(NationalSentinel) Healthcare Reform: After playing a round of golf with President Donald J. Trump this weekend, Sen. Rand Paul emerged more confident that Congress and the president will be able to deliver on Republicans’ promise to repeal and replace the tanking Obamacare.
“We had a great day with the president. Played some golf, and we talked and we talked about a little bit of health care,” Paul told reporters after the game. “I continue to be very optimistic that we are getting closer and closer to an agreement on repealing Obamacare.”
Paul has been one of the most conservative voices in moving towards repealing and replacing a health “reform” law that is destroying the health insurance industry while forcing tens of millions of Americans to pay exorbitant monthly premiums for plans with sky-high deductibles and other out-of-pocket expenses – that is, if they can even afford coverage.
Earlier in the week, Breitbart News noted, Paul met with news aggregator giant Matt Drudge, founder of the hugely popular and right-leaning Drudge Report, to discuss the future of the country.
“Intriguing lunch in hill office of America’s best senator, Rand Paul,” Drudge wrote afterwards on Twitter. “He’s bold, brave and has somehow kept his heart in such a corrupt city.”
Paul predicted that the health reform bill introduced by Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and backed by the president would be pulled before a vote was held because it didn’t have enough support, a prediction that turned out to be correct.
