Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) added his voice to a growing number of lawmakers seeking to defund Obamacare [1]. Appearing on Fox News’ “Hannity” last night, Paul said momentum is building [2], noting that “Everywhere I go, people say, defund Obamacare.”

Here’s why he’s so passionate about defunding Obamacare:

We want to defund Obamacare. We want to defund a disastrous program that is going to bankrupt state governments, is going to bankrupt individuals, is going to cause people to lose their insurance and is going to really hurt precisely the people you want to help, the working class people who are working hourly jobs at McDonald’s or Burger King or working in the service industry, we are afraid they are going to lose hours and become part-time workers as people discover how expensive insurance is going to be. We are standing up for what we believe in and we want to use the leverage of the people who voted for us to try to get reform in government. I don’t see how anybody could criticize that.
