TAMPA-U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) wasted no time during his floor speech at the Republican National Convention in tearing into President Barack Obama's signature policy achievement.

"When the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare, the first words out of my mouth were: I still think it is unconstitutional!" Paul told delegates in one of the opening speeches of the Wednesday night program.

"The leftwing blogs were merciless. Even my wife said -- can't you pleeeease count to ten before you speak?" he continued. "So, I've had time now to count to ten and, you know what? I still think it's unconstitutional!"
