The President announced that his Administration plans to ignore Obamacare's employer mandate for one year, exempting businesses only from its harmful side-effects.
The White House scrambling is to be expected. Obamacare is a bad law.
But it's a bad law the President asked for. And it's a bad law he, as mastermind and chief enforcer, must obey...unless Congress authorizes a change.
It's no secret to anyone that House Republicans see Obamacare for the broken law it is. We don't want any American to suffer under its weight.
We've voted nearly forty times to delay, dismantle or repeal the law and we will vote again to delay the implementation of Obamacare's onerous employer mandate today.
But we aren't stopping there. If businesses are getting a break from the President's law, individual Americans should too.
Attempting to justify selective enforcement is beyond rationality.
Delaying the individual mandate tax is a matter of basic fairness.
