The RESTRICT Act Gives Up Nearly All Notions of Checks and Balances

by US Senator Rand Paul (R-KY)

“Beginning in the 19th century, snake oil salesmen falsely claimed their elixirs and tonics could treat a wide array of ailments. In the 21st century, a group of senators are hawking a bill they assert can cure the oh-so-many maladies caused by using the social media app, TikTok. Just like snake oil salesmen of the past, these Senators may talk a good game, but their antidote is far worse than any purported affliction. … [The RESTRICT Act] bestows an astonishing amount of power to the Executive branch in a manner that the Chinese Communist Party would approve of.” (05/05/23)
