Issa Statement on Obamacare Implementation Delay

July 3, 2013

WASHINGTON – House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., offered the following statement in response to the Obama Administration’s announcement that it would postpone for one year the requirement that businesses cover their workers under Obamacare:

“The House has repeatedly voted to repeal Obamacare because it will not work and is bad public policy. The President has delayed a critical component of the Affordable Care Act because it is absolutely unaffordable for American job creators and workers. It is unclear that he has the authority to do this without Congress. This is another in a string of extra legal actions taken by his Administration to mask the horrible impact his law will have on the economy and health care in the United States.”

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has held several hearings and last Congress issued a report outlining the harmful effects Obamacare will have on job creation and employment.
