    GOP to White House: ObamaCare delay for businesses unfair to everyone else

    House Republican leaders on Tuesday urged the Obama administration to grant everybody a reprieve from the ObamaCare insurance mandate, suggesting the recent decision to delay only the requirement on businesses would be unfair to everyone else.

    "We agree with you that the burden was overwhelming for employers, but we also believe American families need the same relief," House Speaker John Boehner and several other top Republicans wrote in a letter to President Obama.

    "White House spokesman Jay Carney said the administration has no intention of delaying the individual mandate."

    This President is SUCH A PUPPET to big business it is unbelievable. First he grants insurance companies exemptions to the law, along with his BIG donors, the unions. Now he is granting business a one year exemption. So how are democrates going to defend this businesses get a break but not the people.

    It is ridiculous.

    Well, my guess is that they do not want to go into an election year with massive layoffs and people's hours being cut but want the lower middle class to be politically grateful for all this wonderful health insurance before the hammer drops and they are clubbed like baby seals.

    Probably real close to being 100% correct.

    Only the low information types really think the real purpose behind Obamacare was for everyone to get health insurance to begin with. The real purpose was of course, additional government control over everyone's life.

    I'm so glad I'm independent now. What a political sideshow. On one end you have the President that's allowing businesses a year to prepare themselves for this (and in my opinion, I wouldn't give it to them.) and pro-business Boehner complaining that someone in the business world gets it easy while an individual has to begin now is going to have it rough. Ask Boehner why he was raw about extending unemployment benefits. Washington! Wow! Better entertainment than a circus!!

    The thing that is bothering me about this exemption crap going on is that Obamacare is the law, sad as it is, it is the law. The President is giving out exemptions to the law. As our nations highest law enforcement officer shouldnt he be making sure the laws are followed not picking & choosing who doesnt have to abide by the law?

    Where is this going to lead?
    What other laws can he (or any President) just choose to hand out exemptions to?

    Kind of undermines our legal system. Congress passes a bill and a President signs that bill into law...if a President (same or different) doesnt like a portion of the new law he just hands out exemptions to that law? Whats to stop him from handing out exemptions to any law?

    Isnt that an "end around" to the legal system & the law?
    Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.

    Implementation of the employer mandate has been delayed for technical reasons. No such reasons exist for delaying implementation of the individual mandate. Calling for a delay is just another attempt by the Republicans to obstruct the welfare of the American People. Worse, it's another example of the Republicans' persistent violation of their oath of office:

    “I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
    Their focus on interfering with the implementation of PPACA rather than dealing with the problems America faces clearly isn't "faithfully discharging the duties of the office." We should be calling for their arrest and prosecution rather than allowing them to further harm the American People.

    How many years will it take to fix this legislation? This country is the master of problem creation. Our congress failed us again when they were unable to put a comprehensive, intelligent plan together.

    I hope they can get it right.

    Blame the Republicans. Their obstruction and obfuscation of everything the Democrats proposed is the reason we are facing difficulties. Had they cooperated with the American People, we'd be moving on to something else. Instead, we're constantly revisiting what should be finished.
