Speaker Boehner: Republicans Want Fairness for the American People

WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) made the following remarks today, noting that the House will send the Senate yet another measure to keep the government running and ensure all Americans are treated fairly under the president’s health care law:

“We’ve spent the last hour and a half meeting with our Members. And it’s pretty clear that what our Members want is fairness for the American people. The president provided a one year delay of the employer mandate. He’s provided exceptions for unions and others. There’s even exceptions for Members of Congress.  We believe that everyone should be treated fairly. So we’re going to move here in the next several hours to take the Senate bill, add to it a one year delay of the individual mandate on the American people. And get rid of the exemption for Members of Congress. It’s a matter of fairness for all Americans.”
