On Wednesday, members of the U.S. House Freedom Caucus and U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) held a press conference to call for repealing Obamacare and immediately replacing it with conservative, free-market reforms.

At the press conference, the Freedom Caucus announced its support Sen. Paul’s Obamacare Replacement Act (S. 222), with U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford introducing companion legislation the group will work to advance in the House.

“This legislation is the conservative solution to replacing Obamacare, and it will enable millions more to acquire affordable insurance through the free market,” said Sen. Paul.

Paul said, “I’m honored to have the House Freedom Caucus’ endorsement of my plan to keep the commitment we have made to the American people.

“This proposal will insure the most amount of people at the least amount of cost, and it will do so by putting individuals and families back in charge of their health care decisions.”

Last week, Sen. Paul’s replacement plan garnered the endorsement of FreedomWorks.
