Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” while discussing the Republican health care bill, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said he would vote for a partial repeal of Obamacare, but the current bill was “not anywhere close to repeal.”

Paul said, “I’ve been telling leadership for months now that I will vote for a repeal and it doesn’t have to be a 100 percent repeal. For example, I’m for 100 percent repeal, that’s what I want, but if you offer me a 90 percent repeal, I’d probably vote for it. I might vote for 80 percent repeal.”

He added, “Realize that the “Obamacare subsidies in this bill are actually greater under the Republican bill than they are under the current Obamacare law. That is not anywhere close to repeal.”

    I think Rand Paul is trying to make a name for himself for future election. Obamacare does need to be repealed. It’s how it’s done that matters.

      Obama care DOES need to be repealed. It is a MANDATORY program in which everyone must be covered for every possible procedure/Rx, including sex reassignment surgery and follow-up hormone and psych counseling, AIDS treatment, 3rd world orphan diseases and abortion. Most of the above are incredibly expensive for the Insurance companies to cover, there’s no allowance for rejecting any pre-existing condition and so, SOMEBODY has to pay for it, whether or not you use any of these exotic procedures/therapies/Rx. Those who DO need the aforementioned (excepting abortion) often cannot work, and therefore pay nothing under the Medicaid program. That’s why my monthly premiums went from $540/month with no deductible to $975/month with a $6,000 deductible. Not having the cash to pay out, when I had my heart attack I had to refuse the ambulance, and simply go home and hope for the best.

        It’s a mess for sure. I don’t want my tax dollars going for a sex change either. That is ridiculous. That’s an elective surgery.

    I am beginning to think Rand Paul is one of the few congressmen with a brain.
