An Alabama congressman introduced a one-sentence bill in the House Friday to repeal ObamaCare.
Republican Rep. Mo Brooks introduced the bill as the Obamacare Repeal Act, AL.com reported.
“Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted,” the bill states.
Brooks introduced the bill after he announced he would oppose the Republican health care measure which was later pulled from a House floor vote because it did not have enough support to pass.
“If the American people want to repeal Obamacare, this is their last, best chance during the 115th Congress,” Brooks said in a statement. 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.”
The bill was not voted on and considered a symbolic jesture.
