Graves, Broun & Westmoreland Sponsor Bill To Defund ObamaCare

On the opening day of the 112th Congress, three Georgia Congressmen (led by 9th district Republican Tom Graves) sponsored legislation to "deauthorize appropriations for President Obama’s health care law, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010."

The bill's author, Tom Graves, says he introduced House Resolution 127 "in the spirit of the voters’ rejection of intrusive and overreaching government policies."

"Under my proposal, not a single provision within the health care law would get a penny of funding, which would effectively end the costly and unconstitutional mandate on America," Graves said.

Two other Georgia lawmakers, United States Representatives Paul Broun and Lynn Westmoreland, co-sponsored H.R. 127 the same day it was introduced.
