Senate candidate Marco Rubio is again calling for the repeal of President Obama's health care legislation.

Meeting with the Florida Medical Association on Wednesday, the Republican said the law should be replaced with simpler measures.

He's offering some familiar GOP talking points on health care, including a focus on medical malpractice reform and giving individuals the same tax breaks as businesses when they buy insurance.

Rubio is also calling for more community health centers and incentives for the use of electronic medical records.
