House to vote Wednesday on delaying key parts of ObamaCare

The Republican-controlled House will vote Wednesday on delaying key parts of ObamaCare, the party’s latest effort to dismantle the law amid signs that it may be vulnerable.

The lawmakers will vote on bills to delay the start of the law’s distinct employer and individual mandates, which respectively require businesses and individual Americans to purchase insurance next year or face penalties.

The Obama administration earlier this month delayed the start of the employer mandate, saying the decision was in response to business owners expressing concerns about the law’s complex reporting requirements. Republicans say it’s unfair to only delay that provision — they want the requirements effectively pushed off for everyone.

Late Tuesday, the White House issued a threat to veto the Republican bills, saying their passage would help “further efforts to repeal a law that is already helping millions of Americans stay on their parents’ plans until age 26, millions more who are getting free preventive care that catches illness early on, and thousands of children with pre-existing conditions who are now covered.”
