    Tested despite no symptoms and no known contacts with infected persons, just days after voting against making testing more accessible for Americans. Meanwhile symptomatic people and medical professionals nationwide still struggle to get tested.

    Sen Paul is a physician. This is significant.

    He's going to have to pull himself up by his own bootstraps.
    Maybe John Galt will lead him to "The Gulch" and throw him in.

    Anything above that is pure socialism and an attack on our "kons-tit-tewshunul freedumbs".

    Since he appears not to be especially sick I'm sure he'll be fine. Of bigger import is the sheer freaking irony of the guy who joined in the hoax choir catching it himself. That would be worth a chuckle if the overall situation weren't so grim.

    The missus is ex healthcare. She reminds that Paul has some respiratory issues from the run-in with his neighbor a few years ago.

    Its also of importance that half of congress are elderly. He could have given it to others.

    I think this is the first positive thing that Senator Paul has contributed....

    He's 57, I think, in relatively good health and has excellent health coverage (thank you, taxpayers). As a Doctor (Opthalmology), he should know how to take care of himself. Besides, he is basically an asshole, and we know only the good die young.

    Paul is part of the 3-month delay by the gop.
