Rand Paul just took a huge stand for abolishing Obamacare and for supporting President Trump.
As we are all aware, the time has finally arrived for Republicans to support Trump and keep their six year promise to repeal and replace Obamacare.
However, they’re disagreeing on so much, they’re making little headway. Unlike Trump they can’t keep their promises as easy – but thankfully, we still have good men in Washington, and that’s Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.).
Sen Paul looked at many of the ideas the Republicans were producing, but he wasn’t having any of it! According to Politico,:
“Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) left before it was over, having heard enough of a conversation that he says centers around keeping Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion intact and creating tax credits that he called a “new entitlement program,” though a Republican in the room rebutted the notion that the topic of Medicaid expansion came up in the Tuesday meeting with Ryan.”
“I hear things that are unacceptable to me,” Paul said in an interview afterward. “If they don’t seem to care what conservatives think about complete repeal of Obamacare, they’re going to be shocked when they count the votes.”
We support Sen. Paul – he’s been on the front line working on a repeal plan for Obamacare, requesting Republicans blow it up and replace it now!
And guess what? Trump has seen the plan he is proposing and agrees with Paul’s plan!
Paul has been vocally adamant about his resistance to any Republican budgets that increase the debt and expand entitlements, as he demonstrated by giving a 20 minute presentation on the senate floor when Republicans submitted their “vehicle for repealing Obamacare” budget that would add $10 trillion to the debt.
With things staying the same despite the changes in power, it’s little surprise that Paul was willing to leave.
Thank you Sen. Paul!
