Skip to comments.White House delays employer mandate requirement until 2015
Posted on 07/02/2013 3:04:55 PM PDT by Second Amendment First
The Obama administration will not penalize businesses that do not provide health insurance in 2014, the Treasury Department announced Tuesday.
Instead, it will delay enforcement of a major Affordable Care Act requirement that all employers with more than 50 employees provide coverage to their workers until 2015.

Further breakdown (or breaking-down, as the case may be) of law and order from the executive... just by fiat, choosing to ignore law. And for all the wrong reasons: To leapfrog the next election.
100% correct, give cover to the Dems until after November 2014.
Exactly what I was discussing with a friend of mine.
They are pushing the failure past the election.
Why don’t they just delay it until the second Wednesday of November?
After the election.
With House elections every two years, this could be delayed forever. This is going to collapse into itself. IMO
BLINK - what about individual mandates?
Past the election because they know it’ll cost them votes & Congress seats!!!!!
Rats, I tell ya.
Do they mean until after the 2014 elections, no that cannot be the reason they are doing this. /end sarcasm
And yet again, the republicans will do absolutely nothing about it. Not one singe attack ad nor one single appearance on a talk show to talk about it.
The two people in America who still think ObamaCare will improve their lives must be furious.
But, but, but, Obamacare is SOOO good for us. It is even going to bring down the DEFICIT!. Why would we want to delay all of this goodness? Oh why oh why?
Those 2 people would be obummer and mooch
It’s so important to cover people that we’ve waited five years to do it. What’s another year to those without healthcare?
It’ll work, trust us.
DemocRats are shaking in their boots over the coming implosion of their ‘landmark’ legislation.
They own it, lock, stock and barrel.
Obama doesn’t want Morsi type protests against him before he flees the White House.
Those individuals will be fined.
Until after all elections or until democrats fully take over via their illegal citizens.
I would recommend all Business respect the law as written, and not bet on an 0bama waiver of a penalty.
Remember Gibson Guitar, you will never know if you are on a BOLO list
Wow. President 0bama signs 0bama into law, then SCOTUS upholds it, then 0bama decides when the law will be enforced. Impeachable offense, AGAIN. This is just as bad as overturning our immigration laws then b!tching and moaning about immigration reform.
Matt Drudge just now on Twitter: OF COURSE: Fascist gives waiver to business delaying a forced healthcare, but still demands pathetic individual submit or pay 1% of earnings
President Chickensh!t knows that his “landmark legislation” will crush his party once the LIVs get hammered with it.
Individual mandate NOT delayed...
The individual mandate will be next...
How can you change a bill that was passed in the Legislature
and upheld by the Supreme Court?
Did the Supremes give carte blanc to Obama to do as he desires?
Business is balking so individuals will take the load!
This is total insanity!
Congress better get on this and soon!
What about all the ObamaCare tax increases on medical device manufacturers, medicare surcharges, etc that have already been collected so far this year? Will Obama be providing refunds?
Since Obamacare is now the law of the land, can the Republicans take the administration to court to force Obama to enforce the law he championed? Didn’t he take an oath to uphold the law?
If the law says 2014, obamma cannot change it to a later date! The law is the law. The RATS needs to be held accountable during the 2013 elections. This is just a ploy to help the RATS.
Right the republicans are spineless! All the republicans just need to switch parties and become democrats!
I said they should this weeks ago if they want to have a chance in 2014. And if I can figured it out...
Sure. Lose in 2014 to the Republicans and they have somebody to blame for the inevitable collapse. And the media will be 100% behind them.
That's mighty blanco of them.
Is this why he went to Africa?
Doing a little reading on this and it looks like this is strategic. It gives employers more time to dump health insurance benefits so employees have to buy personally to avoid the individual mandate.
Nah, he went to Africa to bash America.
He managed to illegally push this past the 2014 elections when, I predict, the Republicans will tear him a new one.
But it pushes it a year closer to the 2016 election. He’s hurting whoever the RAT candidate for Pres will be.
We’ll have had about a year and a half of full blown nobamacare by the 2016 election. Should be interesting.
What about the individual mandate? Will all those unemployed college graduates have to get their won insurance?
Oh no no no, that would be far too complex and would only "contribute to the confusion."
Good question! If your employer doesn’t buy you insurance then you must
sounds like unequal protection under the law...
How about the next POTUS?
50 years sounds like a nice round number...
"Equal protection" being only for...well, whoever the government feels like giving it to, apparently.
What a ****ing trainwreck.
Obamacare: ideas so good, they're mandatory. Take a pain pill.
IMO, He is a despot usurper communist Muslim dictator. He gets the healthcare law he wants, then, all by himself, decides to change it, wait on some of it. He does whatever he wants with our lives. Business doesn't know what to do as he jerks them around at his whim.
I can't imagine what his fate will be after his term is over and America is destroyed. Does he claim victory and become the head of the UN? From there, he can turn the world into an Islamic world with homosexuals running each country. God will have to intervene, but when?
“If the law says 2014, obamma cannot change it to a later date!”
He just did. No law is enforced unless he wants it enforced.
