Rand Paul Wars Against His Own Party? [VIDEO]

Written by Joe Scudder

Ironically, given his foreign policy, Rand Paul wars against the GOP over healthcare.

Rand Paul wars against the Republicans in Congress, but I don’t think he is hostile to Donald Trump. While Trump is no free-market purist, he appealed to conservatives and libertarians to be part of his voting bloc. The problem isn’t Trump so much as mainstream Republicans in Congress who are turning into welfare pimps. They pretended to support repeal when Obama was there to veto it.

So, now Rand Paul wars against the Republican Party, standing almost alone.

The Washinton Examiner posted an editorial: “Rand Paul is going to war with his own party.

Senator Rand Paul has not been quiet about his displeasure with the Republican healthcare bill as it was written, saying many times that he can’t vote for it unless it looks more like an actual repeal of Obamacare.

Paul has derided Republicans for dropping the essence of their previous “repeal and replace” mantra for another big government approach, which promises an infusion of more federal money into the healthcare system.

Now that Paul has voiced support for separating the repeal effort from the replace effort into two different bills, he has distinguished himself even further from the rest of his caucus as one of the few remaining small government, pro-liberty Republicans.
