Default Delay: Obama set to unsheath and hand Ted Cruz the ACA Mandate Sword

The Obama administration will delay enforcement of the Affordable Care Act’s health insurance mandate, extending how long Americans may go uninsured before facing a penalty under the law, MarketWatch has learned.

Oh, believe me, Ted Cruz is doing plenty of squat. This is exactly the opening that he's looking for to push the "Repeal and Replace" initiative that they've got sitting in the wings waiting for this event.

It's about damn time they put out a plan. Not that it's necessarily got the full support of republicans in congress.

They're going to find out however that it's a lot easier to take shots at somebody else's ideas than come up with your own and defend them. Dems and their supporters are going to rip on this plan the same way Cruz ripped on Obamacare. Should be fun to watch.

BTW, where the hell was this plan ten years ago?

Edit: You know, I just noticed that article was from over a month ago. What's its current status? I haven't heard squat from republicans on this plan.

I happen to agree with a finite delay... Until the retards responsible for the web rollout get their **** together..

Obama could have ended the shut down way earlier by saying how about debt limit raise for a 6 mos delay to Obamacare mandate. Shut down on Obama.

You're FOS as usual. You know as well as I do the shutdown is on rethugs, just cause obama didn't give in to their extortion demands doesn't put the shutdown on obama.

Ironically enough it's rumored the White House is considering delaying the mandate a year. That just so happens to be the amount of time Cruz suggested.

Out of touch? Don't think so. I call that spot on as he saw the train wreck coming. I call that vision and so are some Democrats who now see it.

On the surface, demanding an end to Obamacare in return for reopening the federal government was an insane negotiating strategy. Attempting to analyze these demands in strategic terms misses the point. It’s not a plan to achieve a defined legislative end. It’s a demonstration of dissent from a political faction that has no chance of winning through regular political channels. The problem they are attempting to solve in each case is not “how do we achieve this policy objective?” but “how can we express our outrage?”

Their answer is "Well Shutdown was bad politics, so they're stupid"

Never mind that averting this epic train wreck was just the right thing to do. That's not their concern.

this administration is embarrassing if true. A year delay on the mandate is exactly what the Tea Party asked for and the Obama Admin and Senate said no after the Admin gave Corps and Unions waivers. Now they're considering suspending the mandate. What a bunch of knuckleheads.

So now you guys are clinging to a unsubstantiated rumor from an unidentified source to bash Obama. Could you be any more desperate?

BTW, is this ACA going to now include illegals or will they actually vote on something like that if it was to be recommended as added to ACA. This would piss me off (and I am sure many Democrats).

This thing is failing big time. Now that everyone is finding out how much it is costing their families and getting cut to part time work, how much support will this get? This is why Obama hurried out the unworkable program. Peacepipe, it doesn't take too much to see why.
