Senator Rand Paul said on Thursday that the time has come to end forced mask-wearing on U.S. airlines.
Paul said that he is set to introduce a bill that would end Joe Biden’s mandate for masks.
Paul tweeted on Thursday that he will introduce an “immediate repeal of the mask mandate on planes” when the Senate returns next week, and said, “let people travel in peace!”
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!

Paul has been against mass mask wearing and has been the object of leftist attacks.
The Sen. said that he will not be taking any coronavirus vaccines because he has already gotten the virus and has a natural immunity. Therefore, he doesn’t need the vaccine.
A group of five senators have also sent a letter to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) asking if the agency has any updated regulations for passengers who have been fully vaccinated.
Biden signed an executive order as soon as he came to office to force air passengers to wear masks in airports and on planes.
