Maybe we should legalize freedom?

Some in Washington, including some Republicans have a plan, which I call "Obamacare Lite" or "If you like your Obamacare, you can keep it."  It's a disaster, and it has to be stopped.

Fortunately, I have a better idea, a better plan, and I've introduced it as legislation in the US Senate.
First, we must repeal Obamacare. As a physician, no one hates Obamacare more than I do.

But the second part is important too, because there are many problems in the underlying system, most of them caused by government.

I have a bold new idea.  Let's LEGALIZE FREEDOM!

And let's repeal rules, mandates and bad policies.

With my plan, you will have the freedom of choice to allow the sale of hundreds of plans, including truly catastrophic ones.  It expands Health Savings Accounts, and it allows anyone to join or start a group to buy insurance at the best rates.

To make my conservative, market-oriented plan THE repeal plan, I need your help, your voice and your financial support.


I also want healthcare to truly be a marketplace again, so a big part of my plan with be unlimited health savings accounts for every American, along with making the tax breaks the same whether or not your employer or you get the insurance.

Tax credits and deductions will help people get money into their Health Savings Account, and we will greatly expand what you can use that money for, including premiums, deductibles, prescriptions, vitamins, gym memberships and more.

It's a great plan that is winning praise by those who have seen it.

Now I have to convince my colleagues to vote on it and for it.

That's why I'm asking you to support RANDPAC and help us continue the fight for healthcare freedom.

I want to show my colleagues that thousands of their constituents stand with me and stand for a free market replacement to Obamacare
  • No more mandates.
  • No more huge tax burden
  • No more federal government takeover
Instead we offer a simple but sweeping set of reforms that will cover millions more and do so more cost effectively.

Will you join me?

Time is short.  These bills are being considered as I write this and next week could be a key week in Congress. It's important I can show my colleagues your support.

As you know, nothing in life is free, so I need your financial support to help win this battle.

So please, share this email, and if you can, donate to RANDPAC so I can contact even more fellow liberty lovers to help.

In Liberty,
Dr Rand Paul

  1. I'm confused. Whenever a mass shooting occurs, you Teabaggers jump up and shout about how the problem is not too many guns, it's mentally ill people with guns.

    So -- why, then, do you vote to give guns to mentally ill people?

    Courtesy of Bloomberg:

    Republicans in Congress began a process Thursday of rescinding a federal rule aimed at preventing people with serious mental-health problems from buying guns, one of the earliest targets in a long list of Obama administration regulations lawmakers plan to reverse.

    Gun-rights groups and some mental-health advocates say the rule, approved in December, was overly broad, established a flawed standard and violated peoples’ due-process rights.

    The House voted 235-180 to disapprove the rule. Republicans are using a special procedure under the Congressional Review Act to undo regulations put in place during the last six months of a previous administration using expedited procedures. The mechanism allows the Senate to circumvent the 60-vote threshold, which means it can be passed without Democratic support.

  2. Has anyone here had enough of Trump's lies?

    It’s already the pattern on jobs. Any time a company announces new jobs, even if they’re just filling positions announced years before, Donald Trump is quick to claim credit. And the media is extraordinarily quick to give it to him. The same thing applies to the second half of Trump’s “winning.’

    “With all of the jobs I am bringing back into the U.S. (even before taking office), with all of the new auto plants coming back into our country and with the massive cost reductions I have negotiated on military purchases and more, I believe the people are seeing ‘big stuff.’”

    At the time Trump wrote this, he had negotiated nothing on military purchases, or anything else. The most he had done was post a pair of tweets on the cost of some military programs. But the media was already crediting him with savings, especially on the F-35 fighter program. But according to Senator Jack Reed, that’s credit which is totally undeserved.

    President Donald Trump claims that his intervention forced Lockheed Martin to reduce the cost of its F-35 airplane to the Pentagon, but the ranking Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee says that's not true. …

    After Spicer took credit for the president Friday, Sen. Jack Reed of Rhode Island, the ranking Armed Services Democrat, responded more bluntly.

    "This is simply taking credit for what's been in the works for many months," Reed told CNBC in a telephone interview. "These are savings that would have happened anyway."

  3. Remember how every time President Obama played golf you rightwingnutcases attacked him for taking time off? Remember that?

    Well, now it's your turn.

    President Donald Trump, who frequently criticized his predecessor for playing too much golf, hit the links for the first time as commander in chief on Saturday — nearly three months before Barack Obama played his first round in 2009.

    Mark Knoller, a White House correspondent for CBS News, reports that Obama didn't play his first round of golf as president until April 26, 2009 -- three months after his inauguration. Trump, meanwhile, teed off on Saturday morning — 15 days into his presidency — at his Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach.
