Rand Paul BLASTS ObamaCare – Says Son Was Erroneously Sent Medicaid Card (Video)

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) was on This Week with George Stephanopoulos today to discuss Obamacare among other issues. The Kentucky senator said he didn’t know if his family was insured but his son was erroneously sent a Medicaid card.

“This is an unfolding disaster that I don’t think gets better anytime soon.”

From the video:

“We didn’t try to get him Medicaid, I’m trying to pay for his insurance,” Paul said, “but they automatically enrolled him in Medicaid. For a month they wouldn’t talk to him because they said they weren’t sure he existed. He had to go down to the welfare office, prove his existence, then next thing we know, we get a Medicaid card.”

The Obama administration came out with new Obamacare numbers last week.
Almost twice as many Americans have signed up for the taxpayer-funded Medicaid as the private Obamacare plans.

2.1 million have signed up for Obamacare
3.9 million have signed up for the Medicaid coverage with Obamacare
6.1 million Americans have lost their insurance due to Obamacare
