US senator says Republicans 'can't defeat or get rid of' Obamacare

Washington, Sept. 22 (ANI): A US lawmaker has said President Barack Obama's health care law probably can't be defeated or gotten rid of.

Republican Senator Rand Paul suggested there is little he and other congressional Republicans can do to stop the law from coming into effect.

Speaking to reporters at a gathering of Michigan Republicans, he said Republicans could use votes on measures in the House and in the Senate to come up with compromise legislation.

According to the Washington Times, he added that the 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.' (ANI)
