Gibbs: Employer mandate won't happen

It's a 'small part of the law'??


"Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs predicted Wednesday that the oft-delayed ObamaCare employer mandate will never go into effect.

ďI donít think the employer mandate will go into effect. Itís a small part of the law. I think it will be one of the first things to go,Ē Gibbs told a crowd in Colorado, according to BenefitsPro.com.

The website described the audience as being surprised by Gibbsís comments
In February, the Obama Administration announced the second delay to the mandate, which requires certain businesses to either offer their full-time employees insurance or pay penalties.

Under the most recently announced delay, employers with between 50 and 99 employees have until January 2016 to offer health insurance or pay a fine. Companies with more than 100 employees must offer insurance or pay a fine of $2,000 per worker by January 2015. Those with fewer than 50 employees are not subject to the penalty."

3. Yeah, that will go over well

 

Mandate the people but not the companies.

Wouldn't surprise me in the least though. Par for the course,

5. ^ This. ^

I've heard many employers are offering substandard plans. Better to just get everyone on the exchanges, let employers use the cost savings to pay their workers more.

A win-win for everyone.

7. No, the ACA did away with those plans

 

Or will, if they ever get around to implementing it.

The White House has said a lot of things about the implementation of ACA.
