Two Republican lawmakers have introduced a bill that would eliminate an Obamacare program that operates only in Arkansas but costs the feds $10 million annually, The Hill reported.

Sen. Ron Johnson and House Freedom Caucus chair Mark Meadows co-signed a bill that would repeal the Multi-State plan program that had become a one-state program.

"This mandate is the definition of government waste," Johnson said in a statement.

The program was designed to create competition by requiring the Office of Personnel Management to contract with two health plans in every state, with one being a nonprofit, The Hill reported.
