Obamacare is "fundamentally flawed," according to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who said Thursday there is now "common ground" between the White House, union leaders, and Republicans that "this thing is not ready."

"The administration began to see and finally admitted that it wasn't ready to be implemented, and just this week, what we saw were Democratic union leaders write a letter to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid pointing out that there were going to be devastating effects of Obamacare in terms of job prospects and people's healthcare," Cantor said on "Fox & Friends."

The House voted Wednesday to delay the law's individual and employer mandates for one year. But Cantor said the law's implementation problems are even worse than those that plagued the Medicare Part B benefits program during the George W. Bush administration.

"The Obamacare legislation is a total rewrite of the kind of healthcare that we can expect," Cantor said when comparing Obamacare to the implementation of Medicare Part B.
The congressman pointed to the law’s possible negative effects on jobs and families, echoing recent criticisms by unions.

"These union leaders say not only is it going to be bad for healthcare, but they say it's going to be bad for jobs," he said. "It will actually harm the 40-hour work week that the union community has been about for so long in this country. It is going to be bad for working families."
