Obama Postpones ObamaCare To 2015 Because He Knows It Will Be A Disaster

  

A Treasury Department official who declined to be named confirmed to MailOnline on Tuesday that the Obama administration will not begin enforcing employer mandates in the Obamacare law until 2015 – one year later than originally planned – and pinned that change of direction on a combination of politics and economic realities in the marketplace.

    Obamacare is unworkable and has turn into a nightmare for the Administration and the Democrats politically. To say that they’ve placed themselves between a rock and a hard place is putting it mildly.

  • JBKonya104

    A DISASTER FOR BUSINESSES..NO….OR THE TRUTH – A DISASTER TO HIS RE-ELECTION?

  • Guest

    A complete Disaster preventing a Disaster?..

  • Charlie

    What a buffoon!

  • DefendConstitution

    The law was passed by both houses of Congress with the date of implementation and all the fees and taxes. How can bho decide not to enforce the law? The president does not have that authority and as un-popular as the law is, Congress should force implementation in accordance with the law. Selective enforcement is not Constitutional. Do your job Congress, stop being pussies.

    • stainless

      Just in case you have not noticed, our “fearless leader” and his democrat minions have chosen not to enforce many laws that they ALL took an oath to uphold! The current immigration laws stand out above all others. Do your job! Pay attention!

  • oilman

    OK rebubs. Let’s defund this trash legislation.

    • fort9erdon

      With Boehner at the head of the House, NO BALLS BOEHNER?? Surely you jest!

  • jb80538

    obamacare is a law that is supposed to be imposed in 2014. LAW That he is delaying ILLEGALLY. Not that any of us want it at all. I think he should go to jail for a law violation.

    • vistacharlie

      If they decide to do this legally then congress will have to amend the law.
      Because they do not have all the congressional support they used to have the
      democrats will have to agree to make some other required changes.

      My favorite requirement would be for Obamacare to apply to congress.

      • fort9erdon

        It does. The courts ruled that Congress does NOT have the authority to “exempt” themselves!

    • joepotato

      The Nazi-care mandate is nothing short of an extortion racket foisted on infidels and other non Muzzie groups (Muslims are exempt)… Why does O’Soebama break his own law that he illegally signed into existence? Because he can, that’s why… The O’Soebama regime has violated and ignored so many laws… and was even in contempt of court ( over the Gulf thing)… but the cowards in congress + the media protect his lying Indonesian Muslim A$$. Justice and the rule of law no longer apply to the elite DC scumbags, therefore, the republic must be dead… RIP – USA

  • RBlakeH

    The GOP better get off of their asses and get the word out starting now. Obama slammed every GOP member to get his re-election and now it has to be fighting fire with fire. Attack, attack, attack. Harry Reid, Schummer and the rest of the sick bastards would sell their own mother for a penny so don’t think they have any ones best interest at heart except their own. Being the nice guys like the 2012 election does not work. McCain needs to retire, his thoughts are turning to mush. Get some strong people with balls in the Congress and House.

  • tuvals

    No chit Sherlock!!!!

  • gwedem5995

    It makes me mad that theyhave had 3 years to work out all the bugs and realize it can’t be done and he is right they are waiting until after the 2014 election, hoping democrats will hold the Senate and they can gain in the House and then his next two years, will get anything they want. First off, the government never gets anything right and if you haven’t worked out all thebugs in 3 years, it needs to be scrapped and start over or leave it the way it has always been, with the government not intruding of what we had and it worked.

  • Lew

    COMMIE CARE was never meant to work! It’s all about bringing AMERICA DOWN! THIS IS B.O’s DREAM!

  • Ted Crawford

    Aside from the fact that this Law is a typically disgusting piece of Progressive Entitlement Legislation, designed to intentionally fail, my problem is this: The Verbage used in the Law is the word “SHALL” ! That word, especially in a Legal Document, allows for NO wiggle room. Should be interesting how they get around that little two letter word!

  • John Cherish

    When you look at who pushed this bill into existence ( Nancy Pelosi )you realize that it is unworkable and if it starts in 2014 or 2015 it will still be a disaster for the working people as their hours are cut to comply with the 30 hour rule but now only that the businesses are off the hook temporarily the individual is not and he will PAY what kind of BS is that. But what I really hope for is that the idiots who voted for this and the ones who did not really get to feel the pain of what has been done. Maybe then something will be done about it. In other words GET off your fat asses and start putting pressure on our elected officials NOW to scrap this piece of Sheet Bill

  • egalicki

    I think they delayed it so the democrats will have better election results and the catastrophic engagement of the plan will be after that election.

  • geneww1938

    Do not amend this ACA. Let the full impact hit in 2014. That is an election year and it just may motivate marginal voters to wake-up and remove the proponents of communism, welfare, and the dismantling of our Constitution.

  • Tony

    Professor of constitutional law my rosy red behind!! The boy is a fraud! He either hasn’t a clue how our legislative process works or he simply ignores it. I believe it to be the latter. He has already declared himself Dictator and has no intention of following the law unless it suits his agenda.
    Despicable!

  • Focus2016

    First off the law stinks and this Obamacare will be a train wreck, IMHO this was pushed off till 2014 to kinda make some news to get away from all the scandals My God we were not born yesterday “O” thinks we are children that cant think for ourselves he wants to call all the shots but he is running into lots of blockers.

    Obama Postpones ObamaCare To 2015 Because He Knows It Will Be A Disaster
    (11 Kings 7:6,7,8,9,)

    For the LORD had made the host of the Syrians to here a noise of chariots, and the noise of horses, even the noise of a great host, and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us. Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight, and left their tents, and their horses, and their asses, even the camp as it was,and fled for their life. And when these lepers came to the camp, they went into one tent, and did eat and drink, and carried thence silver, and gold, and raiment, and went and hid it; and came again, and entered into another tent, and carried thence also, and went and hid it. Then they said one to another, We do not well this day is a day of good tidings, and we hold our peace if we tarry till morning light, some mischief will come upon us; now therefore come, that we may go and tell the king”s household.

  • TheSunDidIt

    So, Congress, what laws exactly CAN HE NOT obey or implement by his imperial choice? Is it ALL of them or is it only what it looks like? At what point will you ALL make him obey ANY laws? Is there NO testosterone in the Congress at all? Sort of explains the gaying of America that you’re all voting for by not standing up to this cretin.

    • barry1817

      congress when are you going to grow a pair and tell B.O. that he can’t change the law, that he signed, as he is not a dictator but an elected person.

  • Bill

    By the constitution, the executive branch has no authority to change or make law. Only the Congress can make or change law. If Congress wanted to postpone the employer mandate, it would have done so. This president’s actions are unconstitutional.

    • fort9erdon

      Yeah, but who will do anything? The republicans?? bwa ha ha hahaha ha bwa haha!

    • southie55

      What Congress?

  • barry1817

    so tell me again how B.O. can break the law and declare that the mandates don’t go into effect.

    And tell me again, if this law was to help all, cut costs, reduce deficit, why any delay.

  • gfsomsel

    He badly needs a sedative.

  • tinytim

    Not so fast: think about it every time some thing happens its because something is up his sleeve

  • GoldenRudy

    Does Der Leader has the authority to alter a law already passed “in to law” without filing another law to amend/change the original law? Does Der Leader have that Constitutional power? Hadn’t read Bill’s comment b4 posting mine. Like minds …etc.

  • turn3

    if he is involved in it , it is a sure bet it w/b a disaster …….ROOKIE

  • Al Chemist

    It is a pity, but a lot of people will not see what Obama and his administration are doing. Some of them will vote to keep the liberals/commies in power (in 2014), and they will be shafted after the election when it is put back into Obama Care. You could call it justice if not for the fact that people who did not (and will not) vote for this crap will also be shafted.

  • Herbeat

    It Shod be overturned them!we the People tell them whit we Ned and Wont in a Healthcare system.

  • Tony

    The part they want delayed is a mandate which means mandatory. if it was not in their best interest, they would not be delaying it. Just another slight of hand by team obummer.

  • Jed54

    Everything he has done has been a disaster… other then his golf games and vacation.. He can sure have fun and spend the dough………you put could watermelon end to end and go around the world 100 times and still never break even with the cost….

  • Tony

    This trainwreck known as obamacare was upheld by the supreme court. One of the big contentions was the penalty/tax. If this is a law, how can the executive branch delay it? Congress makes laws according to our constitution. And why is congress allowing this to happen? Do they have such little respect for their responsibilities?

  • stainless

    Gee, is this not great? Business get’s off the hook, Congress get’s off the hook, but the rest of us taxpayers still get screwed! If your employer decides to give no insurance coverage you still have to get it! Or, pay a $1000.00 fine! Anybody see anything wrong with this picture? If this is not a crime, what is it? I just don’t know what to call it! Robbery? Rape? You tell me.

  • swede41

    Obamacare is a train wreck and failure just like Obama and his policies and his Muslim brotherhood

  • donl

    Obamacare is nothing more than population control, like all other communist countries. The Obama administration already knows all about YOU. Now they want to Control You, Like all other Communist Countries.

  • Mike

    Well, Obama was right about one thing… his administration is the most transparent in history. Or at least his motives are.

  • John H. Kohlenberg

    This is a set up folks. He is suspending it for one year. The elections are in 2014. NOW DO YOU GET HIS MOTIVE. Just like the 2012 election. Hide it from the people so you have a good chance to win what you want.

  • scrambo

    he suspends obamacare until 2015 cause he sees whats happening in egypt and that could be happening here…they will post pone it again too…cause what goes around comes around…

  • Mr Lucky

    That’s what the people want and voted for! You morons slept and they out manuvered and out voted you lazy gutless wonders!

  • Take 2

    Yah! The dude got caught setting up his Personal enforcement and Spying agency i.e. Federal Policing Force to circumvent State Law and Obama Care Penalty collection assassins.

  • charles17121

    We The People have a fraud and usurper sitting in the White House going by the name of barack hussein obama using a stolen social security number , forged birth certificate and forged selective service registration card to prove he is a legal sitting US President .

    We The People demand that the US Congress honor their oath to the US Constitution and remove this fraud and usurper barack hussein obama from office under Article ll Section 1 Clause 5 of the US Constitution .

  • davienne

    he’s a disaster … he needs to go NOW

  • Tonto

    Actually, by law, Obama can’t do that. So is his latest “executive order” going to be ignored and Obamacare will go forward or Obama gets another freebie and nobody takes the fag to task about breaking the law again?????

  • ZACAL

    Oh no – You mean that nice man “OBAMA” is going to make you wait one more year for HEALTHCARE insurance – bought and paid for ( by you non the less ). You see – he feels to implement it now would show it’s true colors and cost the democrats much needed house and senate seats. After-all – it is nothing more than a pipe dream, because each person has to buy his or her Healthcare. It’s not free as the uninformed voter ( 52% ) thought it was. Actually you get to wait one more year before you’ll be forced to buy insurance or pay a fine to honest folks at the IRS.

    Don’t be standing near the railroad tracks when the Healthcare Express runs into town. Train wreaks are not a pretty thing. If you standing to close, a derailed rail car will run you over. You won’t need Healthcare if you get hit. Obama thinks that might be a good thing.

  • dntmkmecomoverther

    This is SOOOOOOO politically motivated! The message is clear; “We have today postponed the death of the Free Market Economy of the US until just after the 2014 elections when all the sheeple will realize the plundering they have been subjected to.”

    I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m fighting mad.

    • Joeblk

      Please do,,fight mad! We need you and everyone with enough courage to say enough is enoough.

  • downs1

    “Because he knows it will be a disaster!” How great! He knows it is an abysmal failure, but he is so arrogant and intellectually dishonest that he simply can’t bring himself to say, “It was a bad idea, and I’m calling an end to it!” Oh ,no! This guy is a total disaster, but people still support his craziness and his lies! To say anything against Obama is to be “racist!” His propaganda machine will tell you so! Just ask Martin Bashir! The fact that Obama is a lying, deceiving, anti-American fraud doesn’t seem to matter! Nancy Pelosi, the ugly foolish Democrat former Speaker of the House, the one who said, “We have to pass the Bill in order to find out what’s in it!” still apparently supports the fiasco! To say it isn’t good would be tantamount to admitting she made a huge mistake! She is a piece of work! Even some of the hard over liberal Democrats now see the damage this legislation could do, not only to their political careers, but to the country. After all, what good does it do to be in leadership if you don’t have a viable country to milk, er . . . govern! Know what I mean, Vern?

  • don

    Barrack Obama does know to be a fact that Obamacare is unworkable and will cost every American a fortune but not the Illegal Immigrants. Even with his knowledge that Obamacare is a Train wreck about to happen Obama will continue his push for this disaster and he will not lose a minutes sleep that he has pushed every American over the cliff and laugh about it the entire time. Barrack Obama does not care about what is good for this country all he cares about is making every American as miserable as he can. At the same time he is letting the Terrorist come across our borders because he does not want to stop his Fellow Radical Muslims from doing what they want to the legal Citizen. The Radical Muslim has been seen now for over ten years what there goals are and that is to conquer the world and murder and rape our children. The entire time they make the claim that there God told them to murder everyone that does not become a member of there tribe of criminals to murder rape and rob anyone they do not like. This is there deeply religious cult of the Muslims and they say they can not drink or commit any crimes so what do they consider a crime and we know that Murder rape robbing someone and taking what they want from anyone so what do they consider a crime.

  • MadmaxUSA

    Stay tuned, folks. Obama has just handed his political adversaries a huge tactical advantage. He postponed the Employer mandate, not the Individual mandate. Since employees must have an “approved” Obamacare plan, all the employers need to do is preempt the law and discontinue healthcare coverage for their employees. This will force millions into the state or federal health exchanges thus overwhelming them. Moreover, many employees, the younger, healthier ones in particular, will opt to pay the $1000 fine for not having approved coverage. Then the whole Obamacare pyramid scheme falls like a house of cards. Advantage employers if they choose to make this strategic move.

  • author5555

    If this law is working so well as Obama claims has, then is he delaying it for a year? Only one reason. How many democrats who voed for it re up for reelection next year. Does anyone know?

  • BaMc

    maybe “O” should have read it , and found out what’s in it, before he signed it. Pelosi/Reid leaving him with a bunch of egg on his face……
