President Obama’s decision to delay for one year a key requirement of the Affordable Care Act was “a continuation of what we have begun to call the imperial presidency,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) told Sean Hannity Tuesday night.
Cantor criticized President Obama for selectively enforcing the law. He also said the individual mandate should be delayed along with the mandate that applies to employers.
But when Hannity asked if House Republicans would consider defunding Obamacare — since efforts to repeal it have not worked — Cantor’s confusing response did not answer the question:
“Right, and we have continued, when we — to do just that, we’ve continued to say under the sequester that we’re operating on, that the president says, you know, he wants to do something about it, but never has come forward with any kind of other suggested reforms in the entitlement areas. But when they ask for more money for Obamacare’s implementation, we said no. We said no, we don’t feel that this law is the right direction to go in. Nor do we feel this administration should have the ability to take taxpayer dollars to go and sell and market this bill.
