Issa Statement on ObamaCare Employer Mandate Delay

Published: Feb 10, 2014

WASHINGTON – Today, House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., released the following statement in response to the announcement that the Obama Administration is delaying ObamaCare’s employer mandate for mid-sized businesses until 2016.

“The president’s repeated delays and arbitrary enforcement of his health care law cannot distract from the facts: this law has resulted in millions of Americans losing their insurance coverage, rising health care costs, and an estimated 2.5 million jobs that will be lost from the workforce,” said Chairman Issa. “The Administration’s ad hoc implementation of ObamaCare adds significant uncertainty to the economy and further hinders small businesses from expanding and creating jobs in the long run.”
