WASHINGTON, D.C. ó U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) Tuesday issued the following statement regarding the Obama Administrationís decision to delay implementation of Obamacareís employer mandate:

The President knows Obamacare is, in the words of one if its chief architects, a train wreck. Now, apparently fearing being held accountable to voters at the ballot box, the President wants to delay implementation until after the 2014 elections. We should accept the Presidentís invitation, and indeed defund Obamacare altogether, to restore economic growth and avoid the impending train wreck.
