Rand Paul: ObamaCare Automatically Enrolled My Son in Medicaid

‘This is an unfolding disaster that I don’t think gets better anytime soon’

Rand Paul’s Obamacare Horror Story : Kentucky ‘Automatically Enrolled’ My Son in Medicaid (Mediaite)

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) appeared on ABC’s This Week on Sunday with a surprising revelation: his own family was experiencing issues while attempting to comply with the mandates associated with the Affordable Care Act. He said that the state’s insurance exchanges would not talk with him directly for weeks and he discovered that, without his knowledge, that his own son was “automatically enrolled” in Medicaid.

“At this point I’m unsure,” Paul said when asked by host George Stephanopoulos whether his family had successfully enrolled in the ACA.

He produced his son’s new Medicaid card. “We didn’t try to get him Medicaid,” Paul said. “I’m trying to pay for his insurance, but they automatically enrolled him in Medicaid.”
