Lawmakers returned to Washington and wasted no time getting to work on the repeal of Obamacare.

Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., introduced a resolution just hours after the new Congress convened Tuesday that will serve as the vehicle for repealing much of the president’s signature health care law.

“Today, we take the first steps to repair the nation’s broken health care system, removing Washington from the equation and putting control back where it belongs: with patients, their families, and their doctors,” Enzi, chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, said in a press release posted on his website Tuesday.

It’s the first step in Republican lawmakers’ plan to fulfill their most ardent campaign
