View Diary: Another Obamacare 'delay' that really isn't a 'delay' (45 comments)

  •  It's not a delay (3+ / 0-)

    Delaying the employer mandate is a delay. A part of the law, in that case, is not being implemented.

    This is about making sure everyone who wants to sign up can.

    And I think that's the main reason the GOP is upset. More people signing up makes repeal that much harder.

    •  Call it what you will, but the deadline has been (0+ / 0-)

      extended again.  in my view, that's exactly what a delay is.

      If I were the GOP, I'd make hay over it, too, but...

      There be dragons there.

      How about this for a talking point:

      "Yeah, yeah, I don't like the way things have gone, either, but...we could push things off for a month of Sundays and you would still get something before the Republicans get around to it."

      "With all of their brilliant insights, I wonder why Republicans didn't roll up their sleeves and help us make a better law instead of sitting on the sideline and pouting."

      etc.

      •  I think there's a difference though (0+ / 0-)

        between pushing back a deadline to enroll and not implementing part of the law.

        Bush did the same thing with Medicare Part D deadline and I dont think Dems or Republicans really cared.

        •  Same thing. Things weren't going well so (0+ / 0-)

          the hammer was delayed.

          So what?
          It happens.
