OVERNIGHT HEALTH: Mandate delay vote set for next week - The Hill's Healthwatch

The House will vote next week on a bill to delay ObamaCare's individual mandate, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Thursday. Republicans have launched a new offensive against the law, seizing on the delay of its employer mandate to argue that the entire law is unworkable.
“Is it fair for the president to give American businesses an exemption from his health law’s mandates, without giving the same break to the rest of America? Hell no, it’s not fair,” Boehner said. “Next week the House will vote to delay both the employer and individual mandate. It would be unfair to protect big business from ObamaCare but not individuals and families.”

This will be the House's 38th vote to repeal, delay or defund all or part of the Affordable Care Act. The delay in the employer mandate has re-energized GOP criticism of the law, giving Republicans a new opening to argue that the law is unworkable.

This is 38th attempt to repeal the affordable care act. With two weeks to go until the August recess there has to be other things this house can vote on
