Sound Fair To You?…Dems Protect Big Business, Congress From “Train Wreck” And Leave Families Out In The Cold
NRCC | September 30, 2013
  • With the House’s vote tonight, the time for fairness has finally come.

  • A hallmark of the Obama administration has been picking winners and losers, instead of leveling the playing field and giving everyone a fair shot at quality and affordable healthcare.

  • House Republicans just passed a plan that would not only keep government open, but strip ObamaCare’s congressional exemption and give the same delay to middle-class families that the Obama administration gave to big business.

  • It’s time for Harry Reid and Senate Democrats to stop their intransigence and support this common-sense plan. Americans shouldn’t suffer under ObamaCare while big business and Congress get sweetheart deals.

The House Just Voted To Fund The Government, Delay ObamaCare’s Individual Mandate, And Cancel Insurance Subsidies For Members Of Congress And Staff. (H.J. 59, Roll Call Vote #504, 228-201, 9/30/13)

The Bill Would Delay The Individual Mandate And Cancel Insurance Subsidies For Members Of Congress And Staff. “With just hours to go until the government shuts down, House Republicans will try to pass a bill that would delay the mandate that individuals buy health insurance and would cancel health-insurance subsidies for members of Congress and staff, the president and administration appointees, according to multiple sources.” (Jake Sherman and John Bresnahan, “Government Shutdown: House GOP To Delay Individual Mandate,” Politico, 9/30/13)

The Obama Administration Delayed ObamaCare’s Employer Mandate Until 2015. “The Obama administration will delay a crucial provision of its signature health-care law, giving businesses an extra year to comply with a requirement that they provide their workers with insurance. The government will postpone enforcement of the so-called employer mandate until 2015, after the congressional elections, the administration said yesterday. Under the provision, companies with 50 or more workers face a fine of as much as $3,000 per employee if they don’t offer affordable insurance.” (Mike Dorning and Alex Wayne, “Health-Law Employer Mandate Delayed by U.S. Until 2015,” Bloomberg, 7/3/13)
