I know you’ll all be shocked to discover that the Obama Administration has changed the rules once again when it comes implementing the monstrosity known as the Affordable Care Act -- AKA ObamaCare.
On Monday, officials announced another delay for the employer mandate -- the rule that says businesses of a certain size must provide health care coverage for their full time workers. They’d already pushed it back to 2015, but now they’ve decided that companies with 50-99 employees may wait until 2016 to implement the new law.
In other news, President Obama met with French President Francois Hollande on Monday, and was overheard telling the foreign head of state, “That’s the good thing as a President, I can do whatever I want.”
For reals, though, what is the deal with ObamaCare? The whole thing has been such a huge fail that it’s basically proving all the Republicans that said it was a terrible idea right. It’s like we don’t even have to try to convince people it’s crap anymore -- it’s digging its own grave.

This new delay just proves once again that President Does-What-He-Wants cares more about big business than he does the middle class. The companies are off the hook for providing health care for their employees, but the people themselves aren’t. They will still be fined if they don’t get themselves insured.
Thanks to skyrocketing costs, it’s going to be difficult for many of those peeps to get covered, which means more and more will be pushed onto the exchanges -- if they can even sign up. Assuming they can sign up, this is going to put more costs onto the taxpayers. More taxes, people, yay! Wait … what?
ObamaCare is a mess. They can’t even figure out how to get it going. Nobody knows how to navigate it, the rules keep shifting, and at the end of the day, it’s hurting the little people that are forced to comply with the president’s mandates as he gives free passes to corporations.
Then again, don’t blame Obama … after all, he didn’t build that. He only campaigned on it and rammed it down America’s throat. How many other ObamaCare fails must we endure before we can scrap it and try for some real reform?
Is ObamaCare working for you?
