U.S. Rep. Brooks files two-page bill to repeal Obamacare

Will anyone else sign on to this simple Obamacare fix?

(NationalSentinel) Healthcare Reform: It doesn’t happen much, but very often the best way to get something done in the nation’s capital is the simplest way.

Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., has filed a two-page bill to repeal Obamacare, AL.com  reports, and the meat of it is a single sentence:

“Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted,” the bill states.

It just doesn’t get any simpler than that: Repeal the Obamacare mess in its entirety and restore the laws and statutes in effect before President Obama signed his namesake legislation seven years ago this month.

AL.com noted further:

Another bill signed into law by former President Barack Obama – the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 – would also be repealed under Brooks’ bill. The health care aspect of the law is also considered a part of Obamacare.

Brooks has challenged his Republican colleagues to get on board by signing a discharge petition that brings his bill out of committee, where it will otherwise die.

If the American people want to repeal Obamacare, this is their last, best chance during the 115th Congress,” Brooks said.”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.”

We think we know the answer: So far, no one has co-sponsored Brooks’ bill.
