And disastrous for the left, because Obama has yet again moved out the Employer Mandate (not to guys going on a date) of Obamacare. From the article:
For the second time in a year, the Obama administration is giving certain employers extra time before they must offer health insurance to almost all their full-time workers. Under new rules announced Monday by Treasury Department officials, employers with 50 to 99 workers will be given until 2016 — two years longer than originally envisioned under the Affordable Care Act — before they risk a federal penalty for not complying.
Companies with 100 workers or more are getting a different kind of one-year grace period. Instead of being required in 2015 to offer coverage to 95 percent of full-time workers, these bigger employers can avoid a fine by offering insurance to 70 percent of them next year.
How the administration would define employer requirements has been one of the biggest remaining questions about the way the 2010 health-care law will work in practice — and has sparked considerable lobbying. By providing the dual phase-ins for employers of different sizes, administration officials have sought to lighten the burden on the small share of affected employers that have not offered insurance in the past.
The pissed off unions, the scared democrat politicians, and the “Clinton for 2016″ campaign must all be knocking the rubes at the WH down to get them do this and avert disaster. Of course, I am not going to bother to point out that the WH has no authority to change law and I bet the media will not remember this until it is a republican in the WH and (s)he tries it for the first time. And even the WaPo points out that this is blatantly to avoid the damage it will cause:
As word of the delays spread Monday, many across the ideological spectrum viewed them as an effort by the White House to defuse another health-care controversy before the fall midterm elections. The new postponements won over part, but not all, of the business community. And they caught consumer advocates, usually reliable White House allies, by surprise, particularly because administration officials had already announced in July that the employer requirements would be postponed from this year until 2015.
The right thing to do is to chuck this piece of shit legislation and start over, but the left will never let that happen, because the agenda is to cripple our healthcare system as it exists and leave all of us with no option but to accept government controlled single payer. We are being fucked over by the assholes that pretend they care and want to help, and too many people are just not bright enough to catch on. That would require they stop letting their envy, greed, and sloth control their thinking.
