I -- back to Hannity the White House's decision to delay key provision of Obama care the employer mandate until 2015.
-- it's not sitting very well with Republican lawmakers earlier today the house ways and means subcommittee on health held a hearing about these over reaching decision of the White House.
Here are some of those highlights.
Treasury department's announcement confirms our concerns.
Obama care is simply not ready for patients families and their children's though you have to wonder.
If Obama care isn't ready for business.
Is -- ready for my family.
A lot of lives are at stake this law is literally just -- -- before our eyes.
I don't know how you can conclude that this is not a total fiasco.
Now we've got a situation where essentially.
Has been pumping sunshine.
For years the administration when asked how we doing this exactly how -- this great -- coming to fruition.
And this committee and in all sorts of public representations has been told.
It's great we've got it under control -- that we've got -- -- wrong wonderful plan for your life and it's going to be absolutely terrific and now what happens.
Late up before -- holiday weekend.
On a blog post.
-- pat -- Well this.
And right now here's why the story is important you for starters congressman Brady was absolutely right when he asked why only business is why and they just getting the break.
Why -- -- administration not delaying the implementation.
Of the individual mandate is well selective enforcement -- second.
Since when does the president of the United States decide which laws to enforce which laws he's gonna let slide.
That will not hold constitutional Muster and finally.
Decision was clearly politically time forcing the delay until -- after those -- mid term elections.
So what else can we expect from the White House knew before the voters head to the polls in 24 team.
There was reaction syndicated columnist author Patrick.
-- Leslie Marshall all right so.
The Obama administration unilaterally.
Leslie decides -- that they will delay implementation or part of it.
They don't go to congress for approval.
They get to decide which laws they want -- -- force that's okay within.
Well it's okay with me because the Affordable Care Act does not it's not going to be enforced.
This is still but a delay for approximately 4% of businesses that have fifteen or more.
Full time employees that don't provide benefits -- currently 96 approximately.
Percent of those employers already do first of all second of all.
What you have employers I don't know what you shot but I know I don't -- fifteen people in my family.
Of that I'm providing -- -- to purchase health care benefits for its very different because an individual can go to a database which is set up and ready to go.
This is still helping employers in the sense it's not that -- obamacare isn't ready perhaps the employers weren't ready we're hoping for the courts to decide differently than they did -- hoping for Republicans.
But to try and successfully.
Care which are not pat -- -- uninteresting that Barack Obama and the Democrats came down on the side of those big evil business guys but not not.
The the average American citizen I thought I -- that was an interesting twist.
Well -- on end.
What are no doubt about it this is a bit of fiasco.
Bit of a fiasco were talking about -- -- -- -- -- seven.
I can understand -- President Obama did -- it's gonna have a very adverse reaction in hiring and the economy.
But it is -- -- suspended for a year for the employers.
There are hundreds of thousands of workers who were relying upon the employers to provide -- insurance.
Who you are now throwing out into the market and say you go find it for yourself and your family even if you don't want it or you don't think you can afford it.
-- the IRS is going to be on your case here's a simple solution.
The president should ship -- supporter bill.
Which suspends the if the employer mandate for one year and individual mandate for one year and kick it over for a year yeah look -- more complex than we thought.
And by the way Leslie I'm sure this has nothing to do with the car wreck that would have been created in a mid term election year.
There's no coincidence at all right.
Actually I don't think it would have made a difference shot and I'll tell you why I'm you guys know the majority of the American people -- keep telling me didn't watch this I don't think it would have made a difference at all.
With regard to the elections and the outcome of the elections and and with what they respect all due respect to what pat said.
-- you know when you look at the -- figures and when you look out one of the reasons that our economy has had some of the problems with regard to Health Care Reform.
It hit him with health care is because of -- Overcrowding of emergency rooms when a kid has -- -- of 99 by individuals not by corporations.
And individuals definitely junior who has insurance to have preventative health care.
Professor doesn't really -- just and fair and equitable.
Peseta the employers the boss has an effect we know the problems you guys and got stuff in this complex.
We can get your break brigadier full year because we see how bad it is and then you tell these individuals who rely on -- -- For their insurance.
Just you don't get any reprieve you go out and buying insurance are you going to be talking -- -- IRS agent if we can get him back what did you under the tea parties.
-- me is that fair and just.
Leslie what I think.
But I think it's funny that got -- bit of politics that a lot more to me that we're putting very jobs in politics -- -- incentive.
But the but the bottom lining here is we're gonna put into the bottom line here this is this is not about fairness to do despite citizens item we're talking about an individual and family vs the corporation with -- -- and let me talk I'm totally.
Let me talk from Obama's standpoint.
Why wouldn't he why wouldn't need not just come forward and then look at Tom Harkin says he can't change the law -- can't change the data is written in the law.
If so why doesn't the president onstage say okay we're gonna -- any employer thing for a year but told often individual mandate for your -- guys they would have problems still.
Did a veteran whose political interest so -- Tell the Republicans -- -- and I'll take it didn't get the problem solved.
All right we're gonna take a break right -- -- we come back.
