WASHINGTON D.C. (WTVB) - For the 38th time, the Republican majority in the U.S. House has taken a vote to undo Obamacare. This time they ratified the President’s decision to delay implementation of the business requirements for The Affordable Care Act for a year, and extended it to the mandate that young adults get coverage.

7th District Michigan Republican Tim Walberg charged the President was favoring big business over citizens. He said it’s only fair that all taxpayers-whether business or families, receive relief from theses burdensome mandates.White House Spokesman Jay Carney counters by saying that the Healthcare plan has already started to pay off for the public with competition and transparency in the marketplaces plus the hard effort by those committed to making the law work are leading to affordable, new and better choices for families.

The two House bills are doomed in the Senate and the President says he would veto them anyway. President Obama plans a major address on the issue later today.
