Rubio Pushes to Delay Obamacare Mandate

Senator slams Obama administration for Obamacare glitches


Sen. Marco Rubio is proposing a law that would delay the individual mandate under Obamacare due to the technical glitches on the Affordable Care Act website.

Politico reports that Rubio is introducing the legislation because the glitches have made it impossible for some people to sign up for Obamacare and he wants to ensure that these people are not punished later by the IRS. Rubio said that the law “basically delays that requirement until the [Government Accountability] Office has certified that it’s been up and running and effectively working for six months consecutive. I think that’s a prudent approach given the problems that it’s facing by the White House’s own admission.”

The Senator also slammed the proposed solution for the technical glitches due to the lack of transparency in Obama’s plans. He said that we don’t know who is going to fix these technical glitches, how they’re going to do it or how far these tech experts have gone to fix the Obamacare glitches.NewLetters
