State Representative Ron Bacon (R-Chandler) issued the following statement in response to the announcement of the delay of a key provision of Obamacare:

“Two weeks ago, I chose to write my weekly column about the unintended effects of Obamacare.  I expressed my concerns upon seeing many companies in Indiana cutting employee hours or cutting jobs all together in order to get around the employer mandate to provide health insurance. Yesterday however, we learned that a key provision of the Affordable Care Act has been delayed by one year.”

“I am very pleased to see this delay and simply regret that it did not come sooner. I’m afraid that for many Hoosiers, the damage has already been done. I consider this delay a small victory; but it doesn’t do anything to change what has already taken place.”
