The Treasury Department says it will delay penalties for large employers who fail to provide workers with health insurance, after being inundated by questions from the business community about the finer points of the health-care overhaul. The requirements were initially scheduled to begin when the bulk of the health-care law takes effect next year, but the administration now will wait until 2015 before enforcing mandatory employer and insurer reporting guidelines.

    I think the Democrats (but probably not Obama) are finally realizing what this is going to do to our economy and realize they would get HAMMERED in the 2014 mid-terms if they don’t delay this. Better to keep some seats in Congress and delay destroying the country until 2015.

    Is there actually a provision in the law that allows for arbitrary enactment or enforcement? I doubt it. Some lawyers need to investigate and bring suit if not. Let the leftists reap what they have sowed.

    Wise move my President, he wants to make sure everyone understands the new laws, and win the House and Senate in 2014, as Conservatives are in a civil war over who is a real conservative.

    Terry, that’s a bunch of BS. Democrats faced losing every single seat up for grabs in the mid-terms if the employer mandate was enforced. The confusion clearly lies with the Democrats; not one Republican voted for this economy killing legislation and they have tried 37 times to date to repeal Obamacare. Conservatives haven’t been confused for one nanosecond.

    since they are referring to this as a tax. .. it means Obama will raise taxes every year of his 2nd term. At least the additional tax revenue will be squandered with all the rest.
