The federal government Monday announced yet another delay in Obamacare's rules. It will now exempt companies employing between 50 and 100 full-time workers from complying with the mandate to offer employees affordable health insurance by another year, until 2016.

Companies that have 100 or more full-time workers, defined as employees who work more than 30 hours per week, will have to begin complying with the mandate to offer such coverage in 2015 or face financial penalties of up to $3,000 per worker.
Officials Monday said that the delay in the Obamacare mandate will affect 50 percent of the businesses that were supposed to be complying by 2015. Those officials could not answer how many workers would be affected by the delay.

However, those officials also took pains to note that the so-called employer mandate to offer affordable health insurance to workers does not affect 96 percent of the employers in the U.S., because they have fewer than 50 full-time employees.
"We've gotten a lot of requests to give some more time to some small businesses that would otherwise be subject to this, and we're responding to that by addressing these businesses," a senior U.S. Treasury official told reporters when asked the rationale for the delay.

"We think a phase-in approach is a way to administer the law better, and enhance overall compliance with the law."

In fact, last summer the Obama administration summarily delayed the implementation of the employer mandate for all businesses with more than 50 full-time workers from 2014 until 2015. That delay was greeted by yowls from Republicans in Congress who objected to the administration making such a change without congressional approval.

Sweet deal for for the uninsured workers, staying on the free gov. plans. But we can still get insurance on our own. Gotta love imperial lawless dictators, another EO.! .

So what does this mean for Obama's theft victims?
Gee, The same thing now. But wouldn't mind they double $3,000 to $6,000 in 2016. Any company that employee 100 plus needs to cover health insurance to some point, as the taxpayer are on the hook for long term liabilities they abuse.

$600,000 can cover the people they won't, got no problem with this. They cover 225,000 to 300,000 min. in payroll a month, they have the cash.

So instead of answering my question, your going to post this jumbled up mess of words. Figures.

The delay action was very predictable (and had been predicted).

The fallout from the chaos of the ACA Employer Mandate was the last thing the Democrats needed going into the midterm elections.

Smart political move. Not sure it's entirely legal.....
