Rand Paul is saying Republicans don’t have the votes to pass the disastrous Obamacare amendment. And in saying such, he’s sticking with his constant call for a full repeal followed by a stand alone replacement.
That much we should all already know. None of us should be surprised by Rand Paul’s position. He’s one of the few (very few) Republicans actually sticking to his campaign promises. He’s one of the few actually standing by the very voters who put the GOP in power.
But the part of this discussion that’s concerning involves President Trump. You see, multiple media sources are saying the Trump White House may be open to supporting a full repeal followed by a GOP replacement.
“Open” to it? What do they mean “open” to it? This is what Trump campaigned on. This is what he promised us. He promised a full repeal on day one in office, in fact. Why is it even possible that he’s not open to it? Why is this not something Trump is hammering on day in and day out?
We should all be extremely concerned here. The fact that Rand Paul is now basically the ONLY Republican in Washington openly calling for a full repeal is just bizarre. This after hundreds of politicians ran on a pledge to fully repeal Obamacare.
And the best we can get from the Trump White House is that they may be open to supporting a full repeal?
Wow. My how times have changed.
Where are the champions of small government? Where are the champions of free markets? Where are the champions of fiscal responsibility?
Inquiring minds want to know.
