Delaying certain requirements for many Americans.
This will be the 38 time Republicans have tried either -- back to -- -- eliminate -- all together.
Republican congressman Kevin Brady of Texas my guess chairman of the subcommittee on health a member of the house Ways and Means Committee -- the cosponsor of a lot of this today -- there.
Good morning and welcome back what do you specifically trying to do today if you get the votes.
He -- this first time treasury has actually appear before congress and say.
Tried to hide this blockbuster announcement.
In a blog posts over the fourth of July and down this question is look if Warren Buffett is gonna get a pass from Obama here.
From the White House.
How about Joseph six pack I mean how about average workers who are worried about this is well because clearly.
If Obama -- is not ready for business.
Is it ready for your family for your child for your loved one.
The answer is.
Probably not and -- just to back up a little bit here undermined viewers what happened from the White House two weeks ago it was in the afternoon of July 3 is that when I came out.
Is like this second but the sex right during that holiday I got hit that was late in the afternoon on Tuesday released in a blog post you write about that and that.
Delayed for one year.
The employer mandate if you have a company you employ more than fifty individuals you -- get another year.
Two before you have to Obey the law that you're trying to also do this for individuals in what sensor.
Yeah out of fairness BK is you know put it again to businesses don't have to comply with the law on time as scheduled as a -- says.
Why do workers have to do this in fact Obama cares no more ready for them and for them.
You know this is not about the issue of the bottom line you know it's their fame it's their children.
-- by every measure.
This White House is missed every -- deadline for putting this in place so we're worried about the workers in the family.
All right -- -- and I've got a pole here 66%.
As of now a quarter drop polling say that they're worried about obamacare and how makes them feel about the future for their health care.
That number just keeps going up and Jay Carney made the case yesterday.
He says that there is no data that supports the company's right now.
Are let go of employees because dumb because they're concerned about taking them from full time to part time -- getting underneath that.
Fifty number threshold in addition to that we've got a question for -- now because you asked do you YA a wanna get to this right now because -- asked.
DOT US unilaterally postpone a portion of the law doesn't congress have to approve changes to the law what is your view on that sir.
Now I agree I think congress does have to.
Approved changes of this magnitude that's actually what we're going to do today to actually move that postponement date or move that deadline back a year but.
You know races the question if the White House thinks have the legal authority to postpone -- full work.
The CEOs and business.
Don't they have the legal authority to postpone it for the workers and their families and we think the answer is congress.
Should postpone them both it's not ready.
I'm reading the -- here in it appears that any amendment served.
Viable so long as there may idea but for the end of the year which -- December 31 2013.
So -- the way that the provision in the law was written the White House can do this.
And if that is true and you're kind of under the -- right now in terms of a time for him.
You know we've we are under the gun mainly because you're already -- and I disagree Jay Carney he just needs to walk along any main street America.
Business will tell you they're cutting hours they're cutting workers they are not hiring in by the way.
They're seeing huge increase is -- health care costs.
They don't know how to pay for today so.
Main -- America has been begging not just for a one year postponement they they want the mandate repealed because they know the damage is being done.
But but where does that leave workers where does that leave the single mom working -- local restaurant where they're just the White House certainly isn't listening to them.
Well you have the unions come out with a scathing letter to I mean they weren't happy either so we're still searching to find people are happy with us.
Maybe for 25 years old live with your parents are happy.
We shall see Kevin Brady have both come soon come on back OK thank you to our viewers at home you --
