employer mandates section of Obamacare delayed
The Obama Administration today declared that it will not enforce the employer mandates for health care coverage until 2015. A break for business, a loss for labor, a loss for insurance companies, yada yada yada. The usual; politics defined as the picking of winners and losers (contrast with sports where there are winners and losers too but nobody picks them, we hope). Now when the USSC upheld the mandatory purchase section of the Affordable Care Act...now that was something...that was a signal of a new day in American politics. Calls to mind the Eastern saying, 'may you live in interesting times.'
