On Sunday, Senator Rand Paul golfed at Trump National Golf Club outside Washington D.C. with President Trump.
The outing came just hours after Trump tweeted that talks to rework the nation's healthcare law were still under way.
Here's where things get interesting.
Rand has been a severe critic of the President's healthcare plan but following the round of golf, Rand tweeted this:
But Rand and Trump are far off on Obamacare and how to change it. What is noteworthy is that days before House Speaker Paul Ryan declared that he didn't have the votes to get the Ryan-Trump healthcare bill passed in the House, Rand had said it wouldn't pass. He was way ahead of Ryan. In the Trump tally box, this means that Rand was a "winner" on the call.I had a great time today with @realDonaldTrump and believe we are getting closer to an agreement on health care!— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) April 2, 2017
At the time, Rand promoted the idea of two separate votes one for repeal and another for replace.
Rand is correct. Repeal would get the Freedom Caucus votes and it would pass in the House. Will Trump now listen to Rand and hold a repeal vote?
What else could Rand be tweeting about other than repeal when he tweets that Trump is getting closer to an agreement?
If a repeal vote does take place. I really don't care if a replace vote ever passes, Indeed, it would be better that the socialistic Obamacare plan is not replaced with a Trump socialist plan.
