Last Friday, Congressman Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), moved to repeal Obamacare effective December 31st, 2017. Brooks filed the one sentence bill after he announced he would oppose the Republican health care measure. He joined Dana Loesch on “Dana” to discuss his and other bills that have been put forward as viable, simple options for repealing Obamacare.
“The bill that I have does have a grace period, December 31st, 2017. There’s another one by Representative Steve King out of Iowa that has a 12 month grace period from the date that the bill passes,” Brooks said.
The congressman went on to emphasize that this is what Republicans ran on and that they need to make good on their promise to the American people.
“I was sent to Congress, and I believe that the other 434 Congressman were sent to Congress, not counting the Senators, not to be potted plants. Not to take dictates and orders from anybody but that we’re supposed to analyze the public policy issues that are presented to us, the bills that are before us, and make an educated decision, as best we can on what’s in the best interest of the United States of America,” Brooks stated.
