That sounds like a prime reason for the T.E.A. Party to take the senate in 2014.

If the damn RNC will stay out of the way.

EVERY FReeper knows that this is to minimize damage to their 2014 candidates and the possibility that the Republicans take control of the Senate in 2014!!

Talk about OBVIOUS!!! Team 0bama knows 0bamacare SUCKS, otherwise he wouldn't DELAY implementation of it. Is he going to delay it AGAIN in order to get through the 2016 Presidential election? LOL!

We just couldn’t wait to pass it.

SCOTUS didn’t see jack wrong with it.

But it can be delayed a couple of years just because?

Oh yeah . . . businesses absolutely love and long for uncertainty drawn out over very long periods of time so that politicians that hate them are given an advantage for election. That is just great for the business climate and the economy . . .

From your first link, the delay is very limited in scope:

As reported in the Wall Street Journal, "For transitional purposes we have proposed that in 2014, a state may elect to have businesses choose one plan to offer employees, and in 2015 employees will be able to choose from the full range of plans in the marketplace," said Fabien Levy...

Not that huge in the overall scheme of things.

I say implement it NOW lets see how people like it before 2014

This is what I have been saying. Let's go Alynsky on them. We need to demand that it be implemented on time, exchanges in every single state, the exact same coverage i get now and at the same or less cost.

The system is unsustainable for 2 years.

When the public sees what a disaster it is we can step in with capitalist answers.

It is going to interesting to see how this affects the costs. The delay means no penalties for the employers, which will cause a loss of revenue. At the same time, individuals will be mandated to get insurance or pay a fine. How can they delay the employers’ penalties without impacting the individual mandate?

The delay will apply to the states in which the federal government will administer Exchanges, and makes the requirement optional for state-run Exchanges. The administration cited operational challenges as the reason for the delay.
