Why the mandate was really postponed


It is no surprise to me at all that the president has postponed the employer mandate portion of his Obamacare (Affordable Care Act) monstrosity until 2015. This is the part that makes employers with 50 or more employees provide those employees with a qualified health care plan or pay the fine.

Obama has delayed it for two reasons:

First, anyone that’s not either a low-information or no-information voter knew that it would be impossible to tool up and implement this mess by 2014. Beside the fact it’s unconstitutional, it was doomed before it ever got started four years ago when Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed, “We have to pass this so we can find out what’s in it.”

Since its passage, parts have been modified, adjusted and eliminated as it immediately began to collapse under its own weight. The worst part is that it has so many loopholes and ways to opt out that the very people it supposedly was aimed at helping may still not be covered by it.

It is a ridiculous document written by idealistic ignorant authors and implemented by an inept administration.

Secondly, and most importantly in my opinion, is that everyone knows this mandate will cost countless jobs, cut workers’ hours and cripple the economy. And that most definitely would hurt the liberal Democrats’ chances in the 2014 mid-term elections.

So postponing the mandate will allow the liberal election machine to continue to tell lie upon lie and sucker voters into voting Democrat one more time before full Obamacare implementation in 2015. Another masterful and tactful scheme by these thieves.

Just wait until you hear the excuses as to why this has been delayed. They will be laughable. These liberals are brilliant architects of disguise, and 51 percent of the voters fall for that crap over and over.

Obama lied when he told us all when describing the Affordable Care Act that it would be fully funded. He also lied when he said medical costs would go down as a result.

He lied when he said premiums would not increase but actually go down. He lied again when he said taxes would not go up when this was implemented.

We thought the lies couldn’t get any worse 20 years ago when Clinton claimed he didn’t inhale while smoking pot or that he didn’t have sexual relations with that woman. Obama’s lies make Clinton look like a piker.
