Boehner’s Office on Obama ‘Rewriting’ ACA: ‘We Are Examining All of Our Options’

House Speaker John Boehner’s office said today that he is examining options on how to respond to what the speaker yesterday characterized as President Barack Obama’s “rewriting” of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act “on a whim.”

“We are examining all of our options,” Boehner’s spokesman Michael Steel told on Tuesday.

On Monday, the Treasury Department announced a new regulation that frees employers with between 50 and 99 employees from complying until 2016 with the Affordable Care Act mandate that requires all employees with at least 50 full-time workers to buy them health insurance.

Under the law, such employers were required to comply with the insurance mandate by Jan. 1, 2014–or pay a fine to the federal government.
