(New York Post) Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.) said he smells a “big, fat rat” in the Obama administration’s delay on a key part of its healthcare bill.

“I smell a big fat rat. Not just a little rat,” Gingrey said on Fox News on Friday.

The congressman, a doctor and leading ObamaCare critic who’s running for the Senate, said the move to delay a mandate requiring large employers to provide healthcare insurance until 2015, rather than 2014, was done solely to give red-state Democrats cover in the 2014 midterm elections.
