Republicans to Obama: Delay individual mandate (CNN 8/17/2013)
CNN Political Unit ^ | August 17th, 2013 | CNN Political Unit

Posted on 10/23/2013 8:03:34 PM PDT by sickoflibs

(CNN) - Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, R-West Virginia, called on the president Saturday to delay the individual mandate in the health care law that requires Americans to obtain insurance or face a penalty.

The GOP-controlled House passed a bill this summer urging the administration to do so, but the bill has no future in the Democratic-controlled Senate.

The administration already announced it would delay a provision requiring businesses with more than 50 employees to provide insurance.

"It’s time for your Senate to pass – and for you to sign – the House’s bipartisan delay of the individual mandate," the congresswoman said in the GOP weekly address. "Let’s delay this health care law not just for some, but for all Americans."

Read a full transcript of her remarks below.

But...but...but...the leftwing, ‘RAT extremists says that it’s “the law of the land.” You can’t delay “the law of the land”.

NO DELAY.

It’s the law of the land.

Obama shut the government down in order to fend off a Republican delay.

Let him start the fines for not being able to purchase crap nobody wanted to buy anyway.

IDIOTS! No delay.

They’ve called us jihadists, terrorists, and arsonists, say we “strap bombs to our chest”, call us anarchists, and of course racists... now they want delay?

NO WAY.

Send out Cruz and Lee and all the “tea party” to demand a delay and Obama won’t be able to delay it.

6 Dems is enough to get it past the Senate if Reid brings it up and the GOP goes along.

A delay has to be approved by Congress and even if the Senate passes such a delay, the House can dilly dally for a long time.

Ted Cruz was right and, unless they own up to that, leave them hanging.

Nope - wrong answer.

At this point I think the pubbies would be better off simply simply shrugging their shoulders and remind anyone who listen that they tried to stop the implementation of this horrible law.

And then, they should take off the gloves and excoriate the sycophantic, boot-licking press, for not doing their job.

The answer to "I won", is "fine, you own it..."

That boot lickin press just turned on Obamacare like a bunch of hungry sharks biting a bleeding fish. Chuck Todd of NBC/MSNBC.

Completely broke the talk radio paradigm. They said this cant happen.

No amount of GOP complaining over 3 years(past two anyway) did this.

GOP suggested this delay, and Dems cursed the idea.

A reminder that there really is no mandate, as there is no provision to collect the penalty for not having insurance.

If the individual mandate is delayed then all the people hired to administer both mandates must be laid off. Since there is no work to do there must be no workers.

Laid off??
The GOP House rushed in to pay the Federal employees for their two weeks off during shutdown before it was even over, passed that bill on a Saturday.

last week a Female Friend of mine who is a GS emailed me with with :”You guys caved too soon. I wanted another two weeks off (paid vacation)”

Well, its only taxpayers $$$ anyway right?

The hue and cry must be raised. There must at least be loud noises to protest the ongoing waste of money and human resources.

The shame of going to work and having nothing to do and no one to direct the non work is life threatening. The permanent harm to the psyche will last forever and reduce life span. Being Riff’ed is a life saving measure.

Love it. You nailed it but good.

This is the part I like best: Remind smug Ohaha that he said "I won." Then rub it in his self-satisfied face..... "fine, you won, you own it..."

I didnt like the GOP leading the charge to pay those Federal workers for another two weeks vacation during shutdown, adding it to the national debt.
Made them look just as stupid as they did in 1996 when they did exactly the same thing when that cost $$$ too.

But... but.... A week or two ago, when Republicans were saying DELAY it... They were being called “Terrorists”... and mean, horrible, awful, rotten people that wanted old ladies and minority children - ESPECIALLY minority children - to DIE horrible screaming deaths unless this wonderful, beneficial, most merciful law was rolled out on time...

Oh... wait... you say it’s DEMS calling for the delay, now?

Oh. That’s ok. Never mind then...

I found this CNN post because I was trying to figure out what happened to that house CR proposal that delayed just the mandate.
last night Levin was ranting claiming it was Cruz's idea but Cruz only proposed defunding it not delaying it. The GOP House leadership came up with that idea as a CR move.

I thought that Bohner couldnt get a GOP majority to put it up for a vote so a CR with that mandate delay never got passed in House.

I just found this:

Obamacare is far more than the individual mandate, the employer mandate, and the new entitlement spending. It’s a massive, government-centered restructuring of American health care.
Simply delaying Obamacare:
•…is a gift to the Obama Administration. Federal bureaucrats have missed nearly half of their self-imposed deadlines to get the law up and running. Why provide them more time to make sure thousands of regulations

This was about a full delay but still worth referencing

(WASHINGTON) — The federal government could be moving towards its first shutdown in almost 20 years with House Republicans preparing to vote on a spending bill that would delay aspects of the Affordable Care Act for one year in exchange for continuing to fund the government.

Harry Reid called the potential vote “pointless,” saying that “the Senate will reject any Republican effort to force changes to the Affordable Care Act through a mandatory government funding bill or the debt ceiling.” The Democrat-controlled Senate has repeatedly made clear that it will not pass a budget plan that calls for a delay or defunding of Obamacare.
