Smells like the delay of the employer mandate was to avoid verification of the individual mandate.Obammy Care--the next big runaway government trainwreck
On the heels of Tuesday's report that Obamacare's employer mandate would be delayed by a year, the Obama Administration delayed INCOME-VERIFICATION REQUIREMENTS for health exchange subsidies. This is another piece of the unraveling that has continued to take place even as the Obama administration has pressed forward with implementation.
From the Washington Post's report:
The verification systems are meant to determine who qualifies for new benefits under the Affordable Care Act. The law includes tax subsidies to purchase health insurance for Americans who earn less than 400 percent of the poverty line, about $45,000 for an individual.
After encountering “legislative and operational barriers,” the federal government will not require the District and the 16 states that are running their own marketplaces to verify a consumer’s statement that they do not receive health insurance from their employer...
The rule also scaled back states’ responsibilities to double-check the income levels that consumers report, which determine any tax subsidy they receive.
The law does not permit subsidies if the employer offers coverage and the employee declines the coverage. This move by ObamaKKKare allows massive subsidies not permitted by the law.
All in all, an invitation to massive fraud, just like elections that do not require any verification of voter identity.
The Egyptians have more democracy under military rule than we do under Obama.
