If Obamacare is so awesome, why did King Obama just delay employer mandate for small business until 2016?

Elections…elections….elections. That’s all this is about. King Obama is trying to keep Democrats from drowning under the disastrous wake of Obamacare.

CNBC – The federal government Monday announced yet another delay in Obamacare’s rules. It will now exempt companies employing between 50 and 100 full-time workers from complying with the mandate to offer employees affordable health insurance by another year, until 2016.

    Companies that have 100 or more full-time workers, defined as employees who work more than 30 hours per week, will have to begin complying with the mandate to offer such coverage in 2015 or face financial penalties of up to $3,000 per worker.

    Officials Thursday said that the delay in the Obamacare mandate will affect 50 percent of the businesses that were supposed to be complying by 2015. Those officials could not answer how many workers would be affected by the delay.

UPDATE: Very clever:

If President Obama likes his health care law, why won't he keep it? … #FullRepeal

According to Schummer, Pelosi, etc. Obamacare gives people the freedom to follow their dreams. Be poets, painters, and even abstract New Age puppeteers creek from being slaves to a job because they need the insurance.

Was this one of those "if you liked the freedom that I promised, YOU CAN'T HAVE IT "
