GOP weekly address calls for delay of individual mandate

In the address, Rep. Todd Young (R-Ind.) slammed all of the individual health insurance cancellations that are happening around the country because the plans don’t meet the new requirements of the Affordable Care Act. Obama apologized about the cancellations in an interview with NBC Thursday.

Young shared stories from his constituents whose plans have been cancelled and are struggling to sign up for new plans on the glitch-filled HealthCare.gov, where he says they’re seeing higher costs.

“This is what betrayal looks like,” Young said. If Obama is “truly sorry” about these cancellations and the other problems with the law, Young said, he will “take steps to right this wrong” and delay the individual mandate penalty.

“After all, how can you tax people for not buying a product from a website that doesn’t work?” Young asked.
