“The only Americans the Obama administration’s delay will help is Democratic politicians who voted for Obamacare, because it delays disclosure of some of the law’s most insidious effects for 2015 until after the election," Alexander, the ranking member on the Senate health committee, said in a statement. "This legislation would stop the administration from playing politics with Americans’ health care, and ensure that families will know what the costs will be well before the exchanges open.”

Alexander and Enzi are both running for re-election in 2014 and facing primary challengers.

Administration officials have insisted that the decision was not politically motivated, and the bill is unlikely to go anywhere in the Democratic-controlled Senate.
