Liberals insisted that such arguments were false if not beneath contempt, but then all of a sudden the White House implicitly endorsed the other side. Now the new delay arrives amid a furious debate about jobs after a damning Congressional Budget Office report last week, only this time with liberals celebrating ObamaCare's supposed benefits to the job market.
Well, which is it? Either ObamaCare is ushering in a worker's paradise, in which case by the White House's own logic exempting businesses from its ministrations is harming employees. Or else the mandate really is leading business to cut back on hiring, hours and shifting workers to part-time as the evidence in the real economy suggests.
By now ObamaCare's proliferating delays, exemptions and administrative retrofits are too numerous to count, most of them of dubious legality. The text of the Affordable Care Act specifically says when the mandate must take effect"after December 31, 2013"and does not give the White House the authority to change the terms.

Just as Obama continued Bush policies in the WOT, so Obama now has to reform his legislation because jobs are vanishing, people are losing their insurance, quality in health care is eroding, Medicare is being cut, the mandate is a tax, the the lack of ability and experience in the WH caused the website to be a joke.
Obama is "triangulating" like Clinton had to in order to survive.
New Rule. Every time someone says that The Bozo is acting outside his authority, they must list every challenge to his actions whether the challenge is in or out of the courts.
