It needs to be trashed and those who supported it listed so that they can be hunted down and publicly humiliated whenever we're struck with nostalgia for Romanian style justice.

Obamacare is the law. The part of it that got delayed is just one small aspect of it.

It doesn't matter how pissy you get, it's the law and it's here to stay.

It's a small part because the vast majority of large businesses already provide health care benefits.

98% of businesses with 50+ employees already provide health insurance according to Kaiser research. I don't buy the false conservative narrative that giving 2% of large businesses a little more time is an admission that the entire ACA is a failure.

No would-be fine from less than 2% of businesses would change anything.

If you want to talk about revenue neutrality then look at all the Republican governors refusing the Medicaid expansion. The revenue to fund the expansion in all 50 states is going to come in just the same, the only difference is that these GOP governors are making Obamacare flush with cash.

In the absence of Obamacare large employers would pay less if they eliminated health benefits. The only difference is that now there's a penalty if they do it.

It large employers weren't dumping employee health plans before, why would they do it now that there's a penalty?

I knew you couldn't answer this. I asked you a question that your conservative media overlords never wanted you to think about. And being wholly unable to think on your own, you flopped.

How come Romneycare led to an increase in the percentage of small businesses that offered health care?
