‘We’ve Got to Do Something About the TSA': Sen. Rand Paul Pushes Airport Security Privatization

[Originally published on Human Events]

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said there is “great bipartisan support” for his bill to privatize airport security across the country as he discussed the legislation at a roundtable event with about two dozen small business owners, policy experts and others in the Capitol Visitor’s Center Wednesday afternoon.

Paul drew headlines when he was detained by a Transportation Security Administration agent at the airport in Nashville, Tenn. in January. News spread quickly after the senator’s father, Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) tweeted that his son was being “detained by the TSA for refusing a full body pat-down.”

Sen. Paul said his own experience resonated with his colleagues in Congress on both sides of the aisle. “To a person, every Democrat said hello to me” after the incident, he said. “They said, ‘We’ve got to do something about the TSA.’”
