U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Huntsville filed a bill on Friday in the U.S. House of Representatives to repeal Obamacare according to Alabama Media Group.
From their report:
“This Act may be cited as the ‘Obamacare Repeal Act,'” the bill states.
And the bill uses just one sentence to do it.
“Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted,” the bill states.
And that’s it – one sentence.
In a statement Friday announcing he would opposing the Republican health care plan that eventually was pulled from a vote because of a lack of support, Brooks said he would be introducing the bill to repeal Obamacare.
Brooks challenged his fellow lawmakers in Washington to sign the discharge petition that would bring the bill out of committee, where it could be left to die. Brooks’ bill has no co-sponsors at this point.
“If the American people want to repeal Obamacare, this is their last, best chance during the 115th Congress,” Brooks said. Those Congressmen who are sincere about repealing Obamacare may prove it by signing the discharge petition.
“At a minimum, the discharge petition will, like the sun burning away the fog, show American voters who really wants to repeal Obamacare and who merely acts that way during election time.”
Great move by Brooks! Repealing Obamacare doesn’t need to be complicated, after all government shouldn’t be in healthcare to begin with!
