Senator Coats Proposes Legislation To Delay Obamacare


Senator Dan Coats has proposed legislation to delay the implementation of Obamacare (the Affordable Care Act) until at least 2015.

Coats says the Act’s mandates are driving up insurance premiums and forcing businesses to cut workers’ hours or even jobs so that employers can avoid the act’s expensive legal requirements.

Moreover, he says, some families are having to switch their health insurance plans due to government requirements.

Coats’ plan is to delay the Obamacare mandates until the 2014  election.

Coats’ legislation, proposed yesterday, mirrors legislation in the House of Representatives put forth by Indiana’s Republican member Todd Young, which passed.

According to Senator Coats, “Congressman Young and I agree that rather than delay a bad policy for some, all Hoosier families should  be exempted from Obamacare’s taxes and mandates.”
