WASHINGTON--U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement on the House of Representative’s bipartisan passage of delays for both the employer and individual mandate:

“The president has now acknowledged that a significant component of his health care law is broken and has delayed enforcement of Obamacare’s employer mandate.

“I applaud the House of Representatives’ action to ensure that all Americans are protected from Obamacare’s costly mandates and call on the Majority Leader to bring this legislation to the Senate floor for a vote.

“If Senate Democrats agree with the president that employers should be protected from Obamacare’s costly mandate, do they also believe that the rest of America should have that same protection?Rather than a delay for some, we need a permanent delay for all Americans.”

Senator Cornyn serves on the Finance and Judiciary Committees. He serves as the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee’s Immigration, Refugees and Border Security subcommittee. He served previously as Texas Attorney General, Texas Supreme Court Justice, and Bexar County District Judge.
