Kentucky Senator Rand Paul said that he tried to sign up his son through the Kentucky healthcare exchange, “you know the one that the Democrats said was so good,” but that he was “erroneously” sent a Medicaid card instead.
Sunday on ABC This Week, the Senator held up the Medicaid card and explained that he was not trying to get his son Medicaid, but that he was trying to pay for his insurance. “They automatically enrolled him in Medicaid," he remarked. "For a month, they wouldn't talk to us because they said they weren't sure he existed. He had to go down to the welfare office, prove his existence. Then the next thing we know, we get a Medicaid card."
