According to Health Day News, the Obama administration has delayed a key piece of the new health-reform law set to take place in 2014. "In a surprise announcement, the Obama administration said Tuesday evening that it was delaying implementation of a key part of its landmark health-reform law -- the requirement that employers with more than 50 workers offer insurance coverage by Jan. 1, 2014 or face fines.

The new deadline for providing such coverage is now Jan. 1, 2015, administration officials announced on blog postings.

Administration officials said the delay was prompted by concerns from business leaders that the reporting system needed to carry out the coverage mandate was complex and made it difficult to meet the Jan. 1, 2014 deadline." read more

Of course he has decided to delay it. He sees what is happening to people all over this land as part time workers are cut to even less hours because full time is now considered 30 hours a week. Did they really not see that coming or did they ignore the possibility just to get the law passed??
