Posted on 07/10/2013 3:29:20 PM PDT by ColdOne
All 45 Senate Republicans are calling for the implementation of Obamacare to be permanently delayed. The senators make their request in a letter to President Obama.
"We write to express concern that in your recent decision to delay implementation of the employer mandate, you have unilaterally acted and failed to work with Congress on such a significant decision. Further, while 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," the senators write.
In response to questions about the administrations decision, your senior advisor Valerie Jarrett said, We are listening, while referring to the concerns of the business community over the onerous employer mandate that will result in fewer jobs and employees working fewer hours. We have been listening as well, and as more employers have attempted to understand your burdensome requirements in the Affordable Care Act, the louder their outrage has become.

Why not get Zer0 permanently unimplemented (retired)?
Mostly wacko birds.
These guys only exhibit courage when the result is going to be obvious.
their wimpyness is what got us Obamacare. They are to late!
They want to delay it until they can get all the illegals signed up.
I’d delay implementing it for everyone except the people who got waivers.
They really need to stop writing in this kind of milquetoasty 1986-era rhetoric.
Is that where all the GM bail-out money went?
Yes I know....I asked the mods to change that. LOL!
Don't negotiate with terrorists.
What’s the difference between ‘permanently delay’ and ‘repeal’?
I say let them implement all of it on schedule. The public must feel the pain. Delay just buys time and political advantage for the Dems. The parts of the bill that the public likes have already been implemented never to be repealed.
I believe certain RINO/republicans are happy to have Obamacare resurface as an issue so it will draw attention away from the fact they are ready to capitulate on an immigration/amnesty bill.
If real republicans want to do their job and earn their keep they can let Obamacare implode under the weight of its own deficiencies and flaws while they concentrate on killing any move to pass an immigration bill out of the house.
Let Obamacare go down and take the democrats with it.
Odds are a million to one they will do just the opposite.
Too late, the Obamacar is already being produced by Chevy. Its sales are dismal, and they have a problem with the battery catching on fire.
