White House delays employer mandate requirement until 2015
Washington Post ^ | July 2, 2013 | Sarah Kliff

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.

Exactly what I was discussing with a friend of mine.

They are pushing the failure past the election.

With House elections every two years, this could be delayed forever. This is going to collapse into itself. IMO

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Refunds!

Oh no no no, that would be far too complex and would only "contribute to the confusion."

How about the next POTUS?

“How can you change a bill that was passed in the Legislature and upheld by the Supreme Court?”

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?
