House to Vote on Obamacare This Week
House Republicans are set to vote to delay a portion of Obamacare which would require Americans to purchase health insurance by next year.
House Speaker John Boehner explained that the Republican-controlled chamber also will vote to delay the employer mandate because such decisions require congressional authority, then went on to say why delaying only the employer mandate is unfair.
If youre a software company making billions in profits, youre exempt from Obamacare next year, said Boehner. But if youre a 28-year-old struggling to pay off your student loans, youre not. Is it fair for the president to give American businesses an exemption from his health laws mandates without giving the same break to the rest of America?Hell no.
The House could vote as early as Wednesday on bills that attempt to delay the implementation of the individual and employer mandate, which Obama recently delayed until after the 2014 elections.
