After all, Republicans didn’t vow to replace it, they vowed to repeal it:
In 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“Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted,” the bill states.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.
Needless to say, the cuckservatives and moderates are probably far too stupid to get behind it. But it would certainly be a slick move by the God-Emperor if he did.
The core problem with Republicans is that they feel the need to posture and affect “responsibility”. But they didn’t pass Obamacare. They’re not responsible for it. So, kill it as cleanly and completely as possible, without worrying about the inevitable repercussions. Deal with them as they come, don’t try to anticipate and pre-manage them, and in doing so, fail to accomplish the primary objective.
