(CNSNews.com) – Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), a repeal-and-replace advocate, says he wants to expand the number of people who get health insurance at a cheaper price.
“But I would do it through freedom of choice,” Paul told “Fox News Sunday.” I would do it through the marketplace, buying groups across state lines, and letting people save more money in HSAs.
“And I think the problem with Republicans now is they have insufficient confidence in what made America great. That’s capitalism, freedom of choice, competition.”
Paul opposes the current legislation proposed by Senate Republicans. And in a recent meeting with President Trump, he advocated repeal first and replace later.
President Trump later tweeted that exact same suggestion, saying last week: “If Republican Senators are unable to pass what they are working on now, they should immediately REPEAL, and then REPLACE at a later date!”
“I don’t think we’re getting anywhere with the bill we have, we are at an impasse,” Paul said on Sunday.
