Guthrie added that rolling back President Obama’s signature healthcare law is essential before its latest set of regulations takes effect next year.

“We’re fully committed to repealing ObamaCare,” he said during the GOP’s weekly address.
 
“If ObamaCare’s next round of regulations takes effect on Jan. 1, mere months from now, small businesses will be forced into larger group insurance markets that have dramatically higher rates,” Guthrie added.
 
“That means that business owners, employees and their families will be the ones on the hook for higher costs.”
 
Guthrie touted bipartisan legislation he helped author that he said would save money for consumers.
 
“It would ensure that employers with 50-100 employees would be able to keep their current healthcare plans and avoid more burdensome ObamaCare mandates,” he said.
 
“This will give relief to American workers across the country,” Guthrie said. “Rising healthcare costs make it impossible to plan for the future. That means it is impossible to hire more people.”
 
“We know that when Main Street does well, so do American families,” he added.
