  •  But the employer mandate has been postponed (9+ / 0-)

    for companies with 50 or more employees.  So why are all these companies carrying on about ACA in 2014 - they've been given a pass. They're free to not provide insurance.

    If they're going to provide coverage to all of their employees, that's great, but they shouldn't be blaming it on ACA because they aren't required to do so.

        Because they get millage for doing so.  Obama, once again, looks like a sucker.  He 'listened to business leaders' and gave them a one year reprieve.  How do they repay him?  By making their employees suffer one year earlier.  Many hoping that it will affect the 2014 elections so that this will be overturned (which is stupid, because, you know, Obama will still be President).
