U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said President Barack Obama's health care law probably can't be defeated or gotten rid of. And he's suggesting there is little he and other congressional Republicans can do to stop the law from taking effect.
Speaking to reporters Saturday at a gathering of Michigan Republicans, Paul said Republicans could use votes on measures in the House and in the Senate to come up with compromise legislation. But the Kentucky Republican said that time for that is running out.
An opponent of the law many call "Obamacare," Paul said he's acknowledging that, in his words, "we probably can't defeat or get rid of Obamacare." He said that working from the position of not funding the health care law might help render it, quote, "less bad."
