Rep. Dave Brat said Friday the GOP can get the new health care bill done in a week.

“It’s not really a new bill,” Mr. Brat, Virginia Republican and a member of the House Freedom Caucus, said on CNN’s “New Day.” “We’re still waiting on the official text.”

Mr. Brat said that after the Republicans’ failed attempt at putting together a replacement plan for Obamacare last month, Vice President Mike Pence came together with House Republicans to work out the issues from the last bill.

“Vice President Pence came over and met with all of us. He had a great compromise. That’s what we’re working on right now is the text of what he said. And if that goes into play, we’re all at yes” Mr. Brat explained.
Mr. Brat said the bill isn’t that hard to craft the language for since it’s not all that different than the bill that failed to be voted on last month.

“*It just allows the states to opt out of some of the regs,” he said.

*”Liberals will be horrified!”

    It’s NOT rocket science like the dimocrats have brainwashed their IDIOTS into believing. Basically, cut the government cords and REGULATE it not create it like it should be.

    democrats are IDIOTS
