This shit must be so bad…

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.

    SECTION 1.

    All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.

    SECTION 7.

    All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other Bills.

    Every bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a law, be presented to the President of the United States; if he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the objections at large on their journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the bill, it shall be sent, together with the objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a law. But in all such cases the votes of both Houses shall be determined by yeas and nays, and the names of the persons voting for and against the bill shall be entered on the journal of each House respectively. If any bill shall not be returned by the President within ten days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the same shall be a law, in like manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their adjournment prevent its return, in which case it shall not be a law.

    Every order, resolution, or vote to which the concurrence of the Senate and House of Representatives may be necessary (except on a question of adjournment) shall be presented to the President of the United States; and before the same shall take effect, shall be approved by him, or being disapproved by him, shall be repassed by two thirds of the Senate and House of Representatives, according to the rules and limitations prescribed in the case of a bill.

    How does one justify that he is expressing his best ability to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” while completely ignoring Article 1, Sections 1 & 7? The office of President does not have the authority to grant an exemption to a law, let alone one that he himself signed into law. The law is written as such that the mandate will take effect, no ifs, ands, or buts. Is there anyone here (Liberal, Conservative, Libertarian, Martian, whatever) that thinks he has the authority to do this?

    Xetrov you fucking ungrateful heathen! Don’t you know Black Jesus is a constitutional scholar, has promised to “fundamentally transform” America, says he means well, and thus, the rules don’t apply to him? A drone has been tasked to show you how the state deals with its enemies buddy….
