Obama Delays Obamacare Employer Mandate Until After Midterm Elections

A major component of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul is being delayed until 2015, CBN News reports. The administration announced Tuesday that it is postponing the "employer mandate," which would require companies with more than 50 workers to provide coverage to all full-time employees or face a series of tax penalties. Business leaders say the delay will give companies more time to update their health care coverage before facing arbitrary fines. Republicans say the delay just proves the law is unworkable and should be replaced with simpler reforms; the delay is expected to help Democrats in the 2014 elections by muting a GOP line of attack.
