There’s a catch to the Obama administration’s latest unilateral end-run around Obamacare’s “settled law,” Heritage’s Alyene Senger explains.
The new delay to the employer mandate now phases in starting in 2015 for companies with more than 100 employees. It’s delayed even further until 2016 for companies with between 50 and 100 employees—if they meet two conditions:
- They can’t lay off employees or cut worker hours because of Obamacare; and
- They can’t drop existing coverage.
Senger points out that individuals are still subject to the mandate. Only businesses have been given a delay.
Do you think the entire law should be delayed as a first step towards repeal?
