Scalise: Latest Obamacare delay begs the question – where is the relief for American families?
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Steve Scalise today issued the following statement after yet another Obamacare delay.
“The fact that President Obama is delaying another key component of his health care law through the remainder of his Presidency confirms the devastation that Obamacare is causing throughout the nation,” Scalise said. “This latest Obamacare delay begs the question – where is the relief for American families? Hard-working taxpayers have suffered for too long under the weight of the devastating impacts of President Obama’s signature health care law. Instead of focusing on short-term patches for insurance companies and corporations, it’s time for President Obama to delay the penalties that threaten millions of Americans instead.
“Attempting to bail out some while abandoning the majority of Americans will not hide the failure of Obamacare. Laws are not made to be selectively enforced whenever the Obama Administration wants to try salvaging low poll numbers. It is time for President Obama to admit his broken health care law has failed, and join with House Republicans to suspend the penalties and stop this train wreck before more hard-working families are harmed.”
