As TheBlaze reported yesterday, Representative Mo Brooks (R–AL), a favorite Congressman of Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere, introduced a new piece of legislation intended to repeal Obamacare. The unusually concise bill consists of a single sentence:
"Effective as of December 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111–148) is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted."
Essentially, Brooks' bill would give Congress until the end of the year to replace Obamacare and provide for any consequences of its repeal repeal, at which point America's health care system would revert to its pre-Obamacare structure.
Pat and Stu responded to the bill's filing Tuesday on "Pat & Stu" with jubilation. They pointed out that, unlike the Republican Party's failed health care reform bill, the American Health Care Act, no one can argue that this bill is too long or too complex to understand.
"If we had more bills like this, we wouldn't have a $20 trillion deficit or debt," Pat quipped. "This is just common sense, and there is none in Congress."
The guys questioned why even avowed conservatives in Congress would back what many alleged was a less-than-moderate GOP health care reform effort. They expressed frustration that Congressmen they've supported in the past, such as Texas Representative Ted Poe, have begun characterizing the House's conservative Freedom Caucus bloc as intransigent obstructionists.
"I knew this was going to piss you off, because you like Ted Poe," Stu admitted. "You actually bring him up as an example often of someone who seemingly was pretty conservative."
"Never again," Pat responded.
