“It is better to do this right than fast.” said spokesman Adam Jentleson.

Did that apply when they were voting for it? NO.

Does that apply to the immigration vote? NO.

FAST is good since it gives no one time to read the bill. But when it is crashing, then slow is better so they can slip it past the next election.

I guess they couldn’t get the millions legalized fast enough to replace the employees that would require coverage.

When even the NFL says “we won’t bend over for this”, you know it’s a loser.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, who this week received a Democratic opponent in his 2014 reelection effort, used the delay to again call for “repeal and replace.”

I'd only favor that if the replacement included mandatory death panels for every elected Democrat over age 60.

Otherwise, I'd prefer "repeal and bury".

The GOP could take both houses without breaking a sweat in 2014 if the House were to mount a serious effort over the next year to repeal/defund Obamacare.

You gotta wonder why they won't.

Americans with half a brain to the GOP: stop gloating and repeal this monster.

Does the House have the purse strings?

Well, start zeroing out departments, OCare and the like.

Unfort. that will kill the smoke/mirrors that EVERYTHING gov’t is ‘needed’ and thus cannot have a ‘balanced budget’; but I digress.

It appears the GOP, except for a few, are quite happy to only worry about winning re-election and their perks. They sure as hell haven’t listened to their constituents in quite some time.

Maybe this year will be the bat across the cranium to wake some people up that the GOP/DEM are NOT your ‘friends’ and should not be elected.

Boy, am I tired of that cop-out already.

Judge Roberts...NSA
Rubio...NSA
Judas...NSA

The fact is, most people vote for the letter after their name than they ever do with picking up a paper, clicking on a link and RESEARCHING/VETTING the candidates.

Proof? Any number of ‘man on the street’ segments. Right may be a bit more plugged-in, but most only care about E.T. Tonight, sports, etc.

Isn’t it illegal to do this? Let it start so people will feel the pain of it. IS the GOP stupid or something?

To answer your questions in order: If anyone but Obama did it, yes. I agree with you. Yes to both.

LOL... it's not illegal if Obama does it. /s

Now that some government drones have actually read parts of the bill and thousands of pages of compliance regs have been written they're finally having an "oops" moment and understand that people will realize all the promises were blatant lies. Can't have that happening just before the mid-term elections.

I don’t understand why the GOP is gloating. Obama will have bamboozled them again if he gets away with delaying the mandate. The question for Obama is “Why?” Ask him “why are you delaying this, Carney?”

Not do I. The GOP seems to think voters will be thankful the Non-Affordable Care Act has been delayed. Instead, the 47% (plus) will be angry at them for delaying the fulfillment of the "promises". They do not yet understand and never will until it starts to hurt them.

Exactly...I still can't believe a person as stupid as Pelosi is making the statement she did could be elected Speaker, even being the Rats elected her.

They need to make sure Obama and the dems obey the law. PERIOD.

The only way the sheeple will know the law is broken and needs to be killed is if they understand the pain we all have been saying it will cause.

Once again...the GOP is looking to play politics instead of looking out for the best interest of the country.

If Boehner had even one ball, he’d immediately introduce legislation to completely de-fund 0bmamcare and the implementation thereof.

Somebody needs to send a couple of cases of Huggies over to “Politico”. The ones with the 25 lb. load limit.

Wouldn't be big enough. You can't stuff 50lb of "politico" in a 25lb sack.

The precedent has been set . . . we now will have annual delays in the implementation of ObamaCare which effectively repeals it without repealing it.

Stop gloating and take action... empower the people to ignore the personal mandate, and the requirement to file said fact with the IRS. Shut It Down.

I hear you!!!

My family’s health insurance rates have skyrocketed, we lost Empire Blue Cross Blue shield(my husbands company pulled it) so we couldn’t keep our insurance even though we wanted to, our new insurance sucks because we have had to lay out tons of money for tests that used to be covered, the $2500 cap on our FSA account killed us(it’s gone already I have 3 kids)so we have been suffering over this for quite a while. This latest installment is hardly a victory for the GOP. I say to them, grow a spine and get rid of this monster we call Obamacare. Otherwise, shut up!!!

Sorry for your delima, I’m glad all mine are grown but prob are in the same boat! Is fortunate that AR. has AR Kids which insures any kid that does not have it. Is what we used the Tobacco deal on.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Was there Language in this bill that allows the stipulations to be changed at the drop of the hat?
Who all are allowed to change regulations. I would think If Obama can change this law any member of government may do the same. Hey Boehner Just file A the whole thing!

I don't know

I do know the most common phrase is "The Secretary shall" so it seems like the head of HHS has all the dictatorial power in this bill.

Just an impression without reading the whole damn thing.
