Congress: Obamacare

Members of Indiana's congressional delegation agree President Obama's delay in new minimum health coverage requirements is only a first step.

Seventh District Democrat Andre Carson calls the rollout of the federal health care law "embarrassing" and "a mess."

But he says the delay of rules that prompted the cancellation of thousands of plans considered substandard buys time for the White House and Congress to ensure health coverage is both affordable and adequate.

Fifth District Republican Susan Brooks says Obama's announcement still doesn't require insurers to restore canceled coverage.

She says all it really does is acknowledge he can't fulfill his promise that if you like your health plan, you can keep it.
