Broken Promises

United States Senator For Georgia Saxby Chambliss Dear Friends, Last week, President Obama announced the delay of the implementation of the employer mandate portion of ObamaCare until 2015. The employer mandate would have severely hurt businesses, resulting in fewer jobs and fewer work hours for employees [link 1]. However, the individual mandate will still go into effect. In response to this decision, I joined my Republican colleagues in urging President Obama [link 2] to permanently delay the implementation of the entire ObamaCare law for all Americans. While I applaud the administration�s decision to delay this harmful regulation for businesses, it is unfair for the rest of America. This law is harmful to businesses for the same reasons it is harmful to individuals and families. Because ObamaCare is built upon broken promises, it will result in higher health care costs and more taxes. We should repeal it. Watch my YouTube Address on ObamaCare here: [image = chambliss.enews.senate.gov/images/chambliss1.jpg] [link 3] Because of Senate Democrats' failure to address student loan rates [link 4], on July 1st the subsidized Stafford loan interest rates doubled from 3.4% to 6.8%. I believe all students should have the opportunity to pursue an affordable education. Students and their parents deserve financial certainty, so they may properly plan for their college education.� I support a permanent fix to the student loan interest rate. However, the Senate Democrats� proposal to address this issue was a temporary, two-year fix that would have only slightly lowered the interest rates for student loans. The White House and Republicans agree overwhelmingly on a bipartisan, permanent solution which would reduce rates and fix interest rates to the marketplace, but Sen.

Dear Friends,

Last week, President Obama announced the delay of the implementation of the employer mandate portion of ObamaCare until 2015. The employer mandate would have severely hurt businesses, resulting in . However, the individual mandate will still go into effect.

In response to this decision, to permanently delay the implementation of the entire ObamaCare law for all Americans.

This law is harmful to businesses for the same reasons it is harmful to individuals and families. Because ObamaCare is built upon broken promises, it will result in higher health care costs and more taxes. We should repeal it.
