If only you actually had all the answers - to anything Dumbo.

"The administration said it would postpone enforcement of the Affordable Care Act requirement that companies with 50 or more full-time workers provide health insurance that meets minimum requirements of coverage and affordability. Companies that didn’t comply were to pay a fine of $2,000 to $3,000 a worker starting next year; that fine will now be delayed until 2015.

Giving businesses and the Internal Revenue Service more time to prepare for the mandate’s extensive reporting requirements makes sense. Critics of this change are right to note that it’s a win for business, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a loss for employees or the public. Nobody gains from a reporting system that doesn’t work.

Moreover, the practical effect of this delay is limited. Ninety-eight percent of employers with more than 200 workers already offer health coverage; for those with 50 to 199 employees, it’s 94 percent. For companies looking to drop coverage, the penalty, which is a fraction of the cost of health insurance, was unlikely to deter them."

94% of businesses with over 50 employees already provide insurance coverage for their employees.

This mandate only affects 6% of all businesses and small business was already exempt from having to provide insurance for their employees.

The more people know about the ACA, the more they support it.
Of course, the less intelligent Americans, like you, are just too stupid to understand it and don't even want to try. Had Bush come up with this healthcare plan, you would have cheered. It's pretty BLACK AND WHITE when it comes to you idiots and our 1st Black President, President Obama.

Booey hooey for youey.

This is nothing more than a political stunt to put off that part of ACA for a year. This whole bill is fraught with problems. USSC could have cut it off at the knees but instead changed the penalty to a tax, thus changing the law. Thousands of waivers have already been given. Congress attempted to give themselves waivers until they saw the public outcry. If the bill is so good, then no waivers, no excuses, no delays. But to cherrypick it apart is nothing more than a deceitful political ploy.
