After years of delays, it appears that congress is finally going to put a stop to Obamacare.
On Tuesday, The Hill reported that Senate Republicans have introduced legislation that would effectively end Obamacare, and it would only need 51 votes to get passed. Unfortunately, Obama will definitely veto the bill, but we’re happy to see that congress is FINALLY fighting back.
“The Senate is now considering the House-passed Restoring America’s Health Care Freedom Reconciliation Act of 2015,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, according to Conservative Tribune. “We finally have a chance to end ObamaCare’s cycle of broken promises and failures with a simple majority vote. I look forward to completing action on the bill this week.”
The bill will also defund Planned Parenthood, a decision that has made the bill controversial among Democrats and moderate Republicans. Some are concerned that tying Planned Parenthood to Obamacare is a bad idea, but that won’t stop the bill from moving forward.
“(This) has been a long time in coming, and we’re going to send the president legislation that would repeal this bad law,” Sen. John Thune said.
The House has voted to destroy Obamacare multiple times, but the bills have always died in the Senate. We’re glad to see the Senate finally make moves to end the horrid practice of Obamacare.
