Trump Attacks Rand Paul On Obamacare Repeal

Politico reports:

Libertarian-leaning Sen. Rand Paul is “such a negative force” on Republican efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare, President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter Wednesday morning amid a final GOP push to overhaul the nation’s healthcare system.

Senate Republicans have restarted in recent days their stalled efforts to undo former President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare legislation, throwing support behind a bill authored by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Bill Cassidy (R-La.) that would block grant money currently spent on Obamacare to the states.

Republicans have only until the end of September to pass the bill via a Senate procedure called reconciliation, which would allow the GOP to approve the legislation with as few as 50 votes instead of the usual 60.
