Rand Paul still searching for Obamacare replacement bill

Posted March 04, 2017

The report claims Pauls' actions Thursday were seen by some unnamed folks as "an escalation of his opposition to the [Republican] party's healthcare plans".

Paul kept up his campaign over Twitter on Friday, posting a picture of himself pointing quizzically at a closed door with the message, "We are continuing our search for the Obamacare Lite bill!"

If they hold together in the Senate, where Republicans have just 52 seats, the three senators alone could sink a Republican bill.

"There is a lot of political 'inside baseball" going when it comes to passing legislation through the House and Congress and it can give headaches to first year members of the new Congress as well as the old bulls that have been reelected for generations. "I am a part of the legislature".

"We're on a treasure hunt, I guess", said Rep. Jan Schakowsky, a Democrat from IL.

Take it to the bank, GOP leaders are all but declaring: The House will vote to repeal and replace by the end of this month. This is like a game of Clue, only it's democracy being murdered with a monkey wrench by Mitch McConnell and Co.in the billiard room. Lawmakers have said the goal is for the two House committees to vote next week in hopes of pushing the legislation through the House and to the Senate before an early April recess.

Coming into 2017, Paul has a new vigor and confidence.

In addition, far fewer Americans would have been able to find low-priced marketplace coverage this year if the Affordable Care Act's premium tax credits were based on inflation rather than cost of coverage, according to an Obama administration analysis obtained by McClatchy.

Once Sen. Paul heard the news, he made it his mission to find the bill. Cory Booker (D. -N.J.), aware of the difference between making a point on principle and just being a jerk.

Six lawmakers have come out stating that they will not support any form of Obamacare legislation that does not repeal as much of Obamacare as previous legislation did, stating that the language of a 2015 bill passed by both chambers should be "the bare minimum".

"I said I liked to get a copy and they said, 'No go.' She wouldn't tell us anything really", Paul said. I think that's why it's top secret. "You will have to pay a fine to the insurance company". They say its tax credits are too similar to Obamacare's subsidies, which are also refundable tax credits but are based on an individual's income and the cost of coverage in their area.

Members of the GOP who weren't wild about the idea of keeping the bill secret from people were barred from seeing it as well. Other Democrats, as well as Senator Paul are Twitting as their search for the bill continues.

"I said, 'Well, I'm looking to read the bill, is this where I read the bill?'" Tonko said. It's under lock and key, and we're not allowed to have a copy of it. "Do you want to go to Rayburn?" You will get it.

"I am heading to the secure location where they are keeping the House obamacare bill, Paul tweeted Thursday morning".
