House Attacks White House Over Delaying Obamacare For Businesses – But Not People

July 9, 2013 by  

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.

    I agree with postponed health insurance like businesses

  • Doug Younts

    There is no way this is right. If they try this there should be a MASSIVE MARCH on Washington. It’s as stupid as our government wanting to opt out of NObama care. Actually,we’re long over due for that Massive March

    I can’t believe that the executive branch
    Was given the power to cancel laws at will. What’s next canceling property rights or maybe just cancel all state constitutions and make everyone live in DC. Next he will cancel religion just for a few years

    The law was delayed ,besides the House would protest Obama using their rest room. That’s how stupid and petty they are.

      I apologize that comment was not directed at you. It was meant to be directed at Congress. I put the word “you ” instead of them.

    This just shows once again how financially burdensone and bad Obamacare is. Their own deadlines had to be delayed. So why should one group of people have a respite why others do not? This means that less people will have to shoulder the cost. I find this to be unfair and discriminatory and downright UnAmerican. The vast majority of people in this country do not favor this law, or the increase in the amount of taxes that they are now expected to pay. Or the fact that if they can’t afford to have health insurance they will be penalized by IRS. And finally that our healthcare will be overseen by IRS, a system that most recently has been characterized as biased and spending inappropriately.
