SAN ANTONIO – U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement after co-sponsoring an amendment to delay both the employer and individual Obamacare mandates:

“As we have seen with delay after delay, the president has acknowledged that a significant portion of his health care law is broken.  It’s critical that we prevent this broken law from harming Americans.

“The president has already delayed a costly Obamacare mandate for employers.  Now it’s time to provide that same protection for Texans and the rest of America.  Rather than a delay for some, we need a permanent delay for all Americans.”

Additionally, Sen. Cornyn introduced his “Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act of 2013” as an amendment.  The bill would prohibit the Secretary of the Treasury, or any delegate, including the IRS, from enforcing Obamacare.
