Rep. Scalise: 'Laws Are Not Made to Be Selectively Enforced'

February 10, 2014 - 6:01 PM

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) today blasted the Obama administration for unilaterally announcing yet another "selectively enforced" Obamacare edict: a one-year delay in the employer mandate - but only for medium-sized employers.

"The fact that President Obama is delaying another key component of his health care law through the remainder of his Presidency confirms the devastation that Obamacare is causing throughout the nation," Republican Study Committee Chairman Scalise said.

"Instead of focusing on short-term patches for insurance companies and corporations, it's time for President Obama to delay the penalties that threaten millions of Americans instead."

"Attempting to bail out some while abandoning the majority of Americans will not hide the failure of Obamacare.

"Laws are not made to be selectively enforced whenever the Obama Administration wants to try salvaging low poll numbers. It is time for President Obama to admit his broken health care law has failed, and join with House Republicans to suspend the penalties and stop this train wreck before more hard-working families are harmed."
