House Passes Bills to Delay Obamacare Mandates

andrew-mangioneby Andrew Mangione –

Yesterday, the House of Representatives passed two notable bills – H.R. 2667 and H.R. 2668 – delaying implementation of ObamaCare’s individual and employer mandates for one year. AMAC is pleased with the House’s bipartisan effort to delay these cumbersome mandates, as they pose a great threat to consumer choice and significantly endanger the economic strength of our country. Still, short of full repeal of ObamaCare, Americans will not be able to evade the devastating impacts this law will have on their families and businesses. The Obama administration’s decision to delay the employer mandate clearly illustrates the fact that ObamaCare is too complicated and costly to be realistically implemented and enforced. Saddling hard-working Americans with rising premiums and higher taxes promises to exacerbate an economy struggling to create jobs and generate growth. Like many in Congress, AMAC ardently believes that real health care reform – that lowers costs and protects the physician-patient relationship – can only begin once this deeply-flawed law is repealed.



Gingrey acts to protect taxpayers, job creators from Obamacare mandates –

Dr. Phil Gingrey today voted to delay key Obamacare requirements, safeguarding against substantial cost increases that threaten job creation nationwide. Postponing the employer and individual mandates staves off an enormous blow to our sluggish economy and families struggling to make ends meet.

“Though the Obama administration delayed the job-killing employer mandate, they left the rest of America on the hook for a massive tax hike,” Gingrey said. “Instead of picking winners and losers, House Republicans acted to protect all Americans and job creators from the devastating effects of the law. Our work is far from over, however. Providing relief for taxpayers by delaying these costly mandates for one year is not enough, and I will continue fighting to dismantle every single piece of this ‘train wreck’ of a law. Repealing Obamacare in its entirety is paramount to enacting health care reform that truly lowers costs, increases patient access, and protects quality of care.”

The fact that anyone with any common sense thought this mess could work is remarkable. !. It dictates and limits how much doctors can charge for their services, therefore, 48% of existing doctors say they have worked long enough and have enough money that they will simply hang up their stethoscopes and retire. 2. The plan intends to cover 30 million (?) people who are currently uninsured.

Add 30 million people and subtract almost 50% of the doctors and tell me how it can EVER work. Oh, and put the IRS in charge of it. The icing on the cake!

We need to get rid of Obamacare it will cost jobs, increase all insurances and is bad all around, we have the best health care in the world no one is turned away. How on earth can the system take on 2 to 3 million more people and not cause damage to our health system, there will be not be enough doctors to handle the over load of people. This is insane that they ( the Democrats) do not think this is going to cause great havoc in our society. America was consider a great nation, not any more. We will be like all the others a socialistic country. Now that is truly SAD.!!!!!

Another great attempt by some members of the House to at least delay the train wreck that is Obamacare. However, without strong support from the Republican leadership in the Senate, these two bills will simply join the growing list of House legislation that Harry Reid refuses to bring up for a floor vote in the Senate.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
