Indiana‘s senior U-S Senator says the Affordable Care Act — also referred to as “Obamacare” — needs to be delayed and replaced with what he called a “workable” plan.

Senator Dan Coats asked his colleagues, Republican and Democrat, to support his bill to postpone all mandates of the A-C-A until January 2015.

He made the comments on the Senate floor this morning (Thurs) Coats said there‘ve already been thousands of waivers put in place ahead of the healthcare reform law‘s taking effect.  He also said that President Obama already determined that he will delay the employer mandate.

Coats says he currently has more than 30 Senators‘ support for his measure.  A companion bill authored by Indiana GOP Congressman Todd Young already passed the House with what Coats said was bipartisan support.
