CANFIELD, Ohio - President Barack Obama's decision to delay the business mandate for employers to provide health insurance to full-time employees is receiving mixed reactions.

Some welcome the extra time for businesses to more fully prepare for the health law's reporting requirements.

But most Republicans, like Congressman Bill Johnson still want Obamacare to go away.

"Ohioans are going to see an 88 percent increase in their health insurance premiums because of Obamacare. Our college students are going to see a 145 to 189 percent increase so as I go up and down this parade route, I can't tell you how many times I'm hearing, 'Get rid of Obamacare,"

Congressman Johnson took part in Canfield's July 4th Parade.
