Rand Paul Says Trump's Obamacare Order 'Has The Potential To Be Amazing'

Rand Paul Says Trump's Obamacare Order 'Has The Potential To Be Amazing'

Paul has been advocating for the plans in the White House, with Congress and across Kentucky.

Paul was at UPS for a round table on tax reform, but the topic quickly shifted to health care ahead of Trump's announcement about his Executive Order.

And while Paul admitted he doesn't know specifics, he said he's discussed his ideas with Trump and believes they'll be addressed.

Paul, a Republican from Bowling Green, has been promoting the concept of "association health plans" that allow Americans to purchase health insurance across state lines. The senator said that the proposal would likely provide millions of people now without insurance under Obamacare the opportunity to obtain "low-cost options". "Big insurance is going to have to come on bended knee to the consumers", Paul told Hannity.

Trump signed an executive order Thursday that charged a number of federal agencies with finding ways to expand access to health insurance plans that are outside of Obamacare regulations. And it would, hopefully, eliminate the arbitrary state lines policy, meaning your company could purchase insurance from an out-of-state provider. He's called most of the previous proposals "Obamacare lite", and said he would not be bullied into supporting anything he didn't feel was a real move forward.

Paul said the president's action approving association health plans is an important first step in moving away from the Affordable Care Act.
