House Whip who pledged to dismantle Obamacare shot

A Congressman who pledged to dismantle Obamacare was shot early this morning in Alexandria, VA at a baseball game.

Rep. Scalise, who is also the Republican House Whip, is currently in surgery.

Several others were also shot at the game and their status is unknown at this time.

An eyewitness said, “An African American gentleman was shot in the leg,” yet he still took the shooter down.

Congressman Scalise’s website says he supports a full repeal of the “unconstitutional job-killing” Obamacare law.

Scalise also supports legislation that focuses on reducing frivolous lawsuits against physicians according to the house.Gov website.

Scalise is expected to survive the shooting and make a full recovery according to CNN reports.

Currently, Congress receives a health care package that will cover the atrocities of today’s shooting leaving the Congressman with little or no out of pocket expenses.

Unfortunately, most Americans do not have access to quality health care and the repeal of the Affordable Care Act or as it’s commonly called, “Obamacare,” this leaves more Americans in limbo when it comes to the healthcare of the citizens of the United States.
