Sessions: Americans Deserve the Same Relief from ObamaCare as Businesses

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today released the following statement regarding House passage of H.R. 4118, the Suspending the Individual Mandate Penalty Law Equals Fairness Act:

“Since ObamaCare was enacted in 2010, the Administration has delayed or modified parts of the law more than 20 times through unilateral executive action rather than through the constitutional law making process.  Although the employer mandate has been delayed twice due to pressure from businesses and unions seeking reprieve from the law’s onerous costs, the Obama Administration refuses to delay the individual mandate.  I believe that families and individuals deserve the same relief as businesses from the devastating health care law that has forced millions off of their preferred insurance plans and caused out-of-pocket costs to skyrocket. While I continue to fight to fully repeal the president’s health care law, I proudly voted today to protect Americans from ObamaCare’s individual mandate.”
