GOP Calls for Delay in Individual Health Care Mandate

Congressional GOP leaders called Tuesday for a delay in requiring that individual Americans carry health insurance. If the White House can grant a one-year delay for employers -- as the administration did just last week -- individuals should get the same consideration, House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio and other senior Republicans said in a letter to the president. White House spokesman Jay Carney said the administration has no intention of delaying the individual mandate. The Chattanooga Times Free Press has the story.
