Rand Paul Finally Gaining Support On Healthcare
Article from The Liberty Conservative by Eduardo Rivero.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told MSNBC on Wednesday that President Donald Trump intends to respond to the failure of the Graham-Cassidy Obamacare repeal legislation by taking executive action to enact Paul’s “Associated Health Plans” health care reform proposal.
“I think there’s going to be big news from the White House in the next week or two, as something they can do on their own,” Paul said. “This is something I’ve been advocating for six months and I think it’s bigger than Graham-Cassidy, it’s bigger than any reform that we’ve even talked about to date, but hasn’t got enough attention.”
The Paul proposal permits small businesses and individuals to club together in order to buy insurance at lower prices.
“I believe that President Trump can legalize, on his own, the ability of individuals to join a group, or a health association, across state lines, and buy insurance,” Paul stated. “This would give enormous leverage to bringing down prices and it would also give protection to individuals that feel left out, hung out to dry.”
