Trump said to back health repeal, replace combo

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - Trump said to back health repeal, replace combo.
    
Republican Sen. Rand Paul says President-elect Donald Trump "fully supports" repealing President Barack Obama's health law only when there's a viable alternative to replace it.
    
Republican leaders in the GOP-controlled Congress are moving toward a vote on repeal legislation in coming weeks. But they anticipate a transition period of months or years to a replacement.
    
Some Republicans are expressing reservations about scrapping the law without a near-term replacement.
    
Paul, a Kentucky lawmaker who sought his party's 2016 presidential nomination, said in a tweet late Friday that he spoke with Trump, and that the president-elect "fully supports my plan to replace Obamacare the same day we repeal it. The time to act is now."
