A two-page document is all that is needed for most of those in Congress to keep their promises to their constituents. A cover page, and a page of text is what a congressman from Alabama has filed in the United States House of Representatives to repeal Obamacare.
Representative Mo Brooks, a republican from the Huntsville, AL, introduced his bill the day that President Donald Trump and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan pulled their “Obamacare-Lite” bill before a formal vote.
The bill uses just one sentence to do what should have been done from the beginning;
“Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted,” the bill states.
That’s it, folks – one sentence.
Brooks challenged his fellow lawmakers in Washington to sign the discharge petition that would bring the bill out of committee, where it otherwise could be left to die. Brooks’ bill has no co-sponsors yet.
