House Attacks White House Over Delaying Obamacare For Businesses – But Not People
GOP leaders in the House of Representatives are calling on President Barack Obama to grant the American people the same one-year reprieve from mandatory state-managed health care that the White House recently announced it would be granting to businesses.
House Republican Leader Eric Cantor said he “never thought I’d see the day when the White House; the president, came down on the side of big business but left the American people out in the cold as far as this health care mandate is concerned.”
Other Republicans predicted the business-only delay would shift the cost of Obamacare’s first year of subsidized health care from companies to individuals.
House speaker John Boehner and Republican colleagues wrote Obama, pressing him to let individuals in on delaying the much-dreaded implementation of a wealth-redistributing health care law that critics say is too byzantine to ever succeed.
“We agree with you that the burden was overwhelming for employers, but we also believe American families need the same relief,” the GOP coalition remarked.
Ben Bullard Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.
