(FOX NEWS) – Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Sunday previewed his ObamaCare replacement plan — in an apparent effort to take the lead in the growing GOP effort to simultaneously repeal and replace the 2010 health care law.
Paul, who was a 2016 presidential candidate, said the bill that he and other congressional Republicans have crafted attempts to “insure the most amount of people, give access to the most amount of people, at the least amount of cost.”
Paul, a physician, has emerged in recent weeks as a leader in the repeal-replace effort, amid Republican concerns that fulfilling campaign vows to dismantle ObamaCare at the start of the 115th Congress could leave tens of millions of Americans uninsured.
Incoming Republican President Donald Trump has expressed similar concerns, despite campaigning on a winning repeal-replace agenda.

As much as I think Obamacare’s a mistake, just ignoring the debt to get to Obamacare is also a mistake. pic.twitter.com/imAcw7wV6S

I just spoke to @realDonaldTrump and he fully supports my plan to replace Obamacare the same day we repeal it. The time to act is now.

As @realDonaldTrump said this AM we will repeal Obamacare and replace it together. I’ll continue to work with him and Senators on the plan.
