Details are emerging of a new plan to reform the American health care system being worked on by the Trump Administration with members of Congress. One of the key features of the new plan would be that the states would have the option to ask the federal government for waivers to exempt them from mandates established under Obamacare. TheBlaze radio host, Doc Thompson was incredulous at this latest development.

"That's one of the biggest flaws of Obamacare is that it's the federal government controlling what you can and can't do, as an insurer or as somebody buying insurance," Thompson emphasized.

Doc wondered what it was that Republicans found so difficult about simply repealing the health care law they claim to find so odious.

"How about you go into Congress today and you say, 'Hey, you remember all those Repeals that we voted for in the House? Maybe we could just pull one of those out of the drawer and we just vote on that and then you send it over to the Senate and you get it passed there and then it goes to the desk of the White House,' and hey! Obamacare is repealed!"

Doc helpfully offered to send his copy of Schoolhouse Rock to Congress in case they needed a refresher on how a bill becomes a law.
