Sen. Rand Paul is making the headlines and his “innocent” comments are nothing but lies laced with arsenic. Paul is one of four GOP Senators that publicly opposed the Senate healthcare bill that aimed to simultaneously repeal and replace Obamacare.
In the wake of the massive failure on Monday night both Mitch McConnell and Trump came out publicly saying they backed the idea of a full, clean repeal of Obamacare and worry about the replacement later. They did in fact pass that bill back in 2015, but President Obama vetoed the bill only to have Trump sign it. We love reading Breitbart News and seeing the ridiculousness that comes out of them. Rand Paul interviewed with Breitbart and this is what he had to say on the subject:
“I’m encouraged that we’re moving towards a clean repeal,” Paul told Breitbart News. “I’ve been advocating for some time that an insurance company bailout is not what we should be voting on. So now we’ve gotten rid of the insurance company bailout and we’re going to vote on what we voted on in 2015. It’s a partial repeal, I wish we were voting on full repeal, but this is a compromise I’m willing to make and that is to vote on a partial repeal. It won’t fix everything, but it’s the very least they ought to do. Any senator who voted for this in 2015, if they’re not willing to vote for it they need to explain to the voters at home why they’re not for full repeal.”
Women Turn Their Backs on Repeal
Paul and the rest of his GOP buddies can’t get their stories right. Right now, Paul Ryan is against the repeal and replace later despite calls to get him to change his mind. Paul Ryan’s approval rating has plummeted off a cliff after he failed to help Trump’s agenda. Now we have three more GOP senators opposing the original 2015 bill, Sens. Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lisa Murkowski of Arkansas. How funny it’s all women! Capito and Murkowski both previously voted for the 2015 bill so them now against the bill is a bit suspicious.
If women are now going against this bill, what does this have in store for the rest of America’s females? Repealing Obamacare is a personal attack on women across America who rely on the ACA to help them with overall women’s health. Without the ACA millions of women will not have access to free birth control and other services such as routine gynecological exams and breast exams. Paul also called for Capito and Murkowski to explain themselves why they will no longer back the bill the previously voted for. Maybe it’s because they saw the light of what it would do to millions of women and realized it was inhumane and they don’t want other angry women after them. We’re scary when we’re angry.
