Sen. Rand Paul: Been told to ‘take it or leave it’ on Obamacare strategy

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., a member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, walks to a room on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, March 2, 2017, where he charges House Republicans are keeping their Obamacare repeal and replace legislation under lock and key and not available for public view. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)Sen. Rand Paul on Friday said conservatives are being told to “take it or leave it” when it comes to the emerging House GOP plan to repeal and replace Obamacare, setting up a major clash with leaders hoping to mark up legislation as soon as next week.

Republicans are trying to repeal and replace as much of the Affordable Care Act as they can under a fast-track budget process that allows them to avoid a Democratic filibuster.

Leaders have outlined a three-week timetable to get the legislation over to the Senate, where it must meet arcane budget rules and gather consensus among Republicans who hold a 52-seat majority.

Yet a trio of Senate conservatives — Mr. Paul of Kentucky, Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah — have objected to the House GOP approach, on top of centrists who are worried about unwinding Obamacare’s expansion of Medicaid for the poor or defunding Planned Parenthood over its abortion practice as part of the draft plan.

dont want a freaking replacement.....FREE MARKET

AMEN!

How come there wasn't this much push to see what was in obamacare BEFORE it was passed?

OH NO............THEN it was "we have to pass it to see what's in it"

Image result for we have to pass it to see what's in it

Well guess what---- that was done........and what did we find???

1) It was only going to work for a few years then collapse. And it currently is collapsing.

2) That: IF YOU LIKE YOUR DOCTOR YOU CAN KEEP YOUR DOCTOR???

NO , ACTUALLY YOUR---S. O. L. on that part of the beginning Obama's 8 year lie FEST.

3) Small businesses......can't afford to pay Obama care wages and obamacare together for their workers, so they get reduce staff, Lay offs people and reduce Hours to stay in line with Obama Care rules, great---THANKS OBAMA. So this prevents people from working at almost every small business in the country....NOBODY CAN LIVE ON SUCH MINIMUM WAGES AND PAY THEIR BILLS AND LIVE THE AMERICAN DREAM.

4) The poverty level has climbed with more and more people on food stamps and welfare. 94 M are out of work or near poverty because Obama and the progressive democrats have IGNORED THE WORKING CLASS PEOPLE OF AMERICA.....OBAMA DID AWAY WITH THEIR JOBS and gave them OBAMA CARE YIPPPIE!

5) Obama care pays for Abortions----I DON'T CARE IF ITS DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY IT DOES.

THERE ARE PROBABLY A THOUSAND MORE REASONS TO APPEAL IT BUT I JUST DON"T HAVE THE TIME TO WRITE IT!

JUST GIVE US SOMETHING THAT WORKS SO THESE DEMOCRATS SHUT UP! PUT OBAMA IN PRISON FOR TREASON.

PROGRESSIVES GIVE ME AND THE REST OF AMERICA A HEADACHE AND THEIR IDEAS ARE WORTHLESS. PELOSI WITH HER FINGER UP IN THE IMAGE, LOOKS LIKE A MUSLIM CLARIC.

;' /  muslim cleric eh??   To me most of her pics look like she's casting spells, fitting for the wicked witch of the west.

Crazy whacko Nancy Pillosi!!!  DON'T FORGET:

Good one Marilyn

The House plan to repeal and replace Obamacare is as far as I know still in the draft stage, and for Senator  Rand Paul (R-KY) to be talking about it is both unsightly and unnessary  for it is not a Senate problem yet.

Senator Paul would do our country a better job of being a senator that helps to fix the problem instead of being the problem but them again when did anyone in congress ever care for The United States and We The People.  

Rand Paul is setting himself up for a run to be President in 2020.   

what's so hard about drafting;

The Affordable Care Act and all it's derivatives is hereby repealed.   ?

there, it's been drafted-- now giterdone !

ALERT ALERT

BREAKING: Hillary Admits She Was Wrong About ‘Deplorables,’
White Nationalists Only ‘0.15%’ Of U.S. Population

(TeaParty.org) – Hillary Clinton, the failed liberal presidential candidate who sealed her fate by slamming half of U.S. voters as a load of racist, sexist, xenophobic “deplorables,” just came out and admitted she was wrong, Breitbart reports.

Speaking with Hugh Hewitt on his radio show about her book “What Happened,” he asked her if she actually believes that half of the American population are white nationalists and racists.

“Of the 62.9 million people who voted for President Trump, do you have a number in your mind that you think are actually white nationalist racists of that 62.9 million, a real number?” he asked.

“No, I don’t,” she said.

Still have any doubts? Later in the conversation, Hewitt asked the same question again. “Do you think there are more than a half million, you know, honest-to-God white nationalists running around the United States?”

Clinton: “Probably not, no.”

A white nationalist would like to establish a sovereign country for people of white European heritage, an idea everyone across the political spectrum finds unspeakably intolerable and offensive. Now, the woman who declared that this was the desire of more than half of Americans is saying that virtually nobody wants it. On both counts, she’s completely wrong.

There’s no doubt that Clinton is probably going to try running again for president in 2020 – if she’s even alive that long – and might be trying to absolve her guilt and pander to all those “undecideds” who instantly went MAGA the second she blasted them as no-good racist deplorables for not voting Democrat.

However, Clinton did later admit that there were more white nationalists in America than she had thought. Expressing her worries that the internet and the presidency of Trump is giving them a voice and a platform, she hinted that under her iron scepter, she will attempt to silence them.

“Unfortunately, their views, which used to be quite beyond the mainstream, you know, have a much broader audience now, because you know, of being online and having outlets and media presence that can promote those attitudes,” she said.

How many white nationalists are there in the United States? That’s a question with troublingly few answers, since for some mysterious reason the liberal mainstream media – even though it claims all the time that white supremacy is on the rise – hasn’t actually bothered to take polls and just ask people whether they are white nationalists.

Actually, there’s a simple answer to that. If such a poll were to be taken, our bet is that liberals would be very disappointed to discover that almost nobody is actually a white nationalist, and so there would be no way they could continue scaring people with those fears. A tactic Clinton has apparently given up on.

Left-wingers are entirely convinced that some vague but large majority of people who say they aren’t racists or white nationalists, actually share a lot of views with them – which is why Nazi and white supremacist have become interchangeable with Republican and libertarian.

An article by Newsweek, which polled around 5,000 in order address this very question, came up with this response:

About 70 percent of respondents strongly agreed that people of different races should be “free to live wherever they choose” and that “all races are equal,” and 89 percent agreed that all races should be treated equally. At the same time, 31 percent of respondents said they strongly or somewhat agreed that the country needs to “protect and preserve its White European heritage,” while 34 percent strongly or somewhat disagreed and 29 percent said they neither agreed nor disagreed.

Reality is, it’s a little true that some Americans do have overlapping views with white nationalists, but the overwhelming majority of respondents STRONGLY believe that the races should be free, are equal, and should be treated equally. Sounds like none of these respondents would be joining a lynch mob or waging a second Holocaust any time soon – trying to equate the preservation of white heritage with support for slavery and genocide is obviously one of the Left’s biggest lies, and the very reason why 39 percent of people in this same survey believe white people are under attack.

So Clinton changes her mind, and now says she believes less than one percent of the American population are white nationalists – did she believe there were even LESS than that during the campaign trail? Either way, she’s either just lying or plain stupid.
