It is no secret that the GOP’s failed healthcare bill wasn’t conservative enough.

It didn’t jive with what Republicans have been promising the American people for 7 years.

Now, a Republican from Alabama has finally done the right thing.

He introduced an Obamacare bill that does what the voters said they wanted and it’s only one sentence long.

From Weasel Zippers via The Blaze:

Rep Mo Brooks, a Republican from the 5th Congressional District in Alabama, has filed a bill simply titled the “Obamacare Repeal Act,” and it contains just one sentence.

The bill 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“Effective as of December 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111–148) is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted.”

No really. That’s it. You can see for yourself

“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,” he added.

Sadly, this bill has little chance of going anywhere anytime soon.

  1. Unfortunately while true, repeal is only half of what was wanted. There is no mention of replace which is also considered essential.

        • What they have always done. Go to the emergency room and obtain care without paying the bill!
          Those that work will be able to get insurance from their company.

          • So is going to the emergency room cost effective for people with colds or a splinter? Someone is going to get schtupped for the bill. I’s the cash patients or those with insurance that will be paying for a $9 aspirin to cover the bills of those who can’t pay.

        • They can figure it out and there are enough nonprofits to help the ‘truly’ needy. How about the big Libs like Gates, etc putting together a philanthropic organization? It should be my choice donate or not, it is not the Governments business to pick winners and losers and get involved in Social programs.

          • Nonprofits to care for the needy? Name them, please. Then you speak of what the libs should do? I feel that the Federal Government has no business in being an insurance provider but what do you do about Medicare? The insurance industry should be regulated (not provided) by the states. That is clearly a state’s rights issue. Not the Government’s business to get involved in Social Programs? Ok, maybe the states on their own should provide food and shelter assistance and unemployment benefits. But it should be provided to the truly needy. While I don’t want Federal control over health insurance, I think you are rather unfeeling for individuals who do not have the means when you say “They can figure it out”.

          • It is not the Goevernments, Fed, State, whatever, place to tax me to pay for the welfare of any other individual. If I choose to donate to a worthy cause, I get to choose the causes I deem worthy, then I can do so. You can think of me however you please.

          • First of all, I can agree that the Federal Government has no Constitutional right to tax you for the welfare of individuals (national defense is another matter) but anything not specifically delegated to the national government or expressly prohibited to the states are state matters. So by an act of omission, the states can provide for welfare on your dime.

    • Actually, @disqus_eV2ZiGgsVm:disqus, self-determination is considered essential. It’s the process by which a person controls their own life.

    • Government has NO place in the healthcare industry.

      It is a FALSE doctrine that the government needs to be involved in the healthcare industry.

      NO replacement is needed.

  2. This is what the republicans really want. And I think it is a good first step a clean start. Then the people can work to get what they need one law at a time. For the record I don’t want a system that lets the rich live into their 100s and the poor to die in their forties.

  3. LOUIS ZAKAR, ARE SOME REPUBLICANS HOOK ON AND TO OBAMACARE, POLITICALLY LIKE CRACK COCAINE??? OBAMACARE SHOULD BE COMPLETELY REPEALED FOR GOOD.

  4. Just reduce to non-compliance penalty to 0.5% of AGI and the aca nightmare will be over. Super simple! The government can use the 0.5% to provide basic healthcare for the indigent.

  5. I hope that the next healthcare bill states that all members of congress and other government officials must be on it. Only then will they try to get it right.

    • Because of all the subsidies that have been given out that lasts until the end of the year and to give a bit of time to come up with the replace part of “repeal and replace”. JMHO
