Politics and The Employer Mandate

This column by Wesley Pruden discusses the decision to conveniently delay the Obamacare employer mandate until after the 2014 elections:  "Pundits and professors are rifling through the thesaurus, looking for the right word to describe what the Wall Street Journal calls 'a fiasco for the ages.' The Journal editorialists reminded everyone that they 'fought the Affordable Care Act from start to passage, and we’d like to apologize to our readers. It turns out we weren’t nearly critical enough.' The editors of the New York Times, Mr. Obama’s most reliable sycophants, are deep in mourning, but working furiously to apply more rouge to the corpse before it turns the parlor too fragrant for a wake. It’s summer and they’re running out of ice."
