Last week, Toomey co-sponsored two bills authored by Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), and Sen. Dan Coats (R-Ind.), and Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), which either delay a portion or all of the mandates and taxes established by the health care law for one year. Specifically, both of these bills delay the individual and employer mandates scheduled to go into effect onJanuary 1, 2014.
“The president’s health care law is fundamentally wrong in its approach to improving our nation’s health care system and should be repealed in its entirety,” said Toomey in a press release.
“This law imposes onerous new mandates and regulations that are bad for patients, doctors, job growth, and our overall economy. In the absence of repealing this law, Congress should at least delay the implementation of its heavy-handed mandates to prevent the imminent harm they will have on the pocketbooks of Pennsylvanians, job creation, and our economy.”
