Two Republican senators introduced a bill Wednesday that would punish states who completely scrap their state-run ObamaCare exchanges, requiring them to pay back the federal government for the money that was wasted.
The bill by Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., would apply to states who forego their own state exchange in favor of the federal marketplace.
The American people are sick and tired of writing a blank check for the health care laws complete failures, Barrasso said in a statement.
A spokesperson for Barrasso confirmed to FoxNews.com the bill so far would only apply to Oregon, which decided last month to abolish its state-run exchange and switch to the federal system after months of problems.
Several other states of the 14 running their own exchanges have encountered significant problems thus far with their exchanges, including Maryland, Hawaii, Nevada and Massachusetts, but none have completely given up yet.

So when do the American people get paid back for all the failed FEDERAL exchanges?
The states need to revolt on taxation.
States MUST strike first!
Sue the Feds for MAKING OBAMACARE IMPOSSIBLE TO IMPLEMENT!
“Two Republican senators introduced a bill Wednesday that would punish states who completely scrap their state-run ObamaCare exchanges, requiring them to pay back the federal government for the money that was wasted.”
How about these Senators repay the tax payers for the time devoted to putting this bill, which will never see the light of day in Dingy Harry’s Lair, together. Good idea though but not going to happen.
It’s just government money. It’s not like people work hard and have a percentage of their wages taken from them to pay off Democrats, or something.
Although I like the sentiment, courts would rule against it. One side can’t change a contract after the fact,
The best way to repeal bad law is to enforce it strictly.
