When asked if he could vote for a reconciliation bill that only defunded Planned Parenthood and stopped Obamacare's funding of abortion (but didn't otherwise touch Obamacare), Paul said he did not think he could.

"Going back to this Trumpcare 2, Graham-Cassidy, would shut down that bipartisanship that Americans yearns for".

The grants would provide money to each state to do as it sees fit regarding health care, but with less money, meaning some people would lose Medicaid coverage unless the state was able to fund subsidies. Medicaid was expanded in IL under Obamacare.
The bill crafted by Cassidy and Sen. The group of governor's would like input more input from them.
