GOP rep: Health bill 'one of the worst' I've seen

"The enemy of my enemy...

Source: The Hill, by Mark Hensh

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) says the House GOP’s bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare "is one of the worst bills" he's seen in his entire career.

“It is one of the worst bills I have seen in my 30 years as a county commissioner, legislator, district attorney and now congressman,” Brooks said Friday on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”

The House Freedom Caucus member, who came out against the American Health Care Act (AHCA) on Tuesday, told CNBC he's "not going to surrender on an issue as important as ObamaCare." Far from rolling back ObamaCare, he said, the legislation lets government and welfare programs balloon.

“You’ve also got a bill that is the largest welfare program ever proposed in the history of the Republican Party,” he said.

1. Of course, the reason he opposes it is that it isn't cruel enough.

Still, it needs to crash and burn.
