Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) appeared on Glenn Beck’s radio program Wednesday to discusscolleague Ted Cruz’s 21-hour speech on the Senate floor about the perils of Obamacare, addressing, among other things, reports that some in the Republican Party were actually working to undermine the effort.
“I think the caucus is unified against Obamacare,” Paul said. “I think there are some differences on how we best should do it, and I think they are honest differences, to tell you the truth…I think it is a little bit unfair, on some of the criticism. For example, you know, Senator Barrasso, the M.D., has fought Obamacare like nobody else, puts out information every week on it, has always voted to defund it. It’s a little unfair, really, to say that if he’s unwilling to filibuster a bill that he actually agrees with that he’s opposed to Obamacare — and so I think that really some of the tactics aren’t necessarily fair, and I think that our caucus is unified.”
