Manchin Statement on Additional Health Care Penalty Delay
|Targeted News Service|
"I've always said that 2014 should be a transition year for the health care law, and we must give the American people a chance to shop around for the best and most affordable insurance plans. Yesterday's announcement to delay the mandate penalty for those whose plans were cancelled under the individual market is a step in the right direction, but why not delay all mandate penalties like the bipartisan legislation Senator Kirk and I introduced? This piecemeal approach, including delaying fines for larger employers and small businesses but not all parts of the mandate, doesn't make any sense. We should provide certainty and confidence and allow all Americans - who are some of the best shoppers in the world - to have the time they need to browse and explore the options best suited for their families, waiving all penalties and fees across the board. Let's work to fix the serious problems with the rollout of Healthcare.gov and the law's implementation so that all West Virginians and Americans can access affordable health care."
