House to vote on Obamacare mandates
Should the individual mandate be implemented on time? House leadership has scheduled a vote for next week to seek a delay in both the individual and employer mandates in Obamacare.
"The president delayed Obamacare's employer mandate, but he hasn't delayed the mandate on individuals and families," Boehner said Thursday. "This is unfair, and it is indefensible."
Some Democrats who are looking at tough re-election contests may be temped to vote for the delay in the individual mandate. But realistically, it won't matter that much. The administration is committed to implement Obamacare regardless so most Democrats in the House and Senate will find themselves with no wiggle room. They are going to have to support Obama and take their chances with the voters.
