Representative Mo Brooks, a Republican from the 5th Congressional District in Alabama, has filed a one-sentence bill to completely repeal Obamacare.
The bill, titled the “ObamaCare Repeal Act,” simply reads:
“Effective as of December 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111–148) is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted.”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 would give Congress until the end of the year to agree on a replacement to Obamacare. If no replacement is agreed on, it would simply remain repealed, as if it never existed.
Representative Mo Brooks is a member of the House Freedom Caucus, the former Alabama State Chairman for Ted Cruz’s campaign, and was an outspoken “No” vote on the Swampcare/RINOCare bill. He also happens to be my own personal representative in Congress. I could not be more proud to reside in the 5th Congressional District than I do today. Please call your Congressman and urge them to expedite this bill through committee and vote on it as soon as possible. This is what SHOULD have been proposed the first time.
