Thread: The Return of Rand Paul

    Default The Return of Rand Paul

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/th...rticle/2616635

    Sen. Rand Paul's days-long quest to find the House Republican bill to repeal and replace Obamacare was derided by GOP lawmakers as a "publicity stunt," but it might just put the Kentucky congressman back in the mix when it comes to influencing Congress as it prepares to make a series of key policy decisions.
    If he can get there, it would be a comeback of sorts for a senator who rode the libertarian wave to prominence. Trump's election victory was widely viewed as an end to that wave — Trump is not a civil libertarian, an entitlement reformer or a spending cutter. But Trump ran five points ahead of Paul in Kentucky where they were both on the ballot in November.

    Well, here's hoping. I get the feeling they like nothing more than to pull the rug out from under him every time he gathers a little steam. They use him like a puppy on a choke chain.

    If Rand & Co kill this bill, don't be surprised if the Trump wing brings in some Dems to force this $#@! through.

    ...which may actually be the best outcome long-term, as we need an open break between conservatives and Trumpians to regain our momentum.
