A key provision of Obama's health law, aka Obamacare, will be pushed back a year, the administration said Wednesday. The delay buys more time for businesses with at least 51 workers to show they are providing health insurance. What happens in the meantime

read and noted on 7-05-13 this is nothing more than a repeated stall tactic by our elected officials once again and the ones that are going to suffer the most are the ones that do not have any means of health insurance they keep on changing the rules because for one these folks in office do not need to worry about health care insurance them and their family members are 100% covered lets just hope that nobody without health care insurance gets sick or hurt otherwise plan on paying out of your own pocket to visit a doctor for treatment this country of ours is going backwards instead of forward no wonder we can not get anything done the right way our elected officials need to give up all their free perks and live like the rest of us do.

Well, it seems like taking 30-something votes to repeal the ACA are just not enough for the GOP. Wonder how many more votes they plan to take now that this has been extended another year. And, it gives companies enough time to lower their number of employees, too. Why can't we just have Medicare For All?

Obviously these Companies had no intentions for planning ahead for this!!! But YES HIT them HARD when they DON'T PROVIDE THIS FOR THEIR EMPLOYEES! Now it going to make it tough to decide what is is to be full time!!!
Thank You

Thanks to Obamacare, many employees are cutting their worker's hours, including mine.

This delay does not bode well for the plan. It's an indication of just how expensive this plan is going to be.

what a supreme joke it all is. My friend applied for Obamacare, and unless she made less than 14,000 a year she was ineligible and yet she can't afford the insurance premium of 600 to 800 hundred a month. She only lives on about 2,000 a month. She has fourth stage breast cancer. JUST FREAKING GREAT ! All the lower middle class/middle class people are falling through the cracks again. That's right Bill and Katie ~ universal health care for all ! And screw your employers Lisa ~ bugging unethical !

Stupidity reigns again. Allan, wrong as always, this saved 10s of billions. Could have been hundreds of billions if Republicans hadn't tacked on 96 amendments to try to destroy it.

And I'm thinking, Constance that either your friend doesn't know what she's talking about, or her concerns are with parts of it that don't go into effect for years due to those Republican amendments. And 6-800 a month is an insurance company premium, not an ACA charge.

Here's what needs to happen, anyone who has ever been considered a full time employee should be locked in as one no matter how much the company cuts their hours, but if the employee ASKS, without being pressured to do so, to have their hours cut, then and only then they could be considered to be not full time.

I sure hope that that are or will be covered have better coverage than those of us with Medicaid are getting.

The insurance company I have routinely delays and denies necessary procedures, and has now refused me any specialists. ..but after 8 months of this the will ok my being treated at the U of W TEACHING Hospital, which Iis ill equipped to handle my case, and treats you as if you were already a cadaver - something they have no shortage of for study...go figure.
Yes, I'm pissed off...I had great care through the state before these changes went into effect last year!
