Congressman Guthrie today voted in support of two pieces of legislation seeking to delay Obamacare mandates.
"This law is a train wreck," said Congressman Guthrie. "From the very beginning it was clear that this one-size-fits-all law was the wrong approach to addressing our nation's health care woes. I still believe that repeal of this devastating law is needed, but until then we need to ensure that American families aren't punished while the Administration gives big businesses a break."
H.R. 2667, the "Authority for Mandate Delay Act" would give large employers a reprieve from compliance with the employer mandate until 2015. H.R. 2668, the "Fairness for American Families Act" would grant individuals until 2015 to comply with the law's individual mandate.
"President Obama's own Administration realized key elements of his healthcare law were not ready for primetime. If business owners aren't ready for this ill-conceived law, what makes him think families are? We need a permanent delay," added Congressman Guthrie.
