Rand Paul Says Ryancare Is A Bailout For The Insurance Industry

Source: Face the Nation

Ryancare – doesn’t exactly repeal the individual mandate outright. Instead, Ryancare forces individuals to pay a 30% increase directly to the insurance companies if their coverage lapses. Rand Paul is diametrically opposed to this corporate welfare and has labeled the new individual mandate as a bailout for the insurance industry.

So, let's get this straight.... The Insurance Co. backstops that would have strengthened the ACA, that were left unfunded by Marco Rubio and the GOP Reps, to weaken the ACA and Obama's attempt to cover every American, are now planted firmly inside Trumpcare or Ryancare? ( As much as I detest him daily) Good on Rand Paul to call them out on their hypocrisy.

1. Your link goes to a right-libertarian website.

Yes, libertarians are the stopped clocks that tell the
right time twice a day, but right wing sources are
generally not allowed.

Can you find a link from the mainstream media?

2. You should delete this post...right wing link.

And Paul Ryan is a tool...there is nothing good in that stinking bill.

3. Gorram,

I wish they'd call it what it is -- TrumpCare.

4. you missed my point

He said this on "Face the Nation". I do not like Rand Paul or his political views. I was simply demonstrating the hypocrisy that is buried within the Ryancare/ DonTCare legislation and that one of their own was exposing it. Mandates, Rate corridors, backstops, things that worked under #43's Medicare Part D law are all of a sudden thrown out and defunded under the ACA but reappear in Ryan's AHCA.

5. All Republicans care about is the 3 or 4 huge Insurance Corporations. Not Americans, not Doctors,

not medical professionals, not hospitals, not loss of thousands & thousands of medical jobs.

All Republicans care about are the 3 or 4 huge, "for profit" Insurance Corporations. "for profit" corporations who by the way, have stock that does great ALL the time.

6. Don't forget the Big Pharma kickbacks, and of course ....

huge tax cuts for the one-percenters!

Because they're the only Americans that really matter.

7. good points! Republicans back all "for profits" rather than Americans best interest.

They're supposed to be working for us, 'the people' ALL the people.

Instead Republican party are carpetbaggers, colluded with foreign governments against Democracy, used car salesmen- trying to sell us a hunk of junk!.
