Mullin Advocates For ObamaCare Implementation Delay
CLAREMORE — U. S. Rep. Markwayne Mullin told Claremore business leaders Monday that delaying the implementation of the Affordable Care Act — aka Obamacare — is the best strategy for Congress.
Following his opening remarks which included a joke about his being late because he had to wait on a train, Mullin directly addressed his thoughts on “Obamacare.”
“National healthcare — there’s been a lot of talk about defunding government to fund ‘Obamacare’, especially as it pertains to shutting down the government,” he said. “There’s been some talk about delaying implementations. Why delay it instead of just do away with it altogether? Why even waste our time doing that? Well, the reason we’re trying to delay it instead of do away with it is that we’ve tried to do away with it 40 times and it doesn’t do us any good. Not to mention, if the Senate was to pick it up to do away with it — Obamacare, the chances of this President vetoing that bill are slim to none.
