How much do New Mexico’s Democratic House members LOVE the unpopular law known as ObamaCare? So much that they have voted to impose the individual mandate as planned even while the Obama Administration has delayed implementation of the employer mandate for one year. In other words, you the average person should not receive the same benefit as big businesses with more than 50 employees who simply can’t be expected to comply with the health care mandate.
Needless to say, this is not a position supported by large numbers of Americans. In fact, the position advocated by Lujan and Lujan-Grisham has a “robust” 12 percent support according to new polling.
Interesting that New Mexico’s Congressional Democrats —self-appointed advocates for the little-guy — are so willing to throw the average person under the bus while supporting big business, no? It would be nice if these two — along with the rest of our delegation — supported a year-long delay in the law our outright repeal of this law which is no longer even popular with the union base of the Democratic Party which supported passage of the law in the first place.
