Another Obamacare Employer Mandate Delay

I suppose this warrants another blog entry. Although, let's be honest . . . at this point it would be more surprising if the administration actually started enforcing the law as written. In any event, another day, another Obamacare delay.

As the linked LA Times article explains, the employer mandate will now be phased in until 2016:
Under the latest regulations, only employers with more than 100 full-time workers will have to pay fines next year and only if they do not cover at least 70% of those workers. 
In 2016, when the full mandate takes effect, employers with more than 50 full-time employees will have to provide insurance to at least 95% of their employees.
I don't think I need to tell you, but stay tuned! Who knows what changes will pop up next.
