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.”

But when Rep. Val Demmings (D-FL) asked him why then he felt the need to report it if there was nothing wrong, Morrison struggled to find an answer.

CNN legal analyst flattens Rick Santorum for ridiculous impeachment defense of Trump

Published

on

Former GOP Sen. Rick Santorum was shut down on CNN for his latest defense of President Donald Trump.

Santorum was effectively arguing for people to ignore the words coming from Trump.

"Wait, this argument is insane," Carrie Cordero said. "You cannot argue that the president of the United States' words do not matter or that he's just sort of spouting off or he has his own views."

"The reality is we ignore 80 to 90% of what the president says," Santorum argued. "Look at the tweets, we ignore most of those things he tweets and say 'it's Trump being Trump.'"
