"But from the perspective of a very small employer, it may become easier to compete for talent against larger enterprises (which would be able to offer much better insurance options to employees at better prices anyway). These subsidies often come in the form of tax credits, which any profit-making business can utilize immediately. If the business does not operate at a profit, the credit can be carried forward to future years—not helpful for today’s cash flow, but valuable in the future."
Note the the sentence: "These subsidies often come in the form of tax credits"
Now, don't you really feel stupid. Your heroes at Fox calling you a f*cking moron. Yep, that's gotta hurt.
I gave you SIX definitions that had tax no where in the text yet you still cling to your one. Then throw in things from fox. I don't watch fox, don't give a sht if it sinks or swims. My SIX outweigh your ONE...EVERYDAY!

"The federal government's strategy for making health coverage affordable next year for middle-income Americans largely depends on a new federal tax credit.
Health care experts prefer to describe it as a subsidy or discount on health insurance premiums."

Your problem that you are too stupid to think that providing financial,support means giving money and not including instruments such as tax breaks.
Find me 7 definition sources that call tax breaks subsidies, then we'll talk.. Until then, you lose.

Once again...
What is on the table is delaying the individual mandate for a year.
The obstructionist Republicans only want to delay the individual mandate so they can keep cutting away at funding for the ACA. NO WAY! Enough is enough.

"Republicans in 26 states have already refused to implement exchanges that would allow millions of uninsured residents to obtain private coverage and many aren’t lifting a finger to expand Medicaid eligibility for the lowest income Americans. The intransigence is forcing the federal government to do more just as Congress is appropriating less."

"Republicans have denied additional funding requests for ACA implementation in FY 2013 and FY 2012, leaving the agency running at pre-ACA levels. HHS lost billions from sequestration, including $13 million in cuts from the Consumer Operated and Oriented Plan Program (CO-OPS),$51 million from the Prevention and Public Health Fund, and $44 million cut from the Affordable Insurance Exchange Grants program. Congress voted to repeal the law at least 33 times, successfully taken money out of prevention, rolled back reporting requirements, and consistently proposed offsetting additional spending by pealing back various sections of the law. Last week, the debate over the budget in the Senate suggested that the law’s excise tax on medical devises may be on the chopping block."

Delaying it a year just puts off the inevitable...glitches in the system. Might as work them out now rather than later. Don't worry about it. It will all work out.
People like you who put their complete trust in this bureaucratic monstrosity deserve every "glitch" and rate increase you get.

What's your motto? "Starve your kids, feed the Obamacare till." Fool.

Here's a question nobody on Earth has been able to answer. Why don't you take a shot at it.
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
You have to identify an actual source of money to answer this question. "Money will grow on trees" is not an acceptable answer.
Funding will come from:

1 - The reduction in medical cost the Federal government now picks up for the uninsured.

2 - The increase on the tax rate of earnings from capital gains, rental properties, taxable annuities and other investment income for those filers whose TAXABLE INCOME is more than $200,000, or married joint filers whose TAXABLE INCOME exceeds $250,000.

3 - The 0.9% increase in the Medicare payroll taxes for that same group.

4 - Tax on people who don't sign up for health insurance.

5 - An increase in the threshold for deductions for medical expenses from 7.5% to 10% of adjusted gross income for those under 65*.

*Beginning Jan. 1, 2017, ALL taxpayers may deduct only the amount of the total unreimbursed allowable medical care expenses for the year that exceeds 10% of their adjusted gross income.

6 - Excise tax on high cost employer-sponsored health coverage.

7 - Inclusion of cost of employer-sponsored health coverage on W-2.

8 - Distributions for medicine qualified only if for prescribed drug or insulin. Taxpayers will no longer pick up the tab for OTC medications.

9 - Increase in additional tax on distributions from HSAs and Archer MSAs not used for qualified medical expenses.

10.- Limitation on health flexible spending arrangements under cafeteria plans.

11.- Imposition of annual fee on branded prescription pharmaceutical manufacturers and importers.

12. Imposition of annual fee on medical device manufacturers and importers.

13. Imposition of annual fee on health insurance providers.

14. Elimination of deduction for expenses allocable to Medicare Part D subsidy.

15. Modification of itemized deduction for medical expenses.

16. Additional hospital insurance tax on high-income taxpayers.

17. Excise tax on elective cosmetic medical procedures.

Was that a non-event, also? Or, is it only a non-event when the so-called "mainstream" news ignores a major story like that?

What the Shutdown Has Achieved

Gallup finds that the GOP’s unfavorability rating has spiked in the last month:.....

An unfavorability rating of 62% passes the worst number for Republicans in the last twenty years, and that came at the nadir of the Bush era in the midst of the financial crisis. The party’s favorability rating (28%) is also an all-time low since Gallup began asking the question in 1992. It is even lower than the party’s favorability after Clinton’s impeachment. Post-Bush Republicans have managed to achieve what I thought couldn’t be done–they have made their party even more unattractive to the country than it was at the lowest ebb of Bush’s last years in office. The ratings for the Democrats aren’t great (43% fav/49% unfav), but the gap between the parties has widened significantly in just the last month.
