Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) made a big statement walking out of a meeting with Speaker Paul Ryan on Obamacare.
The disagreement occurred over the possibility of keeping the Medicaid expansion and creating new tax credits. Paul believes that this would create a “new entitlement program.”
Speaker Ryan assured Senate Republicans on Tuesday that the Obamacare repeal is underway. However, Paul considers the Medicaid exception to be unacceptable.
Paul said: “I hear things that are unacceptable to me. If they don’t seem to care what conservatives think about complete repeal of Obamacare, they’re going to be shocked when they count the votes.”
Senator Paul and The Freedom Caucus announced in 2015 their support of a complete repeal of Obamacare, including the Medicaid expansion and the employer and individual mandate.
According to Paul “This legislation is the conservative solution to replacing Obamacare, and it will enable millions more to acquire affordable insurance through the free market.
