    This only delays the employer mandate. The individual mandate is still set to go into effect in 2014 which doesn't really make sense...the individual mandate will get delayed as well.

    It does sound like the OA finally realized that businesses are going to try and shed the expense of health insurance instead of shoulder the expense for Obamacare.

    At what point do the liberals here come clean?This is just a ploy for the elections. Everyone knows this is the death of the democrat party in 2014. So lets just push it back to 2015.

    What an epic disaster.

    If Obamacare were a good thing, an accomplishment, something to be proud of... why would the sole party responsible for it not want to get it out ahead of the soonest possible set of elections?

    Maybe we can just turn Obamacare into the AMT for a new generation -- something that exists solely for Congress to argue about keeping it from happening.

    The quicker it goes into force, the quicker people will realize what a dog it is.
    If Obama wants to delay it, you can bet it is a political reason and nothing else.

    I want to know how on GOD's green Earth does the POTUS have the power to do anything at all about a LAW that is already enacted?

    Who gave him the Constitutional power to even intervene with this LAW? He cannot just change that LAW to suit his every whim, because it's not a LAW if he can manipulate that LAW with exemptions, and delays whenever he feels like it.

    Why doesn't the House bring this fact up before the SCOTUS? Sue for clarity, and control, of Congressional powers?

    Gallup reported last week that 43% of the uninsured remain unaware that they're required to obtain coverage.

    There are a lot of surprises still to come, and the impact on Election 2014 could be interesting.

    Can you imagine something like an Olympic sporting event being postponed for a period of time? The athletes train, they're on a schedule, they discipline themselves specifically for the timing of a certain day and.....oooops, so sorry....wait a bit and we'll "move forward." Do the folks administering this not understand that they've just levied another tax on American businesses by having them stop, consult, review, interview and learn about the AHCA in anticipation for January 2014? This isn't a mid-term that you can slide to another week for goodness sakes - these are people's lives and businesses' investments and there's a cost to all of this - starting with compliance. This cataclysmic cluster-flop has had very little positive from the get go (Long term care portion shut down because it wasn't actuarially sound, exemptions, now postponement of the mandate)..Geez, for a group that can campaign so skillfully they really suck at governing.

    Playing politics with people's health. Maybe they haven't finished reading the bill yet.

    I love the NE Senate candidate Sasse's retort which labelled Obamacare as now being a living, breathing document. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Then why is the individual mandate still set to go in effect for 2014?

    I think the OA will chicken out and delay the individual mandate as well for election purposes because we can't tax the poor while these evil business owners get a free ride now can we? I mean we have to make sure these evil corporations pay their fair share don't we?

    I think this delay has more to do with the OA finally realizing more businesses will drop health insurance as opposed to pick up the tab for Obamacare which was one of the ways Obamacare was supposed to be funded.

    They will never come clean. They want you to pay for their health insurance because it is not fair you have it but others don't.
