Obamacare Delayed Until 2015 To Protect Democrats For Midterm Elections
A Treasury Department official who declined to be named confirmed to MailOnline on Tuesday that the Obama administration will not begin enforcing employer mandates in the Obamacare law until 2015 – one year later than originally planned – and pinned that change of direction on a combination of politics and economic realities in the marketplace.
Mark Mazur, the Assistant Treasury Secretary for Tax Policy, announced on the agency’s blog that the administration ‘will provide an additional year before the … mandatory employer and insurer reporting requirements begin.’
The blog post explained that the delay was intended to leave time to simplify reporting requirements and give companies time to adapt. Read more from this story here.
This event was almost immediately confirmed by the Washington Post.
In other words, Obamacare would be so devastating for businesses that even the administration realizes it and knows it would be equally as devastating to Democrats in the midterm election.
