Ever here the saying, "don't throw the baby out with the dish water?" Why delay the entire program just because some provisions are unworkable in 2014? That is not the way to do business.<quoted text>
My mistake, but the corruption of the process remains.
When employees receive premium subsidies to which they are not entitled because the postponement of the employer mandate delays the verification mechanism, how will the government ever recover the money?
Galt has no problem with proceeding with the entire program (dooming it to failure) or delaying the entire program (including the tax increases), but not picking and choosing which elements to enact.
Good business practice is to implement the provisions that are workable and work through those that have problems. IMO, republicans are just looking for a way to get their hands on the money earmarked for the Affordable Healthcare Act to fund their own pet projects.
Sen. Moran (R-Kansas), Ranking Member for the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor and Health and Human Services, says that he wants to rescind the $15 million from the aca's Individual Payment Advisory Board and transfer it to Childrens Hospital Graduate Medical/Education program and he wants $1.35 billion transferred to the National Institutes of Health. No surprise those would benefit Childrens Mercy Hospital in his district. Smoke and mirrors. Politicians, in general, have no moral compass.
