Rand Paul Won't Support Latest GOP Obamacare Repeal Plan

By    |   Friday, 15 September 2017 12:15 PM

Republican Sen. Rand Paul said Friday that he cannot back the most recent plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act, describing it as "Obamacare Lite."

Sens. Bill Cassidy, R-La., Dean Heller, R-Nev., Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Lindsey Graham, R-SC., sponsored the new bill to repeal Obamacare on Wednesday. Their bill would grant states money in block grants to construct their own insurance systems.

"I am pretty confident we’ll get there on the Republican side,” Cassidy told reporters Friday, according to The Hill. “We're probably at 48-49 [votes] and talking to two or three more."

President Donald Trump addressed the bill in a statement earlier this week.

"I applaud the Senate for continuing to work toward a solution to relieve the disastrous Obamacare burden on the American people. My administration has consistently worked to enact legislation that repeals and replaces Obamacare and that can pass the Senate and make it to my desk," he said. "As I have continued to say, inaction is not an option, and I sincerely hope that Sens. Graham and Cassidy have found a way to address the Obamacare crisis."
