Repeal Obamacare bill introduced by Michele Bachmann - First of 113th Congress

Repeal Obamacare bill introduced by Michele Bachmann - First of 113th Congress By Terri Schwartz | January 4, 2013 9:35 AM ET The first day of the 113th Congress has arrived, and unsurprisingly a repeal Obamacare bill was the first item to hit the floor. Even more unsurprising: Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) was the one to introduce it. "At noon today, I introduced the first bill of the 113th Congress to repeal Obamacare in its entirety," she tweeted proudly on Jan. 3. Despite Bachmann's continued efforts, it seems as though the nation has come to accept the Obamacare initiative. A Kaiser Family Foundation Poll released after President Barack Obama was elected for his second term shows that only a third of the country wants to repeal Obamacare, which is reportedly a record low. This isn't the first time Congress has tried to pass a repeal Obamacare bill. In 2012, the Senate attempted to get rid of the new health care program 33 times, and failed in each one. CBS News reported in July that the Republican repeal effort took up 80 hours total (the equivalent of two work weeks) and cost about $48 million.
