Rand Paul Wants Cheap Insurance, not GOPcare

Instead of a law that props up insurance companies, Rand Paul wants to make healthcare great again.

Rand Paul wants Congress to stop their present “reform” of Obamacare because it is a law designed to make money for insurance companies rather that drive down prices for consumers. He has pointed out what gets evaded in almost every aspect of the welfare state: that “helping” people often really ends up helping a group of people who get to administer that “help.”

The Hill reports, “Rand Paul: Insurance should be available for $1 a day.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) slammed Senate Republicans’ healthcare overhaul bill on Friday, saying that it’s grounded in “propping up” insurance companies.

He also called for the creation of a healthcare law that would reduce insurance costs to as little as $1 a day for at least some consumers.

“What I’d like to do is legalize inexpensive insurance, and you should be able to get insurance for $1 a day. I mean, you really should,” Paul said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “The insurance companies make all the money; all of this is predicated upon still propping up the insurance companies.”

He describes the Senate bill as a bail out for the insurance companies.
