<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.
ObamaKare was signed into law on March 23, 2010.

After three years of fumbling, what would make anybody think that another year will help/

Are you sure you have both oars in the water, Homer?
How could you have possibly missed all the demonizing and marginalizing by this president all these years?
Are you taking those 'dumb pills' too like nuc? Go flush them down the toilet right now. Nuc is a hopeless addict. But I still have hope for you, Homer. Not sure why anymore.
Really? When cons held up the budget, they hailed a victory when Obama had to cave in to their demands.

And then sequestration came along, and the cons got REAL quiet.

But everyone knows who the culprits are.

You obviously have no idea what Baton Rouge is like. Let's just say the "refugees" from New Orleans almost doubled the population of Baton Rouge with very little impact on the crime rate.
And, your fake stories filled with colorful coloquial language is unconvincing. After all, you tried to tell us you'd buy the gas to drive a thousand miles one way to save a hundred dollars of so buying a gun.
No, I couldn't tell you the price of drugs today. I'm sure pot cost a lot more than a hundred dollars a pound, and cola is more than 20 dollars a dime. I have no idea what rocks of crack go for. It hadn't been invented then. But, so-called "poor" people seem to have enough money to make crack suppliers millionaires.
I am priviledged. I grew up in a country where I could be born in north Baton Rouge to semi-literate parents, grow up on a subsistence farm, and because I spent 4 years in the Marines I had an opportunity to go to a university.
Yes, that is priviledged.
Anyone you know has the same priviledge.
You grew up on a farm, I'm from the projects!

You went to the marines or army. Me & all my friend were felons by our teenage years.

You've worked all your life, I've been in the streets since 10/11 years old. I started out younger than that stealing boxes of candy & selling it in school. Learned from my big bro. I ain't bragging asshole. I just told you my little bro just came home from an 8 flat & my big bro just turned in for a 10 with a 3 year stipulation. He just came home from a 5 with an 85% stipulation in 06, just got off parole in 2010. Out of all my friends, my best friend & I are the only ones to never do a prison bid yet I played the game as long as them. I can calculate well over 100 years of man time all my friend spent in prison combined from the state to the feds. I miss all my friend & family. Just say you sacrificed but not in the same sense. Don't try to discreditme cuz you can't give back all those years. My nephew, the son of my bro that just came home looks at me like a father because his dad was in prison since he was 10 months old. I'm not talking about where you were raised near. You had no involvement in it so you have no right to brag. You remind me of modern day rapper. Talking bout someone else life is your claim to fame. Using Snoop Dogg &Master P as props is getting you nowhere. Take pride in you service career & be thankful like I said. You're being real ignorant right now!

Are you nuts?

Not one country has attacked the USA MAINLAND since Japan........ and we knew they were coming! Just like 9eleven!

9eleven was bin laden?

You mean that billionaire family from Saudi Arabia?

One man with 300 kids? Like twinkle panties dreams about?

Hey baby WWII -- WE WANTED IN! let the Japanese bomb the heck out of Pearl Harbor.

Our radar couldn't see them? Our Intel on the attack was not shared? We had it for weeks?

Sounds like 9eleven!

NO DEFENSE PUT UP! NONE! lumbering jumbo jets over the capital and most populated cities in America. Our supersonic fighters could not catch a 757? After the two towers were already hit!

Ohhhhhhhhhh boy!

But it did lead to a USA spending of $6 TRILLION FOR IRAQ! AND AFFFFGANNY.

TELL US AGAIN: WMD? NO. IRAQUIES IN PLANES? NO.

SADDAM WAS A BILLIONAIRE!! if he wanted to strike the USA it could have happened?

$6 TRILLION FOR WARS!

but food stamps cost so much?

Vietnam. Lied to get us in after JFK executed?

Iraq. Lied to get us in after "sneak" 9eleven?

WWII. Lied to get us in after "sneak" attack?

I guess we need wars to keep capitalism growing every year: it's all about the growth.

Stealing Constitutional rights supported by Supreme Court rulings is what you nazi's are all about.

You lost on gay rights.

You lost on Civil Rights.

You lost on women's rights,.

And you lost on abortion, but you freedom thieves don't care.

You hate the Constitution, as proven by the attacks on recent Supreme Court decisions, like the one that declared DOMA UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

you don't care about the Constitution.

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!

The ACA was designed to be a baby steps program with plenty of room for tweaks. You've known that right along___this move should come as a surprise to no one as the complications are enormous.

Consider the obstacles that Darden is running into in California due to Assembly bill 880.

Most have stated this and the few that have worked with the president,Hagel, Snowe, Collins, Christie etc., have been vilified.

They have no desire whatsoever to reach any kind of compromise with this president. Read 99% of the posts here by rightwingers, they suggest never working with this president and obstructing everything he tries to do.

And then have the gall and the audacity to blame the president, you can't make this stuff up!
