Republican Sen. Rand Paul says President Barack Obama's health care law probably can't be defeated or gotten rid of. And he's suggesting there are few ways and little time for him and other congressional Republicans to stop it.

Noted. So, is he speaking for the whole party? Seems like there's a bit of a split in the GOP.....

Don't want to get rid of the ACA, but maybe we can get rid of Rand Paul.

I can not believe I am agreeing with Rand Paul but he is correct. Obama care or ACA is here until we finally do have some one that can Universal health care through the Congress. Obama is not going to end his signature piece of legislation, and even with the ongoing campaigns to convince people they don't want Obama care, those states that have started exchanges have seen significant savings. Maybe, just maybe it's time for the hysteria to end and allow Cruz to eat some humble pie. I will not hold my breath waiting this guy with the enormous ego, to apologize. McCarthy didn't apologize either.

To answer Lois Jordan, the answer is technically yes, there is a split in the Republican party. Senator Paul, like his father Ron Paul, is a libertarian, which means essentially as little governmental interference as possible at the lowest cost to the constituency. For all their talk on saving the taxpayer money, Republicans in general don't seem to care that a government shutdown will cost the average American a lot of money. So they interfere in the actual governmental workings, run up a tab, and then accuse Democrats of too much governmental interference and taxation. Paul is simply saying the fight isn't worth running up the tab on the American taxpayer.

I think that I will kiss the ground now. Kissy, kissy, kiss! Last week I had to go to the ER as I was in pain from doing whatever to my neck - was seen my the ER doctor, went home...did not see one bill and never will as we have universal health care. Kiss, kiss that ground. If I should ever need an operation or other health care including seeing the family doctor or specialists, I never see a bill either. We might have longer and colder winters but at least we never worry about losing the house over a medical bill or having extreme right wingers. We have our share but compared to some of the right wingers in the U.S., they almost look liberal. (Not quite as evolved but even they wouldn't try teabagger insanity).
