Rep. Blackburn: Obama Would Win 'Gold Medals for Failure,' No Contest

February 10, 2014 - 6:14 PM

If failure were an Olympic sport, the Obama administration would win the gold "going away," Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) said after the Obama Administration announced another delay for Obamacare's employer mandate.

"If they awarded gold medals for failure, this administration would win the medal count going away," Rep. Blackburn said.

Blackburn also took issue with the president circumventing Congress in the process:

"Once again, President Obama is circumventing Congress by acting unilaterally to provide relief for businesses, while ignoring the millions of individuals who are suffering under his failed health care law"

"It's time for the President to stop delaying and start admitting what everyone else already knows - Obamacare isn't working. It's time to repeal and replace Obamacare with patient-centered solutions that reduce cost and offer Americans access to the quality coverage they deserve."
