Sen. Rand Paul speaks at the signing ceremony for President Trump's executive order directing his administration to find ways to increase competition in the health care industry.
SEN. RAND PAUL: Today's a big day. President Trump is doing what I believe is the biggest free market reform of health care in a generation. This reform, if it works and goes as planned, will allow millions of people to get insurance across state lines at an inexpensive price.
28 million people were left behind by Obamacare. [They] do not have insurance today.
This specifically targets and will help people who don't have insurance, or people for whom insurance is too expensive. I'm very glad to be part of this, and I really want to commend the president for having the boldness and the leadership and the foresight to get this done.
