<quoted text>Doesn't appear that way -
“The Administration is announcing that it will provide an additional year before the ACA mandatory employer and insurer reporting requirements begin,” said Mark Mazur, assistant secretary for tax policy at the Treasury Department, in a statement Tuesday.“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. Within the next week, we will publish formal guidance describing this transition. Just like the Administration’s effort to turn the initial 21-page application for health insurance into a three-page application, we are working hard to adapt and to be flexible about reporting requirements as we implement the law.”
Makes sense to slowly implement these things.
Slowly? Haha...come on Homer, we've know it's been coming since the Supreme Court decision. The problem is that the law is such a piece of sht, no one knows how to implement it. I've been part of the meetings between companies and insurance agents. They don't even know how to determine an employee count under the law. It's a mess!

I have people in my family who lived the life you just described.
They do not have the abililty to write in the English language as proficiently as you display here.
You are a fucking liar.
I don't brag. I just state facts. If I were a fraud and mooched all of my life and ended up vacationing in the White House for 8 years, I'd brag about that. Everything else is just what I had to do. Doing what you have to do is no reason to brag. It's just doing what you have to do.
Okay, if that's what you call proficiently, then fine. I was in 9th grade for 3 months before I was expelled from school. I went back 15 years later & got my GED. If they can't read or write, that's on them. I have sons &, they need help with school work. Why would I sit here lying about my life. I could tell you everything about me & you still wouldn't know me. My whole point is, understanding & seeing the life is different from living it! I lived it, I know it like the back of my hand. As for those dude that can't read or write elementary school English, tell them there's adult education centers across America & it is never too late!

Get it together.
The court has ruled abortion is legal but did not rule that it cannot be restricted.
Late term abortion restrictions are legal!
Maybe we should call it "regulating" abortion. The loony left wingers love regulations.

I do know in his first attempt at publishing Journeys in Black and White which was ultimately shelved in place of Dreams of My Father, his biographical information stated he was born in Kenya.
Posted it the other day. Apparently, even if the publisher writes the biographies, it's usually approved by the author.
Why would even a publisher print an author's birthplace so erroneously?
Interesting, hadn't heard of one that preceeded "Dreams..."!

Thx for posting it again (I know, how bad not to scroll back and look at every blahblahdatabyte that floats around on Torpicks at times!:-)..)

Yep, and now we'll be paying more for our insurance premiums now that any old rest stop queen can marry one of his anonymous "loves" and get spousal coverage.

Funny how this lunatic calls anonymous sex "love" and "sharing", but resented the offer of free condoms and the concern for his well-being by a stranger. He's exactly the sort who will be costing those he resents, those he can't bend over *literally*.

Technically since Obama's mother was a U.S. citizen does it even matter where he was born?
Technically-when it comes to the reqs for POTUS of the USA, yes, it would.
Mostly because the reqs for POTUS did not actually involve the residential status of his mother, as she was not the one running for the office of.
No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.

Americans have mixed feelings about the Supreme Court's latest rulings, with a majority disapproving of its opinion on the Voting Rights Act, but in favor of two pro-gay marriage opinions, according to an ABC/Washington Post poll released Wednesday.

Just a third said they agree with the court's decision to strike down part of the Voting Rights Act, while 51 percent disagreed.

Knowledge about, and disapproval of, the VRA decision was especially high among African Americans, 71 percent of whom expressed disagreement with the ruling. Just 3 percent were undecided, while 16 percent of all adults had no opinion.

Other racial groups, however, also disapproved: Hispanic Americans disagreed by 50 percent while 40 percent agreed, and whites disagreed by 48 to 33 percent.

Morsi never had a chance to implement his oppressive agenda. He should've agreed to a 1-year implementation delay to fool everyone.
