Senator Rand Paul Objects To Latest Obamacare Repeal Bill

It looks like there is another attempt to repeal Obamacare, without really repealing it.

What’s the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over repeatedly, expecting a different outcome? Well then, it’s possibly safe to say congress is stark raving mad.

Rand Paul is raising the red flags about this.

Independent Journal Review:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) erupted on Twitter Tuesday, slamming Republicans’ latest efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare in a series of tweets that called the bill “not federalism.”

“Is keeping 90% of Obamacare taxes and spending then block granting it federalism? I think not!” Paul wrote. The Kentucky senator remains one of the few GOP lawmakers blocking the party’s last-gasp Obamacare repeal effort.

Paul has remained steadfast in his stance that the current bill that Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Bill Cassidy (R-La.) are pushing doesn’t represent a clean enough repeal of the Affordable Health Care Act.

As with previous bills, Paul labels this bill as Obamacare lite:

CNN added these comments from the senator:

“What we think is being hidden from conservatives is there’s a lot of ‘Obamacare Lite’ in their bill,” the Kentucky Republican said on CNN’s “New Day” Friday. “There’s a new entitlement program. … There is also a Cadillac tax or something similar to the Cadillac tax that was in Obamacare. And there’s also an individual mandate, believe it or not. Instead of paying the mandate to the government, they’re going to tell you you have to pay the mandate, by law, to an insurance company.”

If Rand Paul has anything to say about repeal and replace, the third time is not the charm.
