GOP Reps.: Our Bill Repeals Obamacare and Reduces Federal Deficit

Two Republican lawmakers are touting a new healthcare bill that they say not only repeals Obamacare, but has the added benefit of reducing the federal deficit.

Texas Rep. Bill Flores and Georgia Rep. Austin Scott, the architects of the American Health Care Reform Act, outlined details of the legislation at a breakfast meeting, the Independent Journal Review reports.

“At the end of the day, the deficit, the fiscal situation of the federal government should improve with our aspirations and vision of what health care reform looks like,” Flores told the Review afterward.

“I think, you know, we haven’t had a [Congressional Budget Office] score but my gut tells me as a person who spent over three decades in world of business that the deficit should improve.”
