And he didn't even make the trains run on time.
The SCOTUS didn’t break up the law in their ruling. If he attempts it, I would suspect it goes straight back to the Supremes on a fast track and I have doubts that even Roberts will try a cheap jedi card trick again.
What about all the business who have had to beg, borrow and steal the money for all the expensive software upgrades to deal with ZEROcare on the original timeline?
Anyone can read it here.
Obama can do whatever he damn well wants. He’s dictator.
What about employees who have already sustained damage (had their hours cut) in lost wages?
Let’s give the left a taste of their own medicine, incrementalism! Today we got this train wreck delayed. Now let’s work toward it’s unconditional repeal.
I’m celebrating by putting a big-ass firecracker under 2600 symbolic pages of obamacare.
So when the GOP takes over the Senate and retains the House, Hussein can blame them when the whole moronic concept goes south..
I guess this means that the 16,000 IRS agents won’t be needed for a while?
F U B O!
This is a terrific question. What about the individual mandate and the exchanges that are supposed to be available this October?
How much has it cost to prepare for the roll out (within the nearest $100 billion will be close enough for my mind)? The states have been soaking up federal funds for the exchanges all year, and now...poof - delayed. Who in the hell is going to pay all of the agents and employees that have been added to get this done? Do they get to sit around with their thumbs in their asses for a year - not that it would be much difference?
politics,,that’s all...I doubt they are actually hearing the rumblings of disapproval from the people on this,,it’s all politics
I guess that sucka photo you posted was from someone who’ll sue us?
Do they get to sit around with their thumbs in their asses for a year - not that it would be much difference?
They’re pulling out all the stops to win the House in 2014. I wonder what figure the Dems put on donations to delay it.
Of course if the Rs put a mandate on individuals and didn’t on businesses the media would tear them up... but the media will just say good things about this.
Rush, in an interview on Fox an don his show admonished the GOP to go after Obama on Obamacare — it’s the most important issue. And, low and behold, the Obama Administration immediately removes the employer mandate. Talk about hitting a nerve!
The law as written allows the pres or HHS secretary (or whoever is supposed to set the enforcement date) to select the date of enforcement. Since they haven’t announced a date yet, they are free to change it (per the ACA provisions regarding this).
This is an obvious ploy for mid-term election votes as others have said though...
According to this report ... only postpones employer mandate. Individual mandate still there
No, I posted it before, and it’s still in my roster. I guess they didn’t like the “sucka”.
TYRANNY: “Senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett cast the decision as part of an effort to simplify data reporting requirements.
She said since enforcing the coverage mandate is dependent on businesses reporting about their workers access to insurance, the administration decided to postpone the reporting requirement, and with it, the mandate to provide coverage.
We have and will continue to make changes as needed, Jarrett wrote in a White House blog post. In our ongoing discussions with businesses we have heard that you need the time to get this right. We are listening.
The House has not stopped him either. Nor have any Senators or the RNC made a stink about anything Unconstitutional.
In the scheme of things, what’s one more offense when we gets away with murder?
“...He can do - literally - anything he wants.
No one has the courage to call him on it.....”
Or course. They’re are scared spitless of PRISM because they’ve all got dirt. He has em right where he wants em.
Republicans, you have a GREAT ISSUE here....instead of kissing the Clown's arse on immigration, how about fighting against him?
>> Does that delay the taxes that go with it?
>> Theyre pulling out all the stops to win the House in 2014.
And the GOP by way of immigration is working hard at losing 2014.
Employers need another year to fire people to accommodate Obamacare.
If our side has half a brain we can really use this to show people what obamacare really is—”impossible to do”and unworkable.
This adds a whole new meaning to most transparent administration in history.
Looks like the regieme is finding out what's in it.
I’m only surprised that the obamites didn’t drop this news at 5pm on July 3rd. That’s SOP for them..
Valerie Jarrett does NOT listen to business. She dictates terms to business.
They delayed this thing for the obvious reason; the midterms. They’re scared as hell.
Seriously? How obvious can you be?
If Obama can do this, could not a future president delay the mandate arbitrarily until, what? 2075? Could they not do this for other laws? Immigration reform? A carbon tax? The Republicans should go to court and MAKE him implement it as written. If there is a disaster, let it be on Boy Obozo’s watch.
The authority of the executive branch to delay a piece of legislation (that wasn’t written with executive options for delays) is as constitutionally murky as unilaterally speeding it up.
it will be 20 years before all of the lawless actions of this regime finally work their way throught the courts.
I looked it up and we all need to get the information out on comment threads and forums, anywhere people are talking about this latest boondoggle.
Obamacare legislation, Section 1514 (d) on page 140
d) EFFECTIVE DATEThe amendments made by this section shall apply to periods beginning after December 31, 2013.
It is NOT up to the Secretary of HHS.
It is NOT up to Obama’s whims.
As far as I can tell, this is a complete collapse of our form of government. The executive branch just took control of all power of the federal government and is making rulings without Constitutional authority.
When will we finally return to the rule of law rather than the Rule of Obama???
“This is a terrific question. What about the individual mandate and the exchanges that are supposed to be available this October?”
So this just means that companies over 50 employees could opt for no insurance benefits for full timers or non- qualified health plans that would not cover the individual mandate requirement. If exchanges are available, I still think that a lot of employers will still dump their employees on to the exchanges.

The will of the Fuhrer is the law.
I've run out of words to describe my anger towards this commie.
Or make sure the pain isn’t felt until a Republican is in office in 2016.
We employ ourselves
And I must admit, I even occasionally fire myself. Always seem to rehire myself though.
Makes one wonder what flavor of excrement has hit the impeller in order for O/Val to play the delay card. Imagine the degree of tooth knashing and hand wringing.
Hopefully, the Reps will be looking at the legality of all of this. Once the administration issues an official pronouncement, we should be able to see what part of the law they are citing that gives them the ability to change the implementation dates.

Good news for businesses. I think they had too many lawsuits against them from Catholic and Christian businesses.
