Rand Paul: Obama Really Did Try to Help Get More People Health Care

‘It didn’t work but I don’t think he was trying to kill people’


PAUL: "It is absolutely false. I would say, ignorance, hyperbole. I think it's such hyperbole, so outlandish, the most common sense Americans will say, what in the world are they talking about? Are they really serious? Look, we can have different opinions in our country and, by President Obama, I thought was trying to do the best work for his people. He really did try to get people health care. It didn't work, but I don't think he was trying to kill people. Likewise, Republicans, were trying to do the same. More health insurance for people on a cheaper price, but none of us is going to allow people to die in the streets. I took an oath. When I work in a hospital, I can only work in the hospital if I see everyone. As part of the arrangement or privilege for the same for me to work in hospital. I agree to treat all newcomers. When they say things like that, I think, they destroy their own argument with such excessive, outlandish comments."
