New reaction to the Obama administration's decision to delay part of the president's health care law the requirement that many businesses provide insurance for.
Workers or pay a fine.
That has been postponed until 2015.
So they getting a pass for a year.
Lot of employers are happy about that Virginia congressman Bob good late.
-- good lad is also applauding the decision saying he thinks the more the public learns about the -- and its consequences the more they'll wanna see it not only delayed but repeal.
I talk about that -- Alan Holmes he is host the Alan Colmes show Mike Gallagher is here syndicated radio host Fox News contributor.
-- good to -- -- -- we talked about in a potential repeal and so whether it's been tried before.
-- -- the president is all about.
Fairness fair share all of that -- -- -- like your sarcastic when things that -- in the media helicopters and sarcastic I think that's what makes you think cell.
-- how is it fair that large businesses are gonna get a pass for a year.
And small businesses and individuals do not as an optional -- is having a.
Harder time given the fact fifty employees or less which is a cut off point.
And they don't have the kind of profit margins large businesses do so.
Then this is something like this is a -- for the business community including the US chamber of commerce.
Has applauded this I think Republicans -- normally -- normally are in sync weathered that yes because two of the disparity between what large businesses as small businesses actually.
Do in terms of where their profit -- -- that's why furthermore and I would think conservatives to be in sync -- this casino only sync with the business community which is applauding.
Few minutes ago I put up on the screen section 1513 and -- health care affordable health care act which is going to be renamed the unaffordable health care by the I'm Blake and you know it's mandatory language the president does not have the authority to do this -- -- -- -- two aspects to this first of all there's just the -- optics of the of the disaster.
From the Obama administration's perspective but they're doing this first of all the make the announcement or during -- holiday week hoping perhaps that no one will notice.
Second of all this is Umpqua craven political act to wait until after the mid term election -- you raised something earlier to -- today Greg it's crucial.
I mean that this is by mandate that the idea that executive Fiat will supersede.
The provision that says that this has got to be implemented by next year just shows one more example of this guy who thinks he's utterly.
Above the law there's no rule of holes apparently intelligent we're certainly well I hope they will they cut out of -- -- -- -- -- -- -- transparency as you mentioned.
That unity that Obama has been all about transparency.
This is shot -- craven crass political move and to say that we're gonna wait by executive Fiat.
I the American people I hope for paying attention -- -- got to witness isn't it pretty well.
And I have reason it is being delayed because of the conservative challenges to this the attempt.
On the part of the right to stop this implementation of this law that is held up the progress had been made -- -- -- with a Wall Street Journal reported all of the Washington Post reported what's really conservative.
Hard to hold up this law what's the -- -- lawsuits.
That has held up.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Pulls up on the screen -- I mean -- -- -- was there were many backroom deals it wasn't transparent did to begin with you know.
And now you've got this delay that was secretive as well is there any wonder why it is so on -- -- that 58%.
Almost 60% of Americans want to repeal obamacare 66%.
Say it makes them feel worried about their health care future -- Greg it it it it should be very telling -- with my friend -- acknowledge acknowledges that the business community is against us.
That I mean how can anybody with an ounce of common sense applaud.
And an -- an initiative that is the centerpiece of Obama's presidency to be sure.
That's going to break the backs of businesses all over this -- what's bad for business cannot be good -- for the in my business -- Alan we're warning that they were gonna start firing people they're gonna turn full time in a part time I think a lot of I was they were gonna cut back on wages because your your employee participation in -- ingredient used -- -- -- excuse a cut back on which doesn't like that.
-- have a a dire economic and if I could just respond to those polls by the way among those who are against the implementation of the Affordable Care Act or number of progressives like myself would like to see single -- were more progressive.
Kind of health care plan so would you say 58% are against it not all of those are against it from the right.
There -- some from the left who don't want to see what else implement if you acknowledge that the business community and -- is against obamacare.
How can obamacare be good for the economic conditions in this country because it is good for the average person who was not a corporate CEO was not the owner of a business what -- I think there's -- -- -- important fact as this is implemented and is more during the next hundred days.
Of this becomes part of the American culture more -- is going to be for this bill.
As they -- you can make that argument -- -- loses his job or loses his worker hours got a bad security people are not in that category and number people who are not covered and you see themselves now covered.
By health care plan when they had no insurance within attended this album more American either more than a million people who end up jobless be more people -- going to be -- by the allergic to see -- mass.
Positive on this there are people -- our business owners of every size who were mortified that this is coming down the pike and that's very telling.
This is going to get repealed and this this this really Hank is absolutely try 37 times might well guess what they'll start 37 times revenue for the repeal the Obama administration -- -- -- and I how good look at surrender well good -- That's why I gotta I gotta throw in the red towel to stop here Alan Colmes Mike Goddard guys good to see -- -- to do thanks so much Jamie.
