"If ObamaCare is so wonderful, why are healthcare prices exploding? Why are millions of Americans getting kicked out of their plans? Why are so many workers losing their jobs or getting their hours cut?

"The law isn't wonderful, it's a train wreck, and you know it, I know it, and the American people know it," he added. "Even the president knows it, that's why he proposed delaying this mandate on employers."

Boehner called on Democrats to support legislation up this week that would authorize the administration's decision to delay the ObamaCare requirement that companies provide health insurance to their employees. But he also said Democrats should support a GOP bill to delay the individual insurance mandate as well.

He said failing to extend the same break to individuals would mean Democrats are giving companies a break that they aren't willing to give to average Americans. He said giving companies the break, but not individuals, would be "unfair."

"That's why we'll vote tomorrow to make sure that families and individuals get the same break from ObamaCare that the president wants for big businesses," he said.

H.R. 2667, the Authority for Mandate Delay Act, would authorize a delay of the employer health insurance mandate. Also up Wednesday is H.R. 2668, the Fairness for American Families Act, which would delay the individual health insurance mandate.
