Edited to add:
The Conway campaign lifted the sound bite for the new ad from a YouTube clip of Paul speaking to the Center-Right Coalition in Lexington:

Paul's quote in context:

"What's the problem in medicine? No price fluctuation. If you're over 65 and you go to a doctor in this country, you pay the exact same price with every doctor in the whole country. So, when they want to blame medicine and blame that on capitalism, we have to be smart enough to say, 'We don't have capitalism. We already have socialism. Medicare is socialized medicine.' People are afraid of that because 'Oh, you'll say you're against Medicare.' No, I'm saying you have to do something different because you can't just eliminate Medicare. We have to figure out how to get more to a market based system. It's counter-intuitive to a lot of people, but you have to pay for things if you want prices to come down. So, you really need higher deductibles. And, the real answer to Medicare would be a $2000 deductible, but try selling that one in an election. But, that's the real answer is you have to pay for things, and when you do.... and you also get rid of price controls. So, you raise the deductible, you get rid of price controls and you allow more competition. And you may have to allow more competition from other parties, nurse practitioners we already have some, pharmacists, there have to be ways to allow medicine to come down."
