Speaking of RINOs... who knew that Rand Paul supported Obama Care?

Bad enough that Paul has caved on illegal aliens... but now, we can add Obamacare to the RINO mix:
5)    Embraced Obamacare. What better way for Republicans to distinguish themselves from Democrats than by agreeing to eliminate the special health care subsidy given to members of Congress by the Obama administration?  Under the law, members of Congress and their staffs cannot get any subsidies to shield themselves from the cost of the exchanges, yet Obama illegally wrote a rule granting them subsidies in contravention to the statute.  When Sen. Vitter, as Chairman of the Small Business Committee, tried to subpoena the D.C. government in an attempt to ascertain which members of Congress helped secure these subsidies, he was rebuffed by his own members on the committee.  Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY), Deb Fischer (R-NE), Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Mike Enzi (R-WY), and Jim Risch (R-ID) joined with Democrats to oppose the subpoena.  They gave every excuse under the sun, but it’s quite evident why they want to keep their subsidies.
You Rand Paul bots knew this... right?
