Rand Paul says can't support last ditch GOP ObamaCare repeal

Source: The Hill




BY RACHEL ROUBEIN - 09/15/17 10:15 AM EDT

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said he can’t support the newest ObamaCare repeal plan a quartet of senators is pushing, highlighting the hurdles the legislation would need to overcome to pass the upper chamber.

Paul called the legislation “Obamacare Lite.”




GOP Sens. Bill Cassidy (La.), Lindsey Graham (S.C.), Dean Heller (Nev.) and Ron Johnson (Wis.) released the legislation on Wednesday.
The bill would move money for ObamaCare's Medicaid expansion, tax credits and cost-sharing reduction subsidies to block grants to the states. It would also repeal the individual and employer mandates and the medical device tax.

On Friday morning, Cassidy told reporters that he was “pretty confident we’ll get there on the Republican side. We’re probably at 48-49 and talking to two or three more.”

6. Now that McCain is on board, why not? They're

throwing $$ at AZ and any/everywhere else needed.

They might well have it this time.

7. Rand Paul said earlier today that he wouldn't support it.

I imagine he, Collins and Murkowski will vote no and kill it with 49.

5. Come on Teabaggers, stand your ground!

This still allows $ for the poor people to get healthcare and that can't be allowed from everything you've said and done. Every penny has to be taken from their healthcare and given to the rich, no strings attached. You can't allow even one shred of kindness, it would spoil the reputation of your party. kind of

11. These guys are all from the states that will be hurt the worst

What is wrong with these guys?

I guess Rand Paul isn't trying to save the ACA, but at least he can see that this attempt (what is this, the 4th or 5th try?) isn't even worth voting on. That makes him slightly smarter than McConnell, by a little bit. Talk about FIDDLING WHILE ROME BURNS!
