WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Metropolitian Protection and Supervillain Offence Act, signed into law a year ago, has been repealed by all Republicans.
The law, which would offer aid and protection in case any major urban area were to come under attack by super-powered enemies of the state, was deemed 'big government intervening' by the GOP.
"It is not up to the administration," said a GOP spokesman, "to safeguard the public. Each individual citizen must choose how they can protect themselves from a crazed scientist wanting to take over Chicago, or a feral genius from destroying Austin."
Repealing of MPASOA has been the main platform from which the GOP have launched their 2010 campaign from. During the mid-terms, senators declared that protecting metropolises from imminent danger from superhuman terrorists was an interference in the daily lives of Americans.
Some Republicans are saying that the clause stating installation of anti-toxic shielding for cities is infringement on personal liberty, the clause that all injured citizens will receive post-attack care is against consumer choice, and the clause that states that in a wost-case scenario, a mass evacuation of dense population centres to secure locations is sheer Communism.
Some experts say that the loss of the bill will cost the state $100 trillion in human loss, infrastructure repairs and other things, and state that the very-long term benefits outweigh the original cost of MPASOA.
The Republicans are also angry at the fact that certain industries will gain from the bill, such as healthcare and pharmaceuticals, vehicle manufacturers, and not farmers or oil barons in Texas.
"I am willing to work with the other side," said Obama, "but, seriously. If we don't pass this bill now, that flying guy in the green suit outside the window will hold us hostage."
