Republicans have a new front to fight the President’s signature healthcare law after the administration delays a key provision.

FOX News Radio’s Jared Halpern reports from Washignton:

Audio clip:

A Republican-led House panel is demanding to know why businesses get another year to provide health insurance to employees with no such accommodation for the individual mandate.

(Brady) “Workers and their families have a government mandate when we’ve given a reprieve for businesses.”

Texas Republican Kevin Brady calls it a question of fairness. Washington Democrat Jim McDermott says the administration is simply listening to concerns from business leaders.

(McDermott) “The real issue here is whether you want Obamacare or not.”

The White House suggesting hypocrisy, noting Republicans, now complaining about a delay, have voted to repeal the entire healthcare law.
