Introducing the Eventual Care Act

As Nate mentioned yesterday afternoon, the Obamastration has once again kicked the ACA can down the road:

"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"

Thus illegally postponing - again - the Employer Mandate.

Whoa there, Henry! Did you just call this illegal?

Why yes, yes I did.

And here's why:

"The final words in the section of [the ObamaTax] mandating that employers with more than 50 full-time employees provide their employees with “minimum essential coverage” imposes a specific statutory deadline for doing so. It says: “EFFECTIVE DATE.—The amendments made by this section shall apply to months beginning after December 31, 2013.

Notice it does not say "shall apply to months beginning after December 31, 2013, or whenever the President feels like it."

And yet, here we are (again).

So here's my question: if the ObamaTax is such a great idea, and if it is so vitally urgent that we insure as many Americans as possible as quickly as possible, then why in the Wide, Wide World of Sports is the President constantly putting it off?
