Breaking: Rand Paul Admits ‘We Probably Can’t Defeat Or Get Rid Of Obamacare’

Rand Paul, who is carefully plotting his path to win the White House, this afternoon finally admitted what much of America has known for a long time. The Tea Party Republican senator from Kentucky said he’s “acknowledging that we probably can’t defeat or get rid of Obamacare,” but suggested “by starting with our position of not funding it maybe we get to a position where we make it less bad.”

Speaking with reporters at the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference in Michigan, the libertarian son of former Congressman Ron Paul spoke against shutting down the government over Obamacare.

“In the end the sausage factory in Washington will make sausage,” Paul told The Detroit News. “Nothing good will happen though. They’ll pass a continuing resolution. When they do that though, they’re acknowledging that we’re borrowing $30,000 a second and I think that’s unconscionable.”

He also spoke pessimistically about the GOP’s chances of successful obstruction. “Because Democrats perceive disunity, our leverage doesn’t really work,” Paul said. “Leverage doesn’t work unless people believe you’ll actually do something. The fact that Democrats don’t believe we’ll do anything, in the end they’ll get what they want and a bill will be cobbled together.”

The 50-year old freshman senator has been working closely with David Lane, an evangelical political operative who is largely funded by the Mississippi-based American Family Association. Lane’s expertise is reportedly in getting out the vote, and convincing evangelicals to vote for candidates they find less-than appealing. His daughter, Jillian Lane, is a staffer working for Senator Paul in his D.C. office.

Lane, who recently demanded war against “pagan” imposed “homosexual marriage,” is planning an October trip to Israel for the radical right wing Republicans lining up in a premature race to 2016. In addition to Senator Paul, rumored to be on the trip to Jerusalem is Senator Ted Cruz.

In a July World Net Daily op-ed, Lane, head of the AFA’s American Renewal Project and virulently anti-gay, wrote:

“Where are the champions of Christ to save the nation from the pagan onslaught imposing homosexual marriage, homosexual scouts, 60 million babies done to death by abortion and red ink as far as the eye can see on America?”

“Who will wage war for the Soul of America and trust the living God to deliver the pagan gods into our hands and restore America to her Judeo-Christian heritage and re-establish a Christian culture?”

And when millions of Americans see their medical bills cut to fraction of what they are paying now, along with the peace of mind that comes from not worrying about being plunged into bankruptcy with one accident or major illness, The Republicans will be falling all over themselves trying to deny they were against Obamacare. The phrase, "opposed Obamacare" will be used in attack ads against them in years to come.
