Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., slammed House Republicans’ healthcare bill in an interview with Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Thursday, vowing the measure would be “dead on arrival” in the Senate.
“It keeps the ObamaCare taxes for a year,” Paul told host Ed Henry. “Then [it] keeps the Cadillac tax forever; [it] keeps the ObamaCare subsidies, but renames them tax credits; [it] keeps the individual mandate, but you don’t pay the government the penalty, you’ve got to pay the insurance company … That’s the very definition of ObamaCare Lite.”
Paul, a licensed opthamologist, touted his own health care plan, which he said was based on ideas sketched out by current Health and Human Services secretary Tom Price.
