Rand Paul Defends Disapproval of Health Care Law on “The Daily Show”

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul was Monday night's guest on "The Daily Show" where he continued his attacks on the Affordable Care Act.

"I'm afraid that it's going to be unaffordable and that's the real problem. I'm afraid everyone will pay a lot more for insurance and I think precisely the people it was intended to help it may well hurt," Paul said to fill-in host John Oliver.

Paul, a potential contender for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 and an ardent supporter of small government and tea party policies, appeared on the show to talk about his new book "Government Bullies: How Everyday Americans Are Being Harassed, Abused, and Imprisoned by the Feds."

But the health care law debate dominated much of the discussion in which Paul gave several examples as to why the health care law is a bad idea.

But Oliver interjected when Paul began to talk about Oliver's home country, England, when he tried to cite problems with the health care model there.

"If I get sick, I'll get on a plane and go back because they'll take care of me," Oliver joked.
