Both are Kentucky senators but one, Rand Paul, remains a free-thinker removed from the trappings of the D.C. Swamp. The other is Mitch McConnell, the epitome of the swamp and the current Senate Majority Leader. Today Senator Paul broke rank and went public with his plan to tie the proposed tax cut/reform legislation to the elimination of the Obamacare mandate – a move that would effectively kill the highly unpopular and insanely expensive federal healthcare program
Let’s hope Senator Paul’s amendment is successful. We shall see.
Word is Mitch McConnell is none too pleased with the effort.
