Rand: GOP Doesn't Need 'Invertebrate Caucus'

On Tuesday at the “Exempt America” rally for defunding Obamacare in Washington, D.C., Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said Republicans did not need the “invertebrate caucus” to confront and fight Democrats and their policies like Obamacare. 

“If he is going to exempt his friends, why won’t he exempt all of us?” Paul said of Obama and his signature healthcare legislation. “This fight is about some backbone. We need some backbone. We need some help.”

Paul added, “We don’t need to be the invertebrate caucus.” He said conservatives needed to be the caucus with the spine, heart, and will to defund Obamacare. 

Paul said conservatives may not win the ultimate battle to fully defund Obamacare but they will never know unless they actually fight.

He also noted that the poor Americans Obama said Obamacare would help are losing insurance in addition to their jobs because of the healthcare law. 

The “Exempt America” rally was a culmination of a multi-state tour organized by Tea Party Patriots and ForAmerica.
