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. 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.

Because of , 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
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. Harry Reid has not
allowed a vote on this bill.
Student loans are not an issue
we should play politics with, and I hope Sen. Reid realizes this soon.
