Washington, D.C. – House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on the enactment of H.R. 3236, which includes the Hire More Heroes Act:

“On the first day of this Congress, the House passed the Hire More Heroes Act. When our veterans return home, Washington shouldn’t put up any roadblocks when our heroes are finding a job. However, that’s exactly what the Obamacare employer mandate does. So the House unanimously passed this bill that excludes veterans from Obamacare’s punitive employer mandate threshold if they already have health care through TRICARE or the VA. For the sake of our veterans and all the small businesses who want to hire them, I am very pleased that this legislation was signed into law today.”
