Until after the 2014.
Mid term elections but lawmakers point to this section.
All of the law 1513.
The amendments made by this section shall.
Apply to months beginning after December 31.
Texas congressman seven Brady joins us now nice chair of the house ways and means subcommittee.
Who on health that is conducting today's hearing.
And thank you for taking a few moments before they carrier the letter of the law he is the president it would seem and we just put it on the screen.
No discretion the word shall.
Is mandatory is the president violating.
The law he signed.
We you know my guess is he is and and what they're doing is a reverse engineered it you know they delayed the reporting requirements -- that no look.
I guess we can force is part of the law but I think the legality of this.
What ultimately be sorted out the key issue in front of us is the fairness.
Postponing this major mandate on businesses but not postponing it on families and individuals plus.
You know the problems of obamacare on our local businesses.
Didn't go away got postponed a year but they're still -- -- I'm still cutting workers -- so there's some real key issues in front of us.
Well if -- is -- -- and disadvantage -- to individuals as well as small businesses will you together with.
Speaker Boehner moved to delay.
All of the mandates in Obama -- we -- Well exactly ride and I think that's this hearing ladies I think the foundation for doing exactly right in -- really.
You know on the key questions if you you know -- local business you deal with this but if your family you've got to still Talbots -- you've got to parent that seal.
-- obamacare isn't ready for businesses.
Is -- ready for my fame money and answer is no what we know now.
This is a major embarrassing failure to have another key component right -- care.
Put in place but it's really an indictment.
On the complex the of this whole government -- -- Well -- Wall Street Journal today is reporting that the president delayed the business mandate for the following two reasons and we'll put this on the screen.
The federal government had not written key rules guiding employers.
And computer systems that we're supposed to run the program.
Were not operational.
Sir they had three years to do it in your judgment is this an administration.
At least in terms of this health care law.
Is incompetent and that whole message said that.
We're -- and complement to put this massive takeover in place -- going key provisions of it and oh by the way everything's fine.
It's going to be ready and so I think the American public American people.
You know see through this they know what it is in this -- gonna help wolf peel back I think -- sort of a masquerade.
On this key provision.
You know the constitution.
Sets out the duty of the president United States to face fully -- acute the laws.
Now this is a law that he's not faithfully executing as written and again it was mandatory language it got -- starting January 1 2014.
Do you think this is a a president that's actually in breach of his duties.
You know I think this is eight and -- Of lack of enforcement decision to ignore.
Laws this obviously isn't the first.
Experience we've had with this White House that he and obviously we're gonna focus on.
That lack of enforcement just making up laws as you go along but we're also gonna focus on the issue right in front of us which is.
Why is business giving a reprieve and local families.
In their children and their parents not getting the repeat -- a reprieve from a pretty terrible law are.
-- congressman Kevin Brady again you're going to be -- today's hearing it's gonna begin in just a few minutes.
