If the Federal exchange, which is funded by the Feds, is not implemented, and the state exchange is not implemented, the mandate does not apply to employers and individuals. The Fed exchanges have no funding mechanism, and spending bills must originate in the House.
However, that being said, I’m sure that the courts will weigh in. Other cases against 0-care will also be heard. But, with a little luck, this horrible law could be tied up for years until 2016 (like real ID). Meanwhile, the stupid blue states will be busy screwing themselves over with more taxes and bloated budgets. Businesses will migrate to the states that do not implement 0-care, employers will not pay the penalty, and the red states will do comparatively well.
Interesting observation, we should begin to see a shift of home owners and businesses moving to red states.
Didn't the Cryer say that "Obamacare is the law of the land"?
Can some patriots get his ear?
I have a nephew who is an actuary at a huge insurance company. Their clients are large corporations. GM for instance.
He says they have run the numbers on ObamaCare for many clients. All the clients tend to opting to accept the penalties. His company is also running the numbers for massive conversion to temporary employment.
