Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on Monday outlined three approaches that a plan to replace the Affordable Care Act should include.

President Donald Trump said last week the GOP "will soon be known as the party of healthcare," just after the Justice Department announced it supported a recent ruling against the ACA. 

"Obamacare cannot be fixed; it must be replaced," Graham said in a press release. 

"My goal is to provide better coverage to Americans at a lower cost. The best way to achieve that is through flexibility and innovation," he continued.

Graham said the Republican plan should:

  1. "Reaffirm and ensure that preexisting conditions are covered so that no American can be denied healthcare coverage."
  2. "Reallocate the funds currently spent on Obamacare fairly among the states."
  3. And "Empower the states to chart their own course in providing high-quality healthcare."

He added:

"If states like California, Vermont, and Massachusetts want 'Medicare for All' — be my guest. South Carolina, and many others, will likely choose a much different path, taking healthcare dollars and directing them to new innovative approaches. The best ideas will ultimately win out."
