Recovering from his injuries but still hard at work, Senator Rand Paul, R-Ky., is fighting to ensure that the Senate version of the GOP’s tax reform bill, at the least, will provide much-needed relief to the millions of Americans suffering from the Obamacare health law.

Sen. Paul announced on Twitter:

Using tax reform as a means to repeal the individual health insurance mandate (arguably the most controversial part of Obamacare) is an idea President Trump has floated himself.

The amendment needs to be voted on, but one thing’s for sure: The bruised and battered Rand Paul is still not giving up on the Obamacare and tax-reform fight.

And it’s far past time for Senate Republicans to go on record with their position on this critical, unconstitutional component of Obamacare.
