The north state's Rep. Doug LaMalfa voted for the resolutions authorizing the delay in Obamacare's employer and individual mandates, which passed the House by margins of 264-161 and 251-174, respectively.
“Three years later, Americans are beginning to see the devastating effects of the President’s health care takeover," the congressman said. "While the recent announcement by the Obama administration delaying the employer mandate finally recognizes the many burdens this law places on job creators and business, it is past time this law should be permanently delayed to protect hardworking Americans from the harmful consequences of this law. Americans expect and deserve access to affordable, quality health care that addresses their needs, not a law full of broken promises and higher costs. I am proud to join my colleagues in the House to pass these two fair and responsible bills to ensure all Americans receive the same relief that was given to labor unions and businesses.”
