This Just In. Obamacare Screwed Up. Who Knew (Sarc)

The Obama administration is  postponing for one year the requirement that businesses cover their workers under Obamacare.

The administration said late Tuesday that the move recognized that the reporting requirements – the steps businesses have to take to show they were complying with the rules — were complex and they would try to streamline them over the next year.

There will be no penalties the first year on businesses that don’t cover workers. Small businesses, with fewer than 50 workers, were already exempt from that rule. Most large businesses do cover employees now.

( Read FUBAR, Look it up)  😆

The move does not affect the individual mandate – the requirement that most Americans get  insurance. And it doesn’t delay the new marketplaces where people and small businesses can sign up for coverage starting in October.

Just curious has anyone heard anything about it? How’s it work, who’s eligible. I mean I think it goes into effect in Oct. And it is July. July, Aug, Sept, Oct…Hmm

“The Administration is announcing that it will provide an additional year before the ACA [Affordable Care Act} mandatory employer and insurer reporting requirements begin.  This is designed to meet two goals.  First, it will allow us to consider ways to simplify the new reporting requirements consistent with the law.  Second, it will provide time to adapt health coverage and reporting systems while employers are moving toward making health coverage affordable and accessible for their employees,” the Treasury Department said in a blog post.”

Most big businesses already cover their workers, Treasury noted.

The Treasury Department, which enforces the employer requirements, announced the  news in a blog post late Tuesday afternoon. The policy change was initially reported by Bloomberg News.

  1. If the requirement is for most Americans, who are the most and who is exempt?

     
  2. Shoot, I just want it to disappear all together…

     
  3. I believe this is ONLY to try and save the Democrats in the 2014 election.

     
    • Yup… yawn

    • Gingercake,
      You have it exactly right. The individual mandate is bad enough, but if the employer mandate kicked in on it’s initially scheduled date the number of employee hours cut and job losses would guarantee a sweeping defeat of the dems in 2014 by an outraged populace.

      By pushing back the effective date to 2015 (after) the midterms the POS”s administration is betting that most of the electorate will, having not felt the full effect of this travesty of legislation before the election will not understand that the 2014 midterms will be their last chance to throw out the socialist architects of this power grab thus allowing them remain in office.

      And if the current crop of social engineering democrats are allowed to stay in office we will find the full implementation of Obamacare waiting right around the corner to begin the process of destroying our free market Republic, which has been the intended goal of the Obama administration all along.

      That being said, also consider the POS”s recent statements regarding the EPA and their regulation of CO2 as a hazardous gas. This flashback to his 2008 statement regarding coal fired power plants “under my plan electricity rates will necessarily skyrocket” makes it painfully obvious that B Hussein Obama has an agenda, an agenda that bodes ill for a free America.

    • You got it.

       
  4. What an impending disaster for America Obamacare is.

    And the really sad part is, it doesn’t have to happen if some congress critters would grow some stones.

  5. How do we spell ‘FAILURE’?
    ObamamamaCare!

     
  6. Read FUBAR….

    I have not read that word in a VERY long time!! LOL

     
  7. First and second reasons were mentioned, but I dare say there is a third. The third consideration is that the delay will get the POS’s administration through this fall’s election cycle and keep more of his minions (useful idiots) in office by appeasing some businesses.
