Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) sharply criticized central elements of the emerging Senate Republican healthcare bill on Thursday, indicating that he will vote against it unless dramatic changes are made.

Paul denounced as “new entitlements” two core elements of the Republican bill in both the House and Senate: a refundable tax credit to help people buy insurance and a “stabilization fund” of money to help bring down premiums.  

“I think we shouldn't have new entitlements that will go on forever in a Republican plan to fix healthcare,” Paul told a small group of reporters. “We can't pay for what we already have: Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.”

  1. He is likely the only senator in congress that has any respect for taxpayer money and an equal distain for debt. indyjonesouthere

    1. The "Reagan conservatives" (Neocons) like to call me a "libertarian" now for my foreign policy, privacy, and spending views.

      I'm glad Rand is up there. He's a nice balance on the system.

      And I'm no dang libertarian. I don't see how arbitrarily bombing foreigners and pumping the US full of immigrants is conserving anything. A conservative conserves, which suggests he's attached to something. That's the whole point.
