Rand Paul: Won't Be 'Bribed or Bullied' to Support Healthcare Bill

Rand Paul: Won't Be 'Bribed or Bullied' to Support Healthcare Bill

By    |   Friday, 22 September 2017 10:13 AM

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., vowed he won’t be "bribed or bullied" into supporting the latest Republic healthcare plan.

Paul is the only GOP senator who has said he will vote against the bill, according to the website.  But Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and John McCain of Arizona all voted against the "skinny" Obamacare repeal bill in July.
