    Jeb Bush will call for repealing President Obama's healthcare law and lay out a three-point plan for replacing it Tuesday in New Hampshire, the latest in a string of policy proposals from the Republican presidential candidate.

    Bush's plan will focus on promoting innovation, lowering costs and deferring power to states, according to documents detailing the proposal. 

    During a campaign call with donors and supporters, campaign officials said the plan reflects input from people throughout the healthcare industry and lays out a system they said is more suitable for the 21st century.

    In deference to the current law, campaign officials acknowledged moving the country to Bush's plan will need to include a thoughtful transition for Americans now covered under the Affordable Care Act. They also pointed out that coverage for people with pre-existing conditions is included in Bush's plan.
