Why would a GOP plan include delaying Obamacare until AFTER the 2014 elections?

Delaying it, unlike the defunding option currently underway, would actually be the better near-term approach to stopping it. Delaying it includes everything, even those parts not covered by the CR - the most critical of which is the subsidies which start on Jan. 1. Once you start giving people money, you'll never be able to stop it.

The biggest near-term economic impact of Obamacare is the uncertainty cloud hanging over employers' and health care proessionals' heads. A delay doesn't alleviate that - if anything, it unfortunately enhances that.

Delay is actually not a bad plan in this case. The GOP doesn't have enough power to completely repeal it until at least 2017 (hopefully, though I suppose a miraculous 2014 showing could let them hold the entire government hostage until Obama yields), so any effort to slow it down - especially the subsidies - is a good idea.

Then we have a difference in "tactics." The only way to fully repeal this will be when the full weight of it comes to bear on the economy and the people who voted for it. There is enough media interference being run and that will be run...to fly CAP for this. If you can't stop it now...it's best to rip the bandage off and reveal the full festering sore it is.

Sometimes people need to be taught a hard lesson...and not protected from the consequences of their actions. We'll agree to disagree on this on.
