Gray Lady Joke of the Day

You really can't make this up:

"In a long-awaited interpretation of the [ObamaTax], the Obama administration said Monday that employers must offer health insurance to employees and their children, but will not be subject to any penalties if family coverage is unaffordable to workers."

Wait, what?

So first they make it impossible to write child-only health plans, and now they've decided that "dependents" doesn't include spouses?

But the best part?

Remember: the "official" name of the ObamaTax is the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" [emphasis/irony added]. But they've now officially backtracked on that "affordability" requirement:

"[T]he meaning of “affordable” depends entirely on the cost of individual coverage for the employee"

Reminds me of something....
