Consider Paul Ryan’s feel-good meeting with Senate Republicans on Tuesday. The House speaker trekked across the Capitol to reassure senators that lawmakers are making more progress toward repealing the health care law than the media are reporting.
But not everyone was buying it. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) left before it was over, having heard enough of a conversation that he says centers around keeping Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion intact and creating tax credits that he called a “new entitlement program,” though a Republican in the room rebutted the notion that the topic of Medicaid expansion came up in the Tuesday meeting with Ryan.
“I hear things that are unacceptable to me,” Paul said in an interview afterward. “If they don’t seem to care what conservatives think about complete repeal of Obamacare, they’re going to be shocked when they count the votes.”
Rand Paul is one of the only members of the Senate who is not owned so it’s unsurprising that he’s going to butt heads with a man in Paul Ryan who is bought and paid for from top to bottom. Ryan, McCain, Graham are all taking money from George Soros. As I’ve said before, Trump’s biggest challenge will be his own party. He will need to take this message straight to the voters and we have to respond by putting pressure on these treasonous pieces of shit to do the right thing.
Once again, great fucking job, Wisconsin.
