Boehner to Obama: Why Obamacare Break for Businesses Only?

Tuesday, 09 Jul 2013 11:50 AM

House Speaker John Boehner says President Barack Obama should grant individuals a reprieve from his health care law's coverage requirement — just like the White House did last week for larger employers.

In a letter to the president Tuesday, the Ohio Republican and other GOP leaders said —quote— "we also believe American families need the same relief."

The letter frames a new Republican argument against the law, one that could gain traction in next year's congressional elections.

Last week, the administration unexpectedly announced a one-year delay in the employer requirement, saying more time was needed to work out technical issues.

The requirement for individuals survived a Supreme Court challenge, and experts say it will be far more important in getting people to sign up than the employer requirement.
