Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., will press President Barack Obama for a delay of the individual mandate of Affordable Care Act at a meeting the commander-in-chief is holding with top Republicans, says Susan Ferrechio, chief congressional correspondent of The Washington Examiner.

"Eric Cantor just told me today that he's going to talk to the president about delaying the individual mandate," Ferrechio told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.



"That would be probably the biggest thing they could get and it would be hard to imagine that kind of concession except for the fact that the healthcare law implementation is a disaster," Ferrechio said.

"Then the president says, hmm, great idea, then I can blame them and then give us time to see what the problem is here."

But a delay also has its risks.

"There's huge pitfalls for delaying it because if you delay it, it puts the whole thing in jeopardy," Ferrechio said.

With any deal the Republicans put forward, Ferrechio added, "they still have to worry about that far-right flank. So they need to put something in it for them."
