Rand Paul Struggling To Sign Up For Health Care (VIDEO)


Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is “unsure” whether or not he has signed up for insurance under the health care law.

“I’m trying to pay for insurance and can’t pay for it. And I’m uncertain now whether I’m enrolled DC and/or Kentucky,” he said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” “And it’s a mess.”

Paul said that his son was accidentally signed up for Medicaid, rather than for an individual health insurance plan.

“I actually tried to get my son signed up through the Kentucky exchange, you know, that the Democrats have said is so good. And I have here my son’s Medicaid card,” he said. “We didn’t try to get him Medicaid, I’m trying to pay for his insurance. But they automatically enrolled him in Medicaid.”

The Kentucky senator said this is happening to people throughout the state.

“So, really, most of the people in Kentucky are automatically being enrolled in Medicaid,” he said. “I think it’s really — this is an unfolding disaster that I don’t think gets better any time soon.”
