    @Turtles Run - Our Medicare Advantage plan, which we enjoyed until Obama outlawed Medicare Advantage, worked well for us and at a lower cost than we are now having to pay for an inferior Medicare Supplement plan. You say most costly and least effective, but you are absolutely wrong as we have experience an unreasonable increase in our costs and a great reduction in effectiveness and satisfaction. We know! Apparently, you don't.

    Nationally 95% of large employers offer insurance to their employees. For this reson the impact of this delay will be minimal. It does point out the absurdity of employers being involved in health care anyway. With a true universal care system businesses would be rid of this burden and be able to focus the time and money spent on this HR issue on their core business.

    @Linus - Medicare Advantage is the most costly and least effective portion of Medicare. It is a gift horse to the Health Insurance and medical community.

    Why bother passing laws at all, if the President, or his minions can just go ahead and pick and choose which parts they will bother to implement?

    Income taxes- maybe you won't have to pay if you voted the right way.

    Background checks for gun sales?- They've already done that- checks for you and me, but not for know drug cartel smugglers!

    NSA spying on Americans- not supposed to happen, but it does!

    Election fraud? Sorry, they only prosecute if they can find any Republicans cheating, but walk away from easily proven cases against their voters.

    This modification of the Obamacare mandates is clearly a cheap (but effective!) political scam to fool voters in the 2014 elections. And, frankly my dear, they don't give a darn if it is legal or not. Go ahead and sue them, but it won;t be settled until after the election, and you sucker taxpayers will pay for all the lawyers involved, regardless of the outcome.

    It doesn't surprise me that Ormsby, who represents AARP, is a defender and apologist for the ACA considering the fact that the AARP sold older Americans down the river by failing to resist robbing and defunding of Medicare to the tune of 800 billion dollars annually to fund the ACA. They also failed to resist the ACA provision that outlaws Medicare Advantage plans for fixed-income retirees. It has cost my household the health security we formerly enjoyed, it has cost us thousands of dollars annually, and it has destroyed our confidence in AARP, which was bought off with taxpayer funded incentives to sell us out.
