    What did anybody expect? It's not like he's worried about upholding campaign promises anymore.

    I would say he is more about sticking it to Trump & upholding the Swamp

    He needs to step aside and spend his last days at home with family.

    He's had how many years to work with Dems and yet he doesn't think "we've" tried. Pathetic what he and so many others have turned our government into.

    So he is a bad Republican because he doesn't agree with the prez?

    You forget that he loves the press fawning over him as the "maverick".

    It's all self-aggrandizement, and he gets a two-fer by poking Trump in the eye.

    He's a bad Republican for many other reasons.

    Rand Paul won't vote for it and he is not a bad Republican.

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) pushed back on Friday against pressure from President Trump to vote for a last-ditch GOP effort in the Senate to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, saying that he "won't be bribed or bullied."

    In an early-morning tweet, Trump warned Paul that if he failed to vote for Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Bill Cassidy's (R-La.) health-care proposal, he would forever be known as "'the Republican who saved ObamaCare.'"

    But in a series of tweets following the president's post, Paul contended that the Graham-Cassidy measure does not fulfill the GOP's longtime promise to repeal the ACA, and ultimately keeps ObamaCare's taxes and spending.

    From Twitter:

    No one is more opposed to Obamacare than I am, and I've voted multiple times for repeal. The current bill isn't repeal.

    7:37 AM - Sep 22, 2017

    I won't vote for Obamacare Lite that keeps 90% of the taxes & spending just so some people can claim credit for something that didn't happen

    7:38 AM - Sep 22, 2017

    Calling a bill that KEEPS most of Obamacare "repeal" doesn't make it true. That's what the swamp does. I won't be bribed or bullied.

    McCain lied to his constituents in order to get re-elected last year. He ran on Repealing & Replacing Obamacare. He gave his opponent, Ann Kirkpatrick, a hard time because she suggested that Repubs & Dems sit down and work together to fix Obamacare...
