It’s. The. Law? Can Obama administration legally delay Obamacare mandate?
Tweeps make good point. Didn't Congress specify Obamacare will go into effect Jan 1, 2014? Can exec branch ignore that for parts of law?

A petulant White House staffer got in on an #ObamacareInThreeWords hashtag game in May, posting a picture of the president’s signature on the Affordable Care Act along with the terse message, “It’s. The. Law.”

This evening, though, as word circulates that the employer mandate will be pushed back until the 2014 elections are out of the way, many are asking about that January 1, 2014 implementation deadline written into the bill. Isn’t that the law too?

Congress spoke: "“The amendments made by this section shall apply to months beginning after December 31, 2013.” Obama will simply ignore.

@ByronYork Issue is, who is going to sue?

Someone had better step up and sue to get this thing implemented as written. It’s. The. Law.

Of course, there are other options besides breaking the law.
Rather than simply delaying the pain, we should go ahead and scrap this entire law before any more damage is done.
