President Barack Obama has been pushing his Affordable Care Act hard and heavy. He wants to exert his power and dominion over the American people and force them to pay through the nose for health care. Obama also wants all business owners to know that he owns them and has the power to put them out of business if he so chooses.
So why did the White House announce last week that it was delaying the employer mandate from January 1, 2014 to January 1, 2015?
Supposedly, the federal government says that they do not have the manpower to handle all of the applications and forms that the employer mandate calls for. I find this hard to believe since the feds have been hiring over 100 new employees every day since Obama first took office in January of 2009. Knowing that these provisions were coming up and what they entailed, you think that they would have been more than prepared to enforce and handle the employer mandate which is key to forcing people to purchase healthcare and fill the federal coffers. After all, we need many more millions of dollars so the first family can vacation around the world even more.
So what is the real reason for the 1 year delay in implementing the employer mandate?
The 2014 elections! All of the scandals have rocked the Democratic Party and they are starting to run scared of losing more seats in the House and Senate. Republicans already control the House and losing more seats there will only make it harder to win the House back down the political road.
The Senate, on the other hand, is what’s really important. All it would take is a combination of Democrats losing and Republicans winning 6 Senate seats to give the GOP control of the Senate. Imagine what Obama would do if that happened. Obama wouldn’t be able to get any of his socialist agenda passed.
The 2014 election could be one of the most pivotal mid-elections in American history. The Democrats have been put on the defensive due to the IRS, NSA and Benghazi scandals. As more provisions of Obamacare are being implemented, more Americans, including a growing number of Democrats, are realizing just how much more expensive it’s going to be.
Business owners are already laying employees off and reducing full-time staff to part-time in order to remain solvent and keep their doors open. Imagine what would happen at the polls in 2014 had the employer mandate gone into effect on January 1, 2014 causing more businesses to close up and more Americans to lose their jobs or have their hours cut and lose their benefits. There would be a lot of unhappy people heading to the polls in November 2014 and that would not be a good thing for Democrats.
Consider this: IRS officials and most likely the White House knew about the IRS targeting scandal several months prior to the 2012 elections, but kept it quiet until several months after the elections were over. Had that scandal hit just months prior to last November’s elections, it most likely would have swayed a number of voters and we may have had more Republicans in office than we have now. I can see the White House doing the same thing with the employer mandate, and holding it off until after next year’s elections.
Therefore, I firmly believe that the real reason the employer mandate has been pushed back a year is solely for political reasons involving the 2014 mid-elections.
