Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) released the following statement after the Obama administration yesterday announced it would delay enforcement of Obamacare's employer mandate until January 1, 2015:
"Obamacare's oppressive and inflexible employer mandate has already impacted job growth and will ultimately put 3.2 million jobs at risk. Unfortunately, simply delaying enforcement of the mandate does not change that. Nor does it provide relief for individuals who will see their premiums skyrocket. Instead of delaying the inevitable -- at significant cost to the taxpayer -- the administration should offer permanent relief from the so-called "Affordable Care Act' and repeal it in its entirety before any more damage is done to our health care system and to our economy."
