Rand Paul Says Kentucky's Obamacare Site is a Mess, Issued Son a Medicaid card

Despite the fact that the Kentucky senator makes $174,000 a year in salary


Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., poked a hole Sunday in the argument that the ObamaCare rollout is on the upswing and that Kentucky's state-run program is a model of excellence, saying it mistakenly issued his son a Medicaid card.

Paul—a doctor who left the medical profession to join Congress in 2010 and whose base Senate salary is $174,000—says he makes enough money that he doesn't need Medicaid, which helps low-income families.

Nevertheless, the Kentucky exchange put his son into the Medicaid program after Paul went online to register him for ObamaCare, he said.
