Washington, DC – President Barack Obama has again delayed for most employers ObamaCare–s so-called employer mandate, a major component of his signature health-care law. Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) issued the following statement in response:
"This latest delay represents an acknowledgement that ObamaCare cannot be implemented as written without doing significant damage to the economy. The employer mandate is bad policy and should be fully repealed with the rest of ObamaCare; however, the Administration cannot simply ignore the clear requirements of the law, especially when the motivation for the non-enforcement is transparently political. The President may think that he can ”˜do whatever he wants,– but the Constitution says otherwise."
DeSantis recently introduced legislation that would require all federal officials who stop enforcing a law to report to Congress the reason for the non-enforcement. DeSantis has also introduced a House resolution disapproving of the failure of President Barack Obama to fulfill his duty under Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution to “take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.”?
