Key Republican says ObamaCare mandate repeal under consideration in tax bill

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas) said Friday that lawmakers are considering repealing ObamaCare’s individual mandate as part of their tax reform bill given President Trump’s repeated demands to do so.

Brady said President Trump has told him twice by phone and once in person that he wants the mandate repealed in the tax bill. Trump has also publicly called for the idea.

Earlier in the week, Brady rejected the idea, saying it could jeopardize the tax bill.

On Friday, he said he’s worried the provision could not get through the Senate and would open up the contentious health care debate.
“There are pros and cons to this,” Brady said at an event Friday hosted by Politico. “Importing health care into a tax reform debate has consequences.”

    GOP… considering? ………..AGAIN?

    Where was this in 2017 and 2018 when the GOP held the Senate and the House?

    The cowards ignored it then and will not do a damned thing now. It’s a pre election lie.

    There is nothing contentious about Barry Care, it is a scam and a proveable fraud just like Barry himself…this was a legislative travesty by one party, the DNCommunist Jackass Party and this jackassery has to be ended…we need to return to the private sector, allow insurance across state lines and oversight insurance companies for being collusive and complicit with rate charges…The best cure for this med care joke is sunlight and real market competition……and a DNC that disappears into oblivion….
