Rubio Proposes Plan to Do Away with Obamacare

Ad Feedback

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., told CBN News he has a plan to get rid of Obamacare.

It would involve passing a constitutional amendment that would ban any law that taxes Americans who don't buy a good or service - something the new healthcare law does.
"Under the ruling the Supreme Court had, if tomorrow the federal government decided every American must have a Smart Phone and if you don't, we're going to tax you for not having a Smart Phone," Rubio told CBN News's David Brody.

"They could do that under the logic of this ruling," he said. "So obviously healthcare is a much bigger issue."

"So we are basically filing a constitutional amendment, which says that you can't do that," he explained. "The government cannot compel Americans to buy a service or a good by punishing them for not doing it."

Rubio's proposal is called the "Right to Refuse" amendment. He believes it will gain support when Americans start to realize how detrimental Obamacare is.

***CBN News will have more of Brody's interview with Rubio Tuesday on "The 700 Club." The Florida lawmaker will explain in depth his efforts to lead the way on immigration reform.
