Moran on House Passage of bills to delay ACA

Today, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) released the following statement on the passage of the U.S. House of Screen Shot 2013-07-17 at 8.30.00 PMRepresentatives bills to delay the Affordable Care Act (ACA) employer and individual mandates:

“After Senate Democrats ignored this issue, the House acted to protect American individuals, families and businesses from the cost and complication of the Affordable Care Act. Even President Obama has acted to temporarily spare small-businesses from the swarm of regulations, taxes, and headaches that accompany compliance with this misguided law.

“The House’s actions are a step in the right direction, but we’re not out of the woods yet. The problem continues to be the entire Affordable Care Act. President Obama and Senate Democrats ought to reconsider delaying the ‘individual mandate’ and stop forcing Americans to pay the price of ObamaCare-driven dysfunction.”
