The Hill: Senate Dem introduces bill to delay employer healthcare mandate

Sen. Mark Begich (D-Alaska) introduced a bill Thursday that would delay President Obama’s employer healthcare mandate for two years.

Begich, who is expected to have a tough reelection fight in 2016, introduced the Small Business Relief Plan, S. 1330, which combines five bills amending the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare.

“This package will give families and small businesses more options to choose from when picking a health plan, provide much needed tax credits to more small-business owners, reduce taxes for business expenses, and delay the employer responsibility reporting requirements and penalties to give businesses time to learn about the new law,” Begich said.
