 WASHINGTON, D.C. - House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) released the following statement calling for ObamaCare to be delayed for all Americans following news last night that the Administration has delayed the individual mandate for those whose plans were canceled under ObamaCare:

"Our entire health care system can't be fundamentally changed at any given time subject to the random impulses of President Obama. How can anyone make health care decisions today knowing that the law may be unilaterally changed again tomorrow?

"Many Americans had good health care that they liked and could afford, but lost it due to ObamaCare. Absent affordable alternatives, these families are now being told to simply go without care for a year or buy a bare bones plan that doesn't offer them the care they need. Is that the promise of ObamaCare?

"Republicans have consistently asked for a one year delay of the mandates for all Americans, and put forward a proposal to allow American families to keep their health plans. The White House actions clearly prove ObamaCare can't work as designed. It's time for ObamaCare to be delayed for all."
