Obama administration to further delay healthcare mandate
Los Angeles Times ^ | February 10, 2014 | Noam Levy

Posted on 02/10/2014 1:19:42 PM PST by abb

WASHINGTON – The Obama administration will phase in a requirement that large employers provide their workers with health benefits in 2015 and 2016, offering businesses more relief from the so-called employer mandate in the president’s health law.

Under regulations issued Monday, only employers with more than 100 full-time workers will be subject to fines in 2015 unless they offer coverage.

The requirement that all employers with more than 50 full-time employees provide health benefits or pay fines – which was supposed to begin in 2014 under the Affordable Care Act – will not take effect until 2016.

It’s like having President Simon Sez.

This flippancy was one thing when a medieval King would issue contradicting royal decress. You send a copy to your Dukes and Earls and Barons or what have you, and they post it on the castle door, or send out a fleet of town criers.

But now we have computer programs to rewrite, inserts in the backs of law books that will be fatter than the law books, and all in contradiction to the law as it is written.

Obama has a pen and a phone. He doesn’t need the law. What a joke.

I guess if it’s HIS health law he can change it any time he wishes./sarc

I feel sorry for small businesses with 100-125 employees. The owner will get together with his CPA, HR, COO, and atty, and fire 26 people to be rid of this monstrosity for a year.

Obamacare employer mandate kills jobs but raising the min wage creates them?

Any Republicans in congress see the irony here?

Well, I don’t like 0bama playing Fast and Furious with Obamacare, but I’m glad current employees retain their current health care coverage. Bottom line, it’s average people who get hurt in the political squeeze.

Conservatives were decrying all these Obamacare rules.

Democrats said conservatives were wrong...Obamacare would be great.

Now Obama is changing EVERY ONE of the things the GOP warned about. In other words, conservatives were RIGHT!!

So whatever crazy, stupid and/or illegal thing the Obama administration might tell me to do is now legal?

If, for example, I follow Joe Biden's advice, and, "if there’s ever problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out, put that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house", I can just inform the police (and SWAT team) that they can't arrest me, because the Obama administration told me to do it?

Just a cheap attempt to provide cover for vulnerable Senate Democrats in the November elections.

we all knew that the mandate will be moved past elections and he should follow suit by granting waivers for the individual mandate penalty too because you know that’ll be enacted before April 15th.

Well thank God we have elections every two years! This mandate can be delayed forever or until Obama’s out of office, whichever comes first.

Suspending a law for political reasons to influence the outcome of elections is blatantly illegal.

so at what point will there be a court case concerning equal protection?

The more they delay for some Americans and not others - the more ILLEGAL this “law” becomes.

Over the years, reading this article or that book, I wondered what it must have felt like to live in a banana republic, where laws changed almost daily on the whim of the dictator.

Now I know.

I don’t suppose Congress gives a damn that it is being made more and more irrelevant with each of these incidents.

“The requirement that all employers with more than 50 full-time employees provide health benefits or pay fines – which was supposed to begin in 2014 under the Affordable Care Act – will not take effect until 2016.”

Wasn’t that supposed to start - directly stated in the law - at the end of 2013?

...I’m glad current employees retain their current health care coverage.

Will they? It will still be against the law, as written, for insurance companies to write those policies. Will their corporate lawyers tell them "sure, go ahead and write those policies King 0bongo says it's OK?"

One of the reasons the IRS had to add those 15,000 attorneys and accountants was because the law is like an amoeba. It changes daily.

Since SCOTUS declared the law to be a Constitutional tax, do we even know if the law today is the same law that SCOTUS reviewed?

Obama has changed it so much on his own, so why should we presume that the SCOTUS ruling is still valid, since the law then is no longer the law now?
