Today on ABC’s “This Week,” Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) said he will consider voting for a partial repeal of ObamaCare.
Paul: “I’ve been telling leadership for months now that I will vote for a repeal, and it doesn’t have to be a 100 percent repeal. For example, I’m for 100 percent repeal, that’s what I want, but if you offer me a 90 percent repeal, I’d probably vote for it. I might vote for 80 percent repeal.”
Paul claims that “ObamaCare subsidies in this bill are actually greater under the Republican bill than they are under the current ObamaCare law…That is not anywhere close to repeal.”
Paul has opposed recently proposed legislation that attempts to repeal and replace Obamacare, calling the bill “ObamaCare Lite.”
Currently, Paul’s stance remains at a no. However, if there is “more repeal and less big government programs,” he might change his vote.
I’ll consider a partial repeal.
Paul says a partial repeal “means more freedom. It means they have to legalize the sale of inexpensive insurance.”
