Capito: President Obama Sees the Writing on the Wall for His Health Care Law

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito (WV-02) released the following statement in response to President Obama’s announcement that he will delay the employer health care mandate until 2015.
 
“President Obama’s decision to push the confusing and job-killing employer mandate past the 2014 election is proof-positive that he sees the writing on the wall for his health care law.  His politically motivated decision is a clear sign that he understands how damaging Obamacare will be for those who voted for the legislation.  Obamacare is already increasing costs for families across the country and it is forcing businesses to question their future.  I have heard from many businesses in West Virginia who fear that they will have to lay off workers and cut hours, or even worse, close their doors.  While I am glad we will not suffer from this mandate next year, it is important that we permanently repeal Obamacare.”
