Sen. Rand Paul urged Sunday a "clean repeal like we promised" for Obamacare, deriding a current Senate proposal as one that offers a healthcare law replacement that's "Obamacare-lite."

In remarks on Fox News Sunday, the Kentucky Republican said he favors two bills to repeal and replace former President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act.

"Let's do clean repeal like we promised," Paul said. "I think you can get 52 Republicans for clean repeal. You can have a simultaneous bill or a concurrent bill that they can call replace and that I think, perhaps if it's big spending, they could probably get Democrats to go along with big spending."

"I'm not for that, but I'm saying I want repeal to work, and the way you do it is you separate it into two bills and you do it concurrently," he added.

Paul asserted that most of his Senate colleagues think the current replacement plan is simply replacing Obamacare with "Obamacare-lite."

"Here's the problem ... I don't think we're getting anywhere with the bill we have. We're at an impasse. Every time you add federal money, more spending, for the big government Republicans, it offends the conservatives," he said. "So right now, this bill, which is not a repeal, has become the kitchen sink."

"The bill is just being lit up like a Christmas tree full of billion-dollar ornaments, and it's not repeal."
