Rand Paul wants to make it unconstitutional for the federal government to provide subsidized insurance to federal employees, including that big conservative bully Justice Roberts.
“My amendment says basically that everybody including Justice Roberts — who seems to be such a fan of Obamacare — gets it too,” Paul told the Daily Caller. “See, right now, Justice Roberts is still continuing to have federal employee health insurance subsidized by the taxpayer,” Paul said. “And if he likes Obamacare so much, I’m going to give him an amendment that gives Obamacare to Justice Roberts.”
Rand Paul also continues to have federal employee health insurance subsidized by the taxpayer.
But why stop there? Why don’t we make it unconstitutional for corporations like Wal-Mart to force taxpayers into subsidizing healthcare for their employees by intentionally paying them so little as to qualify for Medicaid? Did you know a single Wal-Mart store can cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars per year? Gasp!
No, Rand Paul would never go that far. That’s Wal-Mart’s Liberty — corporations are people too, my friend — and the federal government is the Great Satan.
Libertarians are a festering scourge.
