Rand Paul: The Kentucky ObamaCare exchange enrolled my son in Medicaid

“We didn’t try to get him Medicaid, I’m trying to pay for his insurance,” Paul said, “but they automatically enrolled him in Medicaid. For a month they wouldn’t talk to him because they said they weren’t sure he existed. He had to go down to the welfare office, prove his existence, then next thing we know, we get a Medicaid card.” Extrapolating from his son’s experience, the senator argued that in Kentucky – whose state-run exchange, set up with the support of Democratic governor Steve Beshear, has been heralded as a success — many are being automatically, and erroneously, enrolled in Medicaid.
