Chuck Todd to Rand Paul: Are You Lying When You Say You're Going To Repeal Obamacare?


CHUCK TODD, MEET THE PRESS: Let's talk about a Republican agenda if you get control. Are Republicans going to send a repeal of health care, a repeal of the Affordable Care Act, to the president's desk or not? Mitch McConnell has said that was a priority, and then he has said, "Well, we don't have 60 votes. So, it's not going to happen." Then he had said, "Well, maybe with 51 ones votes we can do it." Are you lying to your base when you say you're going to try to repeal health care? Or, I mean, is it a serious effort? Or is it just something to gin-up base turnout?

RAND PAUL: No. I think we should repeal Obamacare. And I think what's made people most unhappy about it is they've lost their freedom of choice. It isn't about the wonky health care policy. It's about whether every American can choose their doctor or choose their insurance policy. When they have made it illegal through Obamacare for you to choose an inexpensive insurance policy, that should be overturned.

CHUCK TODD: So, it's a priority?

RAND PAUL: We will definitely have a priority. And we will introduce it and try to pass it.
