Sen. Rand Paul: 'I'm Going On The Exchanges'

Sen. Rand Paul, who's been calling for the two houses to go to conference, said he would support passing a continuing resolution that would fund the government for a week or two and allow lawmakers to reach an agreement in the meantime.

"I do agree that negotiating with the government closed probably to them appears like strong arm tactics," the Kentucky Republican said on "New Day."

    PAUL lied in this interview. He said there are only two options in Kentucky, and one of them does not cover out-of-state medical expenses. Factcheck: go to the government exchange website for Kentucky. Three companies offer 50 different exchange options. All of them cover out-of-state illnesses. LIar liar pants on fire! Typical Tea Party tactic – tell the BIG LIE and hope nobody notices. Josef Goebbels must be smiling in his grave.

    I heard the Senator state that he "has to go to the Marketplace in his State to enroll in insurance", and that the plans will not cover him out of State, so if he should suffer a heartattack while working in Washington, he will not be covered. I don't understand how the Senator is making policy decisions and he doesn't seem to know the facts about the ACA.
    Is the Senator uninsured? If so is he seeking to find out if he qualifies for a Premium Tax Incentive or Cost Sharing Reduction based on his income? Otherwise, he shoulld not "need to go to his State's Marketplace" to gain health insurance! It is for uninusred individuals that either cannot afford coverage or have been denied for a preexisting condition. Please, Senator, are you one of those unfortunate citizens?! Stop the nonsensical rambling and get your facts straight. If you truly are uninsured, unless you have a preexisting condition (which won't matter come January 1), you can shop for health insurance without going through the Marketplace. Again, unless you feel you can't afford coverage and are seeking assistance, which I have a difficult time believing is your current situation. Sour grapes appears to be causing brainwash...
