They can't implement. Soooo many problems. Max Baucas called it a train wreck. The law bungles a tobacco use fee (nothing like getting into people's individual lives). Income and employment will be on the honor system? YGBSM! Nah. No need to concern the gov't with fraud worries.

Now, the administration will delay implementation of the law for business. Hey! What about self-employed and individual purchasers?

“Is it fair for the president of the United States to give American businesses an exemption from his health care law’s mandates without giving the same exemption to the rest of America? Hell no, it’s not fair,” Speaker John A. Boehner told a closed-door gathering of House Republicans on Tuesday, according to those present.

Eh. That's just Boehner.

So, let's bring in a "proud" Dem author:

Some Democrats were also dismayed by the White House’s actions. Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa, the chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee and an author of the health law, questioned whether Mr. Obama had the authority to unilaterally delay the employer mandate.

“This was the law. How can they change the law?” he asked.


Brilliant question. Why'd you pass it in the first place?
