My Comment: Fox news announced that I believe it was the House that voted to delay both the employer mandate and the individual mandate today. What a mess they’ve made.
Obamacare was supposed to go so well, we were told.
The mandates. The long-term care insurance. The Medicaid expansion. All going swimmingly, right?
Only in the minds of Harry Reid and the bureaucrats at Health and Human Services (HHS).
Despite a host of delays, legal challenges, and complete implementation failures, the Senate Majority Leader says “Obamacare has been wonderful for America.” The Administration says it’s simply implementing the law “in a careful, thoughtful manner.”
And right after the Administration announced it was delaying Obamacare’s employer mandate—one of its main provisions—HHS released a video saying Obamacare is “ON SCHEDULE.”
The House is voting today on whether to put the employer mandate delay into law and whether to delay the individual mandate as well, which would require every American to purchase government-approved health insurance. It, like the employer mandate, was supposed to take effect on January 1, 2014.
Yes, it would seem Obamacare is just falling apart. And the Administration is in denial.
