The Obamacare Train Wreck

Floor Speech

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Mr. BOEHNER. Mr. Speaker, my colleagues, building a stronger economy for all Americans is our top priority here in the House. That's why we're working to simplify the Tax Code, expand energy production, and hold the administration accountable for abuses at agencies like the IRS. It's why, while Senate Democrats have done nothing, the House has passed a bipartisan plan to make college more affordable. And it's why we'll vote tomorrow to make sure that families and individuals get the same break from ObamaCare that the President wants for big businesses.

Over the weekend, the Democratic leader in the Senate said the President's health care law ``has been wonderful'' for our country. Are you kidding me? If ObamaCare is so wonderful, why are health care prices exploding? Why are millions of Americans getting kicked out of their plans? Why are so many workers losing their jobs or getting their hours cut?

The law isn't wonderful. It's a train wreck. You know it, I know it, and the American people know it. Even the President knows it. That's why he proposed delaying his mandate on employers.

But it's unfair to protect big businesses without giving the same relief to American families and small businesses. The bills by Congressman Tim Griffin and Todd Young will address this problem by delaying both the employer mandate and the individual mandate. I hope Democrats and Republicans alike will vote to do what's fair and protect all Americans from this disastrous law.
