Another Day, Another Delay
WASHINGTON, D.C., February 10, 2014 — National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Director of Federal Public Policy Amanda Austin made the following statement in response to today’s announcement delaying part of the Obamacare employer mandate through 2015:
“It doesn’t always feel good to be right,” said Austin. “Every time small-business owners hear about another delay or random rewrite of the rules under this law, they are shaking their heads and thinking ‘we told you so.’ Today’s news is simply the latest indicator that this law is not ready for prime time and has systemic flaws that need to be corrected permanently. Temporary delays are not enough.”
