Restoring Liberty Editor’s note: Rand Paul is calling out the RINO hypocrites (about 95% of the GOP) for refusing to actually support repeal of Obamacare. He points out that the despicable GOP bill contains many of the exact same Obamacare provisions that Republicans have always screamed about (during their election cycles, of course).
What Senator Paul is pointing out is something that most of us are already aware of: the GOP does not represent our interests. They, along with the Democrats, represent the interests of their Establishment handlers (aka, “the elites”).
Do you think this is why the American political experiment may be entering its twilight? If 80% of Republicans were elected on a platform of repealing Obamacare, but virtually none of them actually work to do so, doesn’t that justify a lack of confidence in our elected leaders?
Sen. Rand Paul has not been quiet about his displeasure with the Republican healthcare bill as it was written, saying many times that he can’t vote for it unless it looks more like an actual repeal of Obamacare.
Paul has derided Republicans for dropping the essence of their previous “repeal and replace” mantra for another big government approach, which promises an infusion of more federal money into the healthcare system.
Now that Paul has voiced support for separating the repeal effort from the replace effort into two different bills, he has distinguished himself even further from the rest of his caucus as one of the few remaining small government, pro-liberty Republicans.
Commenting on the current bill, he said, “We have nearly $200 billion in insurance bailouts. Does anybody remember us complaining that Obamacare had insurance bailouts?” (Read more from “Rand Paul Is Going to War With His Own Party” HERE)
