Rep. Mo BrooksMorris (Mo) Jackson BrooksWatchdog group seeks ethics probe over McCarthy's Jan. 6 comments Jan. 6 panel seeks records of those involved in 'Stop the Steal' rally Jan. 6 panel to ask for preservation of phone records of GOP lawmakers who participated in Trump rally: report MORE (R-Ala.), a conservative member of the House Freedom Caucus, said Tuesday that he plans to file a discharge petition in an effort to force a vote on full repeal of ObamaCare.
Brooks has introduced a two-page bill to repeal the entire law, a measure that has no real path to passage given opposition from moderate Republicans and an inability to get through a filibuster in the Senate.
But Brooks says he wants to put members on record on where they stand by using the petition, which could force a vote if it gets signatures from a majority of House lawmakers.
"We will find out who is truly for repeal of ObamaCare and who is not," Brooks said.
Meanwhile, some GOP lawmakers expressed hope Tuesday at a House GOP conference meeting that repeal is not dead and they could revisit the issue.
President Trump, however, has said he is moving on to tax reform.
