Counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway said Sunday that “the Republican plan” to replace Obamacare, should the Affordable Care Act be eliminated in court, is “manifold.”

But she couldn’t say much about it for the record.

In an interview Sunday with Conway, “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace got little detail from the top White House spokesperson aside from “We’re going to offer higher quality, lower costs, more choices and less hassle.”

“There is a plan,” Conway protested when Wallace said there wasn’t one. “We’ve been working on a plan for a long time, and we hope that Congress will come along.”
