Senator Mike Johanns wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act, but in the meantime is calling for delays.

Johanns cosponsored a bill today to delay Obamacare's individual mandate as long as employer mandate delays remain in effect.

The legislation, known as the Freeing Americans from Inequitable Requirements - FAIR Act - was introduced by fellow Nebraska Senator Deb Fischer.

In a statement, Johanns said, "Cherry-picking who gets a delay and who must cope with the law, as the Administration has done, is just wrong. This bill would ensure that any delay of the employer mandate means a delay for American families as well."

Johanns has cosponsored or voted for more than 30 efforts to delay or repeal Obamacare.
