Republican lawmakers are working once again on a plan to dismantle and replace Obama's signature healthcare law.

Wilson reportedly told the crowd on Monday he is working with Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price on a new proposal.

"By having the ability of buying insurance across state lines, association health plans and by increasing the ability of health savings accounts, we would provide choice that ObamaCare simply has not presented," he said. "And it wouldn't impact employment, it would give them more choice as well."
