    How to repeal O'care

    Rep. Mo Brooks files bill to repeal Obamacare

    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    "Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted," the bill states.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.

    What? How can you repeal something without powerpoint slides? How can you repeals something without having press conferences (yes, plural) telling everybody how awesome it is? How can you repeal something without spending weeks not talking to the people you claim to be talking to, and not taking any input or suggestions from people who may think you haven't gone far enough, or even people who want to protect their favorite part(s) of what you're repealing by adding 5 more pages calling those things important?

    What're you trying to do here, govern??

    All they really had to do was take the bill they already passed when it couldn't possibly get signed and submit it now when it would definitely get signed. Except the Republicans who pretended to want to get rid of it are running it now, so they need to keep most of it around to do favors with it to the people who buy donate to their campaigns.
