GOP senator to Trump: 'I won't be bribed or bullied on Obamacare repeal vote'

A US GOP Senator has announced his displeasure against pressure to vote for the latest Senate plan aimed at repealing Obamacare, saying he “won’t be bribed or bullied.”

Kentucky Republican Rand Paul’s comments came following US President Donald Trump’s tweets claiming that if he failed to vote for the Graham-Cassidy bill, he would be recognized as the senator who “saved” the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

The plan described as the Graham-Cassidy bill is after the two Republican senators — Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana — who sponsored it.

“No one is more opposed to Obamacare than I am, and I’ve voted multiple times for repeal. The current bill isn’t repeal,” Paul said on Friday.

He further said that he “won’t vote for Obamacare Lite that keeps 90% of the taxes & spending just so some people can claim credit for something that didn’t happen.”
