WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) released the following statement on the Obama Administration’s unilateral delay of the online small business exchange enrollment:

"Once again, President Obama has unilaterally delayed another major portion of ObamaCare, and once again, he has tried to bury bad news around a holiday hoping nobody will notice. These are hardly the actions of a transparent Administration.

“The President's latest one-year delay is another sign that ObamaCare's issues run much deeper than a failing website. The delay is also a reminder of the terrible harm ObamaCare will inflict on small businesses, costing jobs and economic growth.

“The President has fought bipartisan efforts to give middle class families and individuals a similar one-year delay from the debacle of ObamaCare. It's time all Americans are protected from the harm caused by ObamaCare."
