Blackburn to Sponsor Delay of Obamacare as Part of House Republican Plan to Keep the Government Funded

Statement

When the House of Representatives considers the Continuing Resolution to keep the government funded later this afternoon, Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) will offer an amendment to delay Obamacare for one year.

Congressman Blackburn has been leading the fight in Congress to delay President Obama's health care law and is the sponsor of H.R. 2809 to delay all Obamacare provisions and taxes for one year. H.R. 2809 has 130 cosponsors. This is an approach supported by 18 Free Market Groups that comprise the Obamacare Repeal Coalition.

"Through everything we have heard from businesses and families during our meetings with constituents and Congressional oversight it is clear that the President's health care law isn't ready for primetime. In fairness to hard-working taxpayers the best thing we can do right now is to implement a one year delay so we can continue to chip away at this disastrous law.

"As we continue our fight to fully repeal Obamacare and replace it with patient-centered solutions, I encourage my colleagues in the House to join me supporting this necessary next step by delaying Obamacare in order to protect American families from its harmful effects."
