Upton Comments on Obamacare’s Employer Mandate

July 2, 2013

WASHINGTON, DC – House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) issued the following statement regarding the administration’s decision to delay Obamacare’s employer mandate for one year:

"For the last three years, the law has been plagued by broken promises, projected cost increases, delays, and missed deadlines. The administration's sudden turnabout is a clear admission that its signature law is bad for business and bad for jobs.  We have all heard the warnings, and a one-year delay does nothing to fix the law's fundamental flaws. This law will never be ready for prime time and sadly, the administration's acknowledgement that it still needs yet another year clearly disrupts everyone's ability to determine what is best for them and their business."
