AFP-Connecticut Supports ObamaCare Provision Delays
Americans for Prosperity-CT is expressing support today for two bills that would delay implementation of two provisions of the Obamacare health care law for one year. The Authority for Mandate Delay Act (H.R. 2667) would delay the mandate for employers and the Fairness for American Families Act (H.R. 2668) would delay the mandate for individuals. Both are expected to be voted on in the U.S. House tomorrow.
“We continue our call for the full repeal of this intrusive, onerous government healthcare take-over but believe that these bills which will delay two of the more costly provisions of Obamacare are a step in the right direction,” said JR Romano, AFP-CT state director. “We urge the members of the CT delegation to think of the businesses and hard-working families of this state and support these bills.”
AFP-CT pointed out that while the individual mandate presents multiple problems and will place an unfair burden upon middle-income individuals and families who continue to struggle in this economy, supporters of delaying the employer mandate include the Obama Administration itself.
“The employer mandate is so bad for business and for country that even the Obama Administration has called for it to be delayed,” added Romano. “Delays will only defer the disadvantages for so long. We need full repeal of Obamacare before it wreaks havoc on our economy.”
