Rand Paul: Trump’s Wall Deal Is “Big Victory” Over Democrats

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) praised President Donald Trump’s deal with congressional Democrats as a major concession by the opposition to Trump’s drive for border security funding. “I think in the end, Trump won a big victory here, because everybody else had folded,” Paul told Breitbart News. “At Christmastime, everybody else was folding, and just saying, ‘Oh the Democrats gained control of the House, this is the best that we’ll ever do.’ So he got $1.375 billion for border security that wasn’t in there before.” Keep Reading

Can President Trump And Rand Paul Save Healthcare?

Last week, Donald Trump signed a new executive order facilitating more flexibility for consumers of health insurance. The order allows for more flexibility in purchasing insurance across state lines, and greater freedom for both small businesses and groups of consumers in creating “association health plans” (AHPs). In theory, this will broaden access to the benefits currently enjoyed only by those with employment-based insurance, and other types of group insurance. The order also paves the way for healthcare reforms long favored by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) who believes the reforms will help bring down healthcare costs. Keep Reading
