(Worthy News) - Republican senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas said repealing the Obamacare individual mandate would save $300 billion over the next 10 years.

Cotton, along with Sen. Pat Toomey (R., Pa.), introduced a bill that would exempt Americans who earn less than the national median household income from paying the penalty for not having health insurance.

"I have a modest proposal for the soon-to-be-released tax legislation: Repeal Obamacare's individual mandate," Cotton tweeted. "Repealing individual mandates saves $300 billion over 10 years. CBO said so during health care debate last summer." [ Source: Washington Free Beacon (Read More...) ]

  1. Actually, Obama's plan was to bail out the insurance companies to the tune of $1 Trillion annually, thus driving America deeper in debt even after his escape from office. But don't worry, President Trump is going to destroy Obamacare sooner or later despite whatever the Congress does. Bamacare has been a sinking ship since it was shoved down Americans' throat by Bama's Executive Order.
