Is it fair for the president to shield American businesses from his health care law while leaving the rest of America on the hook for his train wreck? “Hell no it isn’t.” But that’s not the only thing that’s unfair about this train wreck of a law:
- It’s NOT FAIR to force Americans to buy insurance with “all sorts of add-ons they might not need,” causing premiums to skyrocket and costing hardworking families like those in Ohio hundreds more per month.
- It’s NOT FAIR that millions could lose their health insurances plans this fall, despite the president’s repeated promise that if you like your health care plan you can keep it.
- It’s NOT FAIR to give businesses a pass while saddling the rest of America with an individual mandate they don’t support and a law that’s more unpopular than ever.
- It’s NOT FAIR that help “came too late” for thousands of employees whose hours have already been cut or jobs “phased out” by the employer mandate.
- It’s NOT FAIR to leave taxpayer dollars “wide open to fraud and abuse” by abandoning eligibility verification requirements for insurance subsidies, potentially allowing “millions of people” to receive tax credits “who don’t legally qualify.”
- It’s NOT FAIR for the health care law to give “unprecedented new access and powers to bureaucrats at the IRS,” an agency that has already admitted to unfairly targeting the president’s political opponents and blundered again this week by exposing “the Social Security numbers of tens of thousands of individuals online.”
- It’s NOT FAIR for the administration and congressional Democrats to know “for months” that ObamaCare’s implementation wouldn’t work, while repeatedly assuring Americans things were “on track” and looking just “fabulous.”
House Republicans have been hammering the White House for giving a break to big businesses while leaving individuals and families on the hook for ObamaCare, sending a letter to the president earlier this week demanding answers. The American people don’t just deserve to know why employers get a pass when they “aren't being cut the same slack,” they deserve the same protection from the law’s devastating consequences.
That’s why the House will vote next week to delay both the employer mandate and the individual mandate. Learn more about Rep. Tim Griffin (R-AR) and Rep. Todd Young’s (R-IN) bills to delay these mandates here, and weigh in with your thoughts in the comments section below, or by using the #FairnessForAll hashtag on Twitter.
