Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is speaking at the National Urban League Conference in Cincinnati, Ohio today on the subject of civil rights. The Mayor of Baltimore (and secretary of the Democratic National Committee), Stephanie Rawlings-Blake published an op-ed today to counter his speech with the title: "Blacks shouldn't be fooled by Rand Paul." She criticizes his position on civil rights and economic issues, claiming that his policies would harm the African-American community. Is Senator Paul trying to fool blacks with his message of personal liberty and economic freedom?
Rawlings-Blake's key points in her column were aimed at the following issues: The 1964 Civil Rights Act, the minimum wage, Obamacare, voter ID laws, Paul's proposed economic freedom zones, and equal pay for women. In this episode of the Freedom Report podcast, we break down each issue and see if the Baltimore mayor's accusations stand up to scrutiny.
