Going for the Big One

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) on Tuesday said he is meeting with President Donald Trump to discuss Senate Republicans’ bill to repeal and replace Obamacare. Paul is a holdout on the proposal, which has seen defections from hardline and moderate conservatives.

Paul said that at the meeting, which is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, he plans to give Trump suggestions he has previously “tried to tell Senate leaders with no result so far.”


After the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office on Monday released its analysis of the proposal, which it estimated would push 22 million people off health care coverage by 2026, Paul described the bill in even harsher terms.

“It’s a terrible bill,” he said.


“The President is going to have to tell leadership they’re going to have to negotiate with some of us who don’t see this bill as being good for the country,” he said.

And he just might do it, but as soon as one of them says something different, that's what he'll be repeating.

 ...but hey, do what you want...you will anyway.
