Republicans offer alternative to Obamacare

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- Critics say Obamacare is failing.

Despite the president's only remaining defense that there is no alternative, Republicans now beg to differ.

They have introduced the 2017 project, an alternative to Obamacare.

The proposal would solve the three core problems of Obamacare: getting more people insured, dealing with the problem of pre-existing conditions, and lowering costs.

Republicans say these solutions would justify bringing an end to Obamacare and would pave the way for full repeal.

Republicans emphasize that their plan wouldn't force anyone to buy insurance, and it won't have the near $2-trillion price tag like Obamacare.

Also, they say the plan wouldn't undermine religious liberties and Americans would be allowed to keep their current health insurance plans.
