Rand Paul Shock – Sides With Bernie on Healthcare at Senate Hearing
The Kentucky senator is so committed to ‘conservative principles’ that he would prefer a government takeover of health insurance to moderate fixes.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said at a Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee hearing on Thursday that he agrees with Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) plan for a government takeover of health care more than moderate GOP proposals to repeal and replace Obamacare.
Paul complained that GOP subsidies did not fix the problems facing the Affordable Care Act.
“[Insurance companies] will be back for more,” he warned.
During the fight to repeal Obamacare this year, Paul switched his position on health care issues several times, finding a new reason to oppose every new GOP effort.
