these kids. They’re 16, 17, 18 and considering a career in the military,” Paul said. “It’s also important for our country to nurture and select the best and the brightest to be the next generation of our leaders in our army.”
Paul also took the time to chat with WBKO about his thoughts on President Joe Biden’s debt cancellation plan.
“I think it’s wrong for the government to do things, even if they sound like, ‘Oh, why don’t we give everybody a free car?’, there has to be a law that says the government has the power to do that. That’s part of what I’ve talked to the students here about, the power to go to something that Congress has to vote on. Congress didn’t vote to allow people to not not have to pay their debts for student loans.
