Sen. Hatch had a conference call on Monday on two bills that he’s introduced in the Senate (the American Job Protection Act and the American Liberty Restoration Act) to remove, respectively, the employer mandate and the individual mandate from Obamacare. Below is my portion of the Q&A period:
To summarize: I asked how we were going to get these bills passed in the 111th Congress, and Senator Hatch was forthright in replying that he doesn’t expect that we will. But it’s still very important that we keep the Democrats’ feet to the fire, particularly since we will be in a better position in the 112th Congress to gut Obamacare; so let that be a motivator.
Indeed. Let it.
