So many times we hear President Barack Obama talk about being fair — fair to the middle class, fair to the working poor, etc. However, is it fair for him to decide (Congress is suppose to make the change) that big business can have a one-year delay in following the Affordable Care Act (i.e., Obamacare)?

He has given waivers to other groups that don't like Obamacare and how it will affect them, but the small businessman must still plan on following the mandate and not get the same delay big business gets.

Is it fair for Obama to change the rules so congressman and their staffers will get a subsidy for their health care plan under Obamacare because it would be costly and their staff would leave? But we must pay the price no matter the hardship for us.

Congress didn't read the bill before they passed it and despite 63 percent of Americans being against it. They pushed the mandates on us, but they don't like it for themselves.

Stop being unfair to the taxpaying Americans. This bill must be repealed or delayed for all people.
