SPECIAL TO SEGAZINE
U.S. Senators Johnny Isakson R-Ga., and Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., along with all 44 of their Republican colleagues, sent a letter today to President Obama urging him to permanently delay the implementation of ObamaCare for all Americans.
Last week, the Obama Administration announced that after hearing concerns from the business community, it will delay implementation of a key ObamaCare component, the employer mandate, until 2015.
Isakson and Chambliss have voted several times to repeal Obamacare or provisions in the law.
Isakson is a member of the Senate Finance Committee, which has jurisdiction over Obamacare because the Supreme Court upheld the law last year by designating it as a tax. Isakson also serves on the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, which oversees health care and the Department of Health and Human Services.
In their letter, the senators wrote, “[W]hile your action finally acknowledges some of the many burdens this law will place on job creators, we believe the rest of this law should be permanently delayed for everyone in order to avoid significant economic harm to American families.”
