Rand Paul: Republican Health Care Bill ‘Keeps the Fundamental Flaw of Obamacare’

Written by  Susan Jones

(CNSNews.com) – The more time conservatives have to consider the Republican health care bill, the less they will like it, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said on Sunday.

He spoke after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced that the Senate will delay a vote on the bill, until Sen.

John McCain recovers from surgery to remove a blood clot above his left eye. McConnell needs McCain’s “yes” vote if the bill is to have any chance of passing.

Sen. Paul said he’s a firm “no.”

I think the longer the bill is out there, the more conservative Republicans are going to discover that it's not repeal, and the more that everybody is going to discover that it keeps the fundamental flaw of Obamacare.

It keeps the insurance mandates that cause the prices to rise, which chase young, healthy people out of the marketplace, and leads to what people call adverse selection, where you have a sicker and sicker insurance pool, and the premiums keep rising through the roof.

And one of the amazing things to me is, for all the complaints of Republicans about Obamacare, we keep that fundamental flaw. And the reason you know Republicans acknowledge this is, they make a giant insurance fund to subsidize those prices.
