Republican Replacement for ObamaCare Passes the House. Rand Paul Objects to $300 Billion In Insurance Company Profits Guaranteed by Taxpayers

Senator Rand Paul objects to the Republican version of ObamaCare, because federal money will be used to guarantee at least $300 billion for insurance-company profit. He also wants to stop the “refundable tax credit”, which is a subsidy by another name.  He says it boggles his mind how these became a Republican idea.  He says the programs will be there ‘forever’ [meaning until America collapses in economic ruin]. -GEG

Neil Cavuto remarked that it sounds like Paul would be a “no” vote right now.
