Mr. GUTHRIE. Mr. Speaker, just last week the administration chose to delay implementation of the employer mandate by 1 year. While this delay grants business owners more time to determine their options, it is not the repeal that we need.
The House majority leadership sent a letter to President Obama today asking him to explain what prompted a delay in the employer mandate. The American people--families like yours and mine--are left wondering what led to this decision and why the individual mandate, which will be just as costly, remains in place. I join my colleagues in requesting this vital information.
The requirements of the health care law have always left more questions than answers. I continue to hear from Kentuckians who wonder if they will lose their coverage, be forced to choose different providers, or be saddled with enormous new costs. ObamaCare continues to be the train wreck that will destroy jobs, and we have to stop it.
