Jim Bridenstine Says Obamacare’s Employer Mandate Delay Is Proof It’s ‘Unworkable’
The Obama administration has announced that the start of the Obamacare employee mandate has been delayed from 2014 to 2015. Congressman Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.) believes that this one-year delay is proof that Obamacare will not work.
On his personal Twitter page, Bridenstine tweeted:
Obamacare’s employer mandate has been pushed back for one year. Yet another admission by Dems that Obamacare is unworkable. #pjnet

Earlier this year, Bridenstine called Obamacare a “government takeover” and said Chief Justice John Roberts was “incorrect” on the Affordable Care Act being a tax. He also said that he wants Congress to “take back its constitutional authority.”
According to Fox News, several Republicans claimed the abrupt change was a dead giveaway that there are lingering with Obama’s health care bill, and that lawmakers are now asking if the tweaks to the bill constitute an abuse of power.
