It turns out that Senator Rand Paul may just be a hero to the GOP when it comes to ObamaCare. This is because the senator is one of the few who truly want to repeal ObamaCare. And that’s a goal most people in the GOP have in common.

According to The Hill, Rand Paul made an interesting statement on Sunday. The senator said he does not believe Mitch McConnell has enough votes to be able to pass the Senate GOP’s healthcare bill.

As many know, this is a dire issue, since Republicans won elections because of their promises to repeal ObamaCare. And, unfortunately, Rand Paul looks as though he is one of the few who truly are wanting that to happen.

According to The Hill:

“But this bill keeps most of the ObamaCare taxes, keeps most of the regulations, keeps most of the subsidies,” [Paul Rand] said. “And creates something that Republicans have never been for, and that’s a giant insurance bailout superfund.”

Paul then again floated the idea of first repealing and later replacing ObamaCare. There is significant resistance to that idea among other senators, including Republicans, although the White House has indicated President Trump is open to it.

“What I’ve suggested to the president … if this comes to an impasse, I think if the president jumps into the fray and says ‘Look guys, you promised to repeal it, let’s just repeal what we can agree to,'” Paul said.

“And then we can continue to try to fix, replace or whatever has to happen afterwards,” he continued.

Republicans should try to repeal as many of the taxes, regulations and mandates as possible, Paul said.

Some politicians wonder if it would be better to simply keep ObamaCare. After this GOP healthcare debacle, some see leaving the plan alone as a better alternative to passing the current GOP healthcare legislation.

However, Paul’s adamant reply was that the current ObamaCare system is “terrible.” He was also clear that ObamaCare is spiraling out of control, and is unwinding the entire healthcare system with it.

However, despite this, Rand was also adamant that the current GOP healthcare legislation will not fix these problems.

The Senate will put its consideration of the healthcare situation on pause while Senator John McCain recovers from surgery. It is likely consideration will resume once McCain is well.
