H. R. 2:

   To repeal the job-killing health care law and health care-related
provisions in the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010.
   Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the
United States of America in Congress assembled,
    This Act may be cited as the ``Repealing the Job-Killing Health
Care Law Act''.
              RECONCILIATION ACT OF 2010.
    (a) Job-Killing Health Care Law.--Effective as of the enactment of
Public Law 111-148, such Act is repealed, and the provisions of law
amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act
had not been enacted.

  1st Session

                                H. R. 2


                                 AN ACT

   To repeal the job-killing health care law and health care-related 
provisions in the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010.

This has got to be one of the most childish pieces of legislation I have ever seen. The title alone is antagonistically pejorative. It lacks the usual preamble of reasons and justifications, especially for legislation this far-reaching.

Most importantly, it lacks any sign of concern for, or even awareness of, the consequences of implementing this bill as a law. A responsible bill would have analyzed the portions of the law it seeks to repeal and provided instructions on how to unwind them.

I wonder where they got the idea that they could make a law retroactive?

In short, nobody did their homework, or due diligence, on this one.

The very low quality of work on this bill clearly indicates that it is a deeply partisan message, and was never approached as serious legislation or work in support of the people’s business.

There are not yet I have not yet seen any corresponding Senate bills online.
