    Cowardly Dems are catching heat over the lost jobs and slashed hours as small businesses rush to keep from going under due to increased costs.

    So what's their solution?

    Fix Obamacare?

    Repeal Obamacare?

    No, they want to delay implementation of the impact on employers until AFTER the 2014 elections.

    They are too cowardly to face up to the consequences of their actions.

    This is prima facia evidence of just how unpopular Obamacare really is. But they're going to shove it down our throats (or up our backsides) anyway.

    If the Republicans can manage to show some initiative and backbone, they'll pull out all the stops to make this a major campaign issue and hold the Dems feet to the fire, including pointing out how they're running and hiding from their deeds.

    This is a perfect opportunity for true conservatives to demand "equal protection." This could be a Tea Party/Grass Roots/genuine Republican rally call. If ever a moment has come to draw a clear distinction between Conservatism and communism, it is NOW. The drums of war should be heard tommorrow morning.

    548 nice 'ignorance is bliss' attitude LOL. Did you bother to google other news sources or are you just a political ostrich when being naive suits you? So much for your credibility.

    So, now the Dems realise the Affordable Care Act is a train wreck, and will hurt them in the 2014 mid term elections, and they want to postpone the employment mandate till after the election?

    This outright politically motivated BS should outrage everybody in this country. However only 30% of them are paying attention.

    According to NPR this morning, TEN percent of small businesses having 50 or more employees do not furnish any type of health care. In the meantime, the residents of Georgia and presuming all other states that have not signed up for the Affordable Health Care Act are experiencing a rise in their private Medical Insurance premiums. My Medicare Supplemental through Aetna went up $20/mo and the letter I received cited the reason that I gave. What conclusion can you Right Wingers draw from that consequence?

    I would conclude that the insurance companies are going to have to insure more people regardless of their health for less money so they are going to recoup it where ever they can.

    GOD help this once great country if they do. Things will snowball downhill at a much accelerated pace once they have control of both houses. Start packing you bugout bags. and load up on ammo. You are gonna need it when the meltdown happens.

    What is so cynical about this (probably illegal) move is that nothing changes for the individual. The government knows it can control business so fedgov can cut them some slack without doing any damage to their power position. It is individuals government fears because there are so many of them and they are much more difficult to control. No slack cut the individuals because fedgov fears and hates them.
