On Tuesday, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. told Newsmax that the narrative of voter suppression by Republican Party elected officials spread by the Left and the media is "a pack of lies," pointing out that the Black population votes at about the same rate as the White population.

"But it's not really about that," Paul stressed on "Spicer & Co." "They're lying. They're lying to the public and saying this is about racial disparity when in reality, it's about trying to set the system up where they can game it through mail-in voting by embedding people into the electoral system that will basically try to get out certain people to vote and exclude other people from voting."

"So really, this is about gamesmanship and has nothing to do with anything noble or lofty, like voting rights. But it's amazing that they can try to play a game like this and expect people to buy into it."

Paul, a certified doctor in ophthalmology, implied that the Biden Administration's change of tune on supporting in-person schooling was too little, too late.

"Even if you look back to ... the very first COVID virus that we had ... it turns out that it's not very deadly for children. Sweden has kept their schools [sic] open the entire time. They don't wear masks, and what they found is that no children died. Not one [child] in the whole country of Sweden — 1.8 million kids. Not one child died," Paul stated.

He also said that there was "no science" to having children wear masks.

"Here's the truth of the matter," Paul spoke. "When we've studied the sort of mask mandates, there's no evidence that they lower the incidents. When we study having schools where some kids were masked, and some don't, there's no difference in the incidents."

The comments come as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., vows that the Senate will forge ahead on voting rights legislation and will vote on changing the rules of the upper chamber by Jan. 17 if the GOP once again blocks the bill.

"We must adapt. The Senate must evolve, like it has many times before," Schumer wrote in a Dear Colleague letter Monday morning. This message is his strongest to date suggesting that changes to the legislative filibuster are necessary.

"As former Senator Robert Byrd famously said, 'Senate Rules' must be changed to reflect changed circumstances,'" he said. "Put more plainly by Senator Byrd, 'Congress is not obliged to be bound by the dead hand of the past.'"
