So a key component of Obamacare, the employer mandate, is going to be delayed being implemented until 2015 so that there won’t be this massive blow to the economy the Democrats will get blamed for just before the 2014 election.
I don’t know how you can positively spin this. This awesome Obamacare that everyone is supposed to love is just way too scary to actually go ahead and implement. And you think just delaying it will blunt Republican attacks on it? “Make sure to elect more Republicans, or Obamacare is actually going to be implemented. And it’s obviously going to be awful because Obama himself is scared of it.”
I don’t know what we expected though when we had a bunch of idiots in Congress shove through a massive health care law that none of them read or understood. It’s just taken three years for them to begin to realize how stupid that is and that they’re mantra of, “Eventually, everyone is going to love it!” is not happening. Have you talked to the HR department of businesses these days? No one understands exactly what Obamacare will mean for their business; they just know it’s going to hurt.
Anyway, did you know the president could just unilaterally decide to delay implementing a law? If I’m elected president in 2016, that will be my policy for like every law. Then again, maybe there will be a vote. Perhaps it could be an annual tradition — the annual delaying of Obamacare. It will be a yearly reminder that no matter how bad things are, it could be worse.
