Isn’t This Politically Convenient … Obama Administrations Delays the Obamacare Employer Mandate Until After 2014 Midterm Elections
For all those who still think that Obamacare is about healthcare, think again … Barack Obama and Democrats playing politics with Obamacare.
Even Barack Obama knows that Obamacare is a train wreck. The Hill is reporting that the Obama Administration announced that they will delay the implementation of the employer mandate of Obamacare and will not penalize businesses next year if they fail to provide workers with health insurance. Conveniently enough, guess what occurs next year … the 2014 midterm elections. That is correct, the Obama administration is going to delay the part of Obamacare that deals with the confusing and job killing part of Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation until 2015 after the 2014 mid term elections. But of course they are doing it for you America, not the fact that this would cause employers to lay off and cut employees hours. Obviously Democrats do not want that as an anchor around their necks heading into the midterm elections.
Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) released the following statement in the wake of the new, “This further confirms that even the proponents of ObamaCare know it will hurt jobs, decrease economic growth and make it harder for families to have access to quality and affordable health care.” Cantor is correct, it all but confirms that the Obama realizes that Obamacare is a job killing disaster what would destroy Democrats in the upcoming elections. However, there is nothing to change what is going to happen, Obama is just looking to kick the job killing down the road until after the midterms. WAKE UP AMERICA … DO NOT FALL FOR THIS AGAIN!!!
The ObamaCare employer mandate requiring businesses to provide their workers with health insurance will be delayed by a year, the administration said Tuesday in a stunning announcement.
Delaying the requirement until 2015 is an enormous victory for businesses that had lobbied against the healthcare law.
It also means that one of healthcare reform’s central requirements will be implemented after the 2014 midterm elections, when the GOP is likely to use the Affordable Care Act as a vehicle to attack vulnerable Democrats.
In a White House blog post, senior adviser Valerie Jarrett wrote that the administration believed it needed to give employers “more time to comply with the new rules.”
The Republican Study Committee released this statement following the employer mandate news:
Republican Study Committee Chairman Steve Scalise today released the following statement after the Obama administration announced it would delay the implementation of the employer mandate, a key provision of the president’s healthcare law.
“While the President publicly criticizes House Republicans for fighting to repeal Obamacare, he has been privately trying to waive portions of the law for select groups,” Scalise said. “We have been pointing out for years that Obamacare will be a disaster for hard-working families, and today President Obama finally agreed that this law is not ready for prime time by delaying the employer mandate. The president’s decision today is further proof that we need to fully repeal this failed law. We stand ready to work on a bipartisan solution to lower health care costs and fix the real problems without the unworkable mandates and taxes in the President’s health care law.”
What a joke, so businesses get a one year pass on paying the penalty for insuring individuals, but individuals are still forced to have insurance or face the consequences from the
