Isakson Statement on Further Obamacare Delay
‘Every single American should be exempted from this monstrosity’
U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., today made the following statement in response to the Obama Administration’s latest delay of Obamacare.
“The administration’s further delay of Obamacare is further proof that this terrible law needs to be repealed and replaced. It is simply wrong and unfair to continue to allow Obamacare to inflict pain on individual Americans who are seeing their plans canceled, seeing their premiums spike and losing their doctors. Every single American should be exempted from this monstrosity.”
On Monday, the Obama administration issued a second round of delays to the employer mandate in Obamacare. The Treasury Department said businesses with fewer than 100 workers now will be allowed to wait until 2016 to meet the requirement of covering their workers or facing a fine.
