The Obama administration announced Monday it would give medium-sized employers an extra year, until 2016, before they must offer health insurance to their full-time workers.
Firms with at least 100 employees will have to start offering this coverage in 2015.
By offering an unexpected grace period to businesses with between 50 and 99 employees, administration officials are hoping to defuse another potential controversy involving the 2010 health-care law, which has become central to Republicans’ campaign to make political gains in this year’s midterm election.
Even the nation’s largest employers got a significant concession: They can avoid a fine by offering coverage to 70 percent of their full-time employees in 2015 and 95 percent starting in 2016.WHAT WAS URGENT IN 2009 IS NO LONGER URGENT IN 2014?!
WHAT HE PASSED IN 2009 WITH LIES AND BRIBES IS TOO TOXIC TO PUT INTO EFFECT UNTIL AFTER THE NEXT TWO ELECTIONS!
THIS IS CYNICAL LAWLESSNESS AND TYRANNICAL MENDACIOUSNESS AT THEIR WORST.
THIS POS SHOULD BE IMPEACHED.
