Senator Rand Paul is saying that he would consider a partial repeal of Obamacare. I guess Trump care is so bad, the Republicans are starting to be willing to compromise.
“If we get to an impasse, if we go to a bill that is more repeal and less big government programs, yes I’ll consider partial repeal.”
He also added that the current bill is nowhere close to a repeal.
Rand Paul also said:
“I’ve been telling leadership for months now that I will vote for a repeal, and it doesn’t have to be a 100 percent repeal.”
“For example, I’m for 100 percent repeal, that’s what I want, but if you offer me a 90 percent repeal, I’d probably vote for it. I might vote for 80 percent repeal.”
“ObamaCare[sic] subsidies in this bill are actually greater under the Republican bill than they are under the current ObamaCare[sic] law.”
He also said they would have to legalize the sale of inexpensive insurance for him to vote for a partial repeal. You know what would be better? Not repealing it at all.
Rand Paul is not the only one concerned about the Senate health care bill. Republican Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine) said that she has “serious concerns” about the bill as it currently stands. House Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pushing for a bill before the Independence Day Holiday at the end of the week.

Another Republican Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin said:
“We don’t have enough information. I don’t have the feedback from constituencies who will not have had enough time to view the Senate bill. We should not be voting on this next week.”
The weird part is that Rand Paul doesn’t think that the American Health Care Act (AHCA) isn’t enough of a repeal, even though it is.
