Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., isn't ready to give up yet on repealing and replacing Obamacare after the House GOP pulled the American Health Care Act from a vote on Friday, despite President Trump's insisting that his administration is moving on to tax reform.

"I think legislators can walk and chew gum hopefully at the same time, so why don't we do both? Why don't we set up a special committee," Paul told Fox News fill-in host Eric Bolling on "The O'Reilly Factor" Friday evening.

Paul, who was an ally to the House Freedom Caucus in their holdout over the Obamacare replacement bill, said the Trump administration should host the group, as well as House and Senate leadership at the White House and begin a "continuing conversation" about overturning the Affordable Care Act. Trump had met with members of the HFC multiple times during the past few days in the run-up to the expected vote.
