(Reuters)- The Obama administration's move to delay a key element of healthcare reform has another, unintended, consequence: A crucial part of that reform will depend on consumers observing the honor system, with millions of dollars at stake.

It just gets worse and worse.

I've been wondering how they're going to handle employees with more than one job (an increasing statistic in this world of cutting hours). If one employer offers coverage and the other doesn't, does the other have to pay the fine? If neither do, do they both have to pay a whole fine, or in proportion to hours worked?

All kinds of messes.

Apparently they don't know, either! What a fiasco this is turning out to be.

And then this:

Last month, Gallup conducted a survey to determine small business attitudes toward the Affordable Health Care Act, better known as Obamacare. The results were not encouraging for backers of the law.

The polling firm determined that as many as a quarter of small business employers were restricting job openings to part-time workers. Nearly half said Obamacare would be bad for their business, compared to only 9 percent who said it would be a good thing. More than half believed they would be forced to reduce the quality of the health care they provide.
