The new legislation would transform Obamacare subsidies into state block grants, which could then be spent by the individual states as they see fit. The bill also rescinds the Obamacare mandates on individuals and small businesses.
Sen. Paul has harshly criticized the new GOP effort, referring to the plan as “Obamacare light.”
Speaking on the Sean Hannity Show, Paul slammed the bill, saying it retained 90% of Obamacare taxes and government payouts.
“As a physician, I’ve seen Obamacare up close and personal, and it doesn’t work, it’s a horror. I think we all agree that it’s a terrible system, but I want to repeal it,” said Paul. “The Graham-Cassidy bill keeps 90% of the spending, 90% of the taxes, and then just re-shuffles the formula to send the money to Republican states.”
