Rand Paul: Repeal Obamacare In Full

Sen. Rand Paul called out Congress for going back on its promise to repeal Obamacare, and said he cannot support a bill that keeps Affordable Care Act spending in place during a Wednesday interview on “Fox and Friends.”

“I wish we would just repeal it,” Paul said. “There’s probably no bigger opponent of Obamacare than myself. As a physician I’ve seen Obamacare up close and personal. It’s a terrible system. But we promised to repeal it. We didn’t go to Tea Party rallies and shout, I didn’t hear anybody chanting ‘hey guys let’s keep Obamacare and let’s divvy it up to the states and mess with the formula so we take some money from the Democrats and give to Republicans.’ We said we’d repeal it. We didn’t say we’d keep it and block grant it.”

Paul said he spoke with President Donald Trump, and was convinced that the White House would legalize the sale of health insurance across state lines.

“He [Trump] assures me that he is going to legalize the sale of across state insurance through associations. Which means any individual, millions of individuals in our country will be able to buy insurance through a group. Get cheaper prices, and get a better product,” he said. “Obamacare is going to get worse. We will get other chance but we should also do some things that are good for the country, and good for health care immediately.”

I agree with Senator Paul just repeal the damn thing in full and get it over with, if necessary make a separate deal with the Democrats to keep the medicaid money coming for a while, but what ever it takes just get it done. Republicans promised to repeal it and it's time to live up to their promise. The problem is everybody is scared to death of their constituents, they are afraid they might have to actually be honest and admit that Obamacare doesn't work and never will. For the free loaders just tell them that in order to get socialized medicine Obamacare has to be repealed first,they're so stupid they'll believe anything.
