RUSH: This is not even constitutional what he’s doing. He does not have the constitutional authority, by virtue of the law itself. I’ll get to that in a minute. “The administration will let employers with 50 to 99 employees off the hook in 2015.” I mean, that right there: The Regime “will let”? In their magnificent munificence, they “will let employers … off the hook.” To be in compliance with this law is damaging and harmful, and so we’re going to let them off the hook?
“They’ll be required to report on how many workers are covered, but they will have until 2016 after the next two elections before they face a penalty for failing to cover employees. Employers with 100 or more workers will be required to provide health insurance to full-time staff, but the new rules will only require them to cover 70% of workers next year, and 95% the following year.” It’s an unmitigated disaster.
There’s no other way to describe it. It’s harmful, it’s punitive, it’s never going to work. If it were as Obama and the Regime and the Democrats advertised — if it were the panacea they promised, if it were the fix that they promised, if it was the solution they all promised — Obamacare would already have been fully implemented by now and the American people would demand access to it. The American people would be wanting it.
