House Delays Employer Mandate in Obamacare

The U.S House today passed legislation supporting the President’s decision to delay implementing a portion of the Affordable Care Act. The employer mandate has been put on hold for 12 months, which brought applause from Rep. Don Young.

 

Young called the Act “one of the worst bills Congress has ever passed,” and said he was pleased “the Administration finally admitted that enforcing the employer mandate next year would put an impossible burden on businesses.”

 

We’ve previously reported that both Senators Lisa Murkowski and Mark Begich shared their support for a delay, though Sen. Begich later voted in favor of funding the mandate.
