WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue issued the following statement today regarding the Obama Administration’s announcement that it will delay part of the health care law’s employer mandate for a second year:
“While we appreciate that this delay will give some businesses additional time to comply with the employer mandate, other critical steps must be taken to reduce the significant harm that this law is inflicting on businesses of all sizes. This short-term fix also creates new problems for companies by moving the goalposts of the mandate modestly when what we really need is a time-out. The Chamber will continue to push for critical regulatory and legislative proposals that will alleviate uncertainty and ease the burden on businesses and their employees.”
