Boehner Brings Suit Against Obama Regarding Employer-Mandate Delays


On Wednesday, July 30, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) moved to bring suit against President Barack Obama regarding employer-mandate delays as they pertain to the Affordable Care Act. The House voted along party lines 225-201 to move forward with the lawsuit, which authorizes Speaker Boehner to take legal action against the president.

Under the mandate, businesses employing more than 50 workers must provide health care coverage, or pay fines of $2,000 per employee. This mandate was initially supposed to go into effect early this year, but was delayed until 2015. In February, the administration stated that companies employing between 50 and 100 full-time employees will not need to comply until 2016. However, unlike many other administrative rollouts, the statute explicitly stated that the mandate “shall apply to months beginning after December 31, 2013.”
