House Small Business Committee Chairman Sam Graves (R-MO) released the following statement after the Administration’s announcement that small businesses between 50 and 99 employees would be exempt from the employer mandate until 2016:

“Today’s decision to delay yet another part of the law is another sign it is simply bad policy and is doing more harm than good to our economy and health care system. If it’s so great, why the need for multiple delays? Small businesses are grappling with health care costs that have doubled as a result of the law, and many businesses have already made hiring decisions based on the law’s requirements. Many companies are confused and perplexed by all of the changes and delays to the law, and today’s decision doesn’t help. Small businesses don’t need another postponement, they need a better law.”
