Rep. Mo Brooks files bill to repeal Obamacare

“Do you see what is happening to the Republican party nationally and on a state level? Pay close attention as the real conservatives are very few and far between. It is difficult to relate with a party of higher taxes and bigger government. How do we explain “Republicans voting to give illegals in state tuition at the cost of the tax payers? How do we explain the same Senators failing to protect the privacy in the bathrooms of our schools for the children? RINOS!”


With a simple two-page document, an Alabama congressman has filed a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives to repeal Obamacare.

Or, as it is stated in the bill, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Huntsville, introduced the bill Friday.

“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“Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted,” the bill states.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 on Friday announcing he would oppose the Republican health care plan, which was eventually pulled from a vote because of a lack of support, Brooks said he had plans to introduce 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 otherwise 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.”
