Ron Paul: Cut overseas spending to pay for health care

Published

on

Rep. Ron Paul has been an opponent against the Democrat’s plan to reform health care. Paul believes that programs like Medicaid, Medicaid, and Veteran’s care could be better provided by private insurance. “It doesn’t make any sense. It’s a total failure to run anything by a bureaucracy, it always costs more and the services are always less favorable,” Paul told CNN’s Kiran Chetry.

“I would like to see with the government out completely because that would be a much better system,” said Paul. But he knows the reality is that government will continue to provide some health care programs like Medicare and Medicaid. “You don’t want to cut under these [economic] conditions medical care from poor people who have been dependent or the elderly. I would cut from overseas spending I would cut from these trillions and trillions of dollars that we have spent over the years and bring our troops home so that we can finance it.”

Lewandowski attempted to claim that he couldn't answer any questions about special counsel Robert Mueller's account because he hadn't read it. But the information he personally gave to Mueller was enough to corner both men.

"I mean, Donald Trump has been found to have committed felony finance crimes by the Southern District of New York. Donald Trump has been found -- committed ten acts of criminal obstruction of justice by Robert Mueller and his investigators," host Nicolle Wallace said. "And I think what Ron was just sort of pulling the curtain back on is his suspicion that that may not be the headline, that Corey Lewandowski today confirmed at least two of those instances of criminal obstruction of justice."

"The American people deserve to know the truth."
