  • revolutionary insurrection incomming.

    you people just opened up a can of mass extinction folks.

  • RAND PAUL FOR PRESIDENT!!!!!

  • There's not inexpensive insurance!! Congress man Paul will collude with big health insurance & pharmaceutical companies they own him…

  • If republicans voters don't have health they die ( LOL ) they cant vote republican aymore if voters are dead,I know dead republicans will still vote woohoo!
    killing it's voters, its a dead party in the making.

  • What's on top of his head?

  • How about just eliminate the insurance companies. Math and common sense will tell you cost would come down automatically. If that dont, then you know we are getting fucked in the ass.

  • Unfortunately the democrats just want poor people to pay penalties because they can't afford Obamacare , why did democrats vote not to lower the costs of drugs?

  • Why is the government responsible for our healthcare? Not their business. Free market . Let people choose doctors they like and trust.? Quality of service will be diminished ..

  • What i am curious about is why the government wants to get involved in health care in the first place (must be some angle to make a bunch of money off us)?? Well Obamacare definitely was (because of the fines).

  • rand paul is blood sucking basterd

  • M B

    Stupid rand Paul he wants to repeal. Fuck him and fuck idiot Ted Cruz and fuck trump and his cabinet parties.

  • They'll vote yes you can bet on that!!! The 'pro life' party! Yeah right!! Republicons are pathetic liars!!!

  • Funny he actually admits his own ideas are bullshit on the issue. "In 20 years, insurance premiums have never gone done". Welp sir Obamacare has only been around a few years and was created because insurance was out of control.

    Also, he's pro predatory healthcare here–not any form of real capitalism he jests about. Insurance markets are sophisticated products with sophisticated buyers (business) and limited competition. Our courts need to step up and contract law needs to start eating these bad deals and putting insurance creators on the hook for what will be all sorts of bad ideas and bad risk.

  • "The government shouldn't tell you what you want for insurance."    Probably not.  But your very same "government" shouldn't tell you how much tax you should pay.  It shouldn't be able to spend your tax dollars on a bloated military, on invading other countries and interfering anywhere it likes.  It shouldn't be able to allow Wall St bankers to crash your economy without any penalty.
    America is the only country in the world that does not have a decent healthcare system for its citizens.  It sure as hell looks after its wealthy, its bankers, and its corporations though.
    And now it's cozying up to Islamic terrorist supporters like Saudi Arabia and Qatar.  What a shithole.

  • I have to say this was a real eye-opening interview with Rand Paul. Thank God we have him in our senate. Everything he is saying makes sense, and I have never heard of any of this hidden BS until this interview. After listening to Rand Paul, I now don't support this bill, and I lean republican when it comes to health care, but not for this crap. It appears to me that we don't have two parties – we only have one party. That would be democrats which are also comprised of democrat light (i.e., republicans). President Trump can only do so much. It's too bad Americans waited this long and let our government get this corrupt. It's really the fault of every American. Are you sick and tired of our government — well then – take a good look in the mirror.

  • lying – lying lying

  • A huge part of Health Insurance in the United States is being missed available for Millions of Americans. Employers provide Health Insurance for their Employees…A lot of workers have two available Health Insurances for both husband and wife most only use one.  and in my case I am single and have two available Insurance companies that cover me I only use one. In both cases we have relatives that do not have health insurance why don't the Government and Companies allow workers to cover a family member say a Brother or Sister or Aunt etc. and the Government give the Company a Tax Break based on the numbers. It seems to me Insurance Companies , Employers and the Feds could figure something out as an addition to whatever else they come up with.

  • I want the free Congress healthplan.

    premiums will never go down. cheaper premiums mean less coverage and higher deductible and out of pocket cost. increase cost for older and sick. you get what you pay for. TIME FOR MEDICARE FOR EVERYONE!!!

  • I like Rand Paul's father, Ron, much better! Rand is a very smart guy, but he's losing credibility with me!

  • The only people who will benefit from Republican "care" is young healthy people, that is, until they get old , which happens to us all.

  • We need to vote out all the Rep.'s that won't help Trump   make America great again !

  • I see every day how at least local municipalities take care of public areas … I definitely don't want them involved with healthcare on any level

  • I hope he sticks to his guns… He makes more sense than any other Congressman I've heard talking about this…

  • That's true, under Ocare mandates we couldn't buy inexpensive insurance, it was illegal. Repeal Ocare/expand health savings accts/keep the one decent clause allowing for pre-existing conditions. So far Medicaid isn't affected until 2020 & that applies to new enrollees.

  • You're a bunch of rich-loving money whores. Pass this bill, let the fight begin. Peace, bitches.

  • Stay strong Rand Paul! DO NOT CAVE.

    This new health care bill is a farce, and after 8 years of screaming about repealing it, Republicans are trying to rename it and take ownership… I just dont get it. Did they just start writing this crap a couple months ago? No one made any plans at all in that time they were opposing it???

    Fully repeal this garbage.

    Allow insurance companies to operate across state lines.

    Appropriate subsidies to PATIENTS, who have pre-existing conditions and are the most needy NOT INSURANCE COMPANIES.

    That will take care of the whole "Republicans want people to die" shtick. I thought Republicans were the free market economy party? If not, then who is? Where do I go with these beliefs? Sigh.

  • This is the man who should be in the white house…

  • 0:59 The bailout exists in state funds so it is not necisarily a flaw

  • Rand Paul = the only Robert Taft republican left.

    He knows his future candidacy depends on distancing himself from this train wreck (Iraq war).

  • RAND YOU HAVE THE POOREST HEALTH CARE ON RECORD HOPE PRE EXISTING CONDITIONS STAY AROUND BUT I DOUGHT IT HATE VOTING HAS CONQUENCES😁😁😁

  • THE GOP DID 9/11

  • WHO IS WORSE ? RAND PAUL OR ABC NEWS ?? IT'S A TRICK QUESTION ….BOTH ARE STEAMING PILES OF RAT SHIT …NOT ONE HARD HITTING QUESTION TO RAND PAUL ..

    HOW MANY PEOPLE IN KENTUCKY WILL LOSE THEIR COVERAGE IN THE GOP HEALTHCARE BILL ? HOW MANY WILL LOSE UNDER RANDS PLAN ?

    YOU SEE MY FRIENDS , THE ENTIRE SYSTEM IS BROKEN ….THE MEDIA IS A PILE OF SHIT DECEIVING ALL OF US … THAT'S WHY WE HAVE THIS DEBACLE .

  • u guys would last 3 minutes in the the UK Parliament Get the bill passed on not passed call for revision

  • Lets talk numbers Rand Paul. In 2008 US health care costs per capita were at least 2x higher compared to OECD countries. Did ObamaCare cause high costs even before it come to power? Even before the ObamaCare every other developed country running an OBLIGATORY single payer systems FULL OF REGULATIONS were able to provide their citizens the health care for for a half the price, virtually for free for everybody, no premiums, no deductibles, no preexisting conditions, no high risk pools!
    YOU ARE LYING to your constituents with a straight face senator.

  • "Promised?" After seven years, all the right wigers have is a tax break for themselves?

  • so much ignorance as to how economics works in this comment section.

  • Only Repeal

  • Fuck rand paul!

  • George's questions are manipulative LIESssssssss……I agree with Rand

  • Less gvt, less taxes, more freedom. This republican version is even worse than the original…didn't think that was possible. Repeal and start from scratch.
