Rand Paul: Trump 'fully supports my plan to replace Obamacare'
Sen. Rand Paul on Friday said President-elect Donald Trump "fully supports" his plan to simultaneously repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
"I just spoke to [Trump] and he fully supports my plan to replace Obamacare the same day we repeal it," the Kentucky senator tweeted. "The time to act is now."
During an appearance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Wednesday, the libertarian-leaning senator urged congressional Republicans to not repeal the healthcare law without proposing and passing a replacement bill the same day, warning that insurance companies could go bankrupt and require a bailout if they did not.
