This surprises the wave of the law was designed to work but since.
Everybody's been saying how it's not gonna happen.
And it's important for us.
Did recognize and acknowledge this is working with the way it's supposed to this was a stunner.
I don't know that there were many reports of implementation being behind schedule concerns over the exchange has not been ready to go but not a whisper.
How about dropping enforcement of the employer mandate and win the news came out I'd say it was far from quiet it was a bombshell in advance of the fourth of July.
And we're back with our panel let's check with them to see -- surprised or not the highest about this latest -- sister -- Well you don't delay something that's working very well so clearly there are problems we've known about the problems they've been widely reported everywhere.
And while this was a surprise every was Doug -- taking them was a surprise that we found out about it this way.
It's not surprised that they are seeking to delay implementation.
At least of this one piece what's -- -- is to see the Republican response to a certain extent.
Republicans were some Republicans conservatives in congress were contemplating.
Attaching a suspension of the implementation of obamacare broadly.
To the debt ceiling increase and having that fight there in this in a sense.
Preempt that move although I suspect they're going to continue.
To try to do that to make this suspension of the implementation broader.
I can send it how do you respond to those two -- Charles he's the word cynical yesterday about the fact that this is gonna push the employer mandate passed -- at this point fourteen elections and midterm elections and that there may be.
Some political calculations I don't Iannetta who doesn't think this is political political you know whether you're Democrat or Republican because.
But the thing is it any year it's still going to be the same mandate with the same requirements as some some -- gonna magically happen between now and then you could make the argument perhaps against people more time to get ready for.
But that that's that not related issues that's that's not why it's been delayed it's been delayed because they're afraid they're gonna start -- decreasing people's hours in order to to meet this.
To meet the standard which of course would be very bad and -- -- people start coming out saying I'm losing work because of obamacare that would reflect very badly on obamacare.
Yes and -- amendment analysis today there was talking about the specifically about the issue of unemployment not only people have an Indiana came -- trailed talk about some of the less popular portions of the law.
But the fact that employers many of them have said it doesn't -- there hiring decisions and you don't -- spike in unemployment at a time when your folks -- -- on the trail.
I think of all the small businesses have about forty employees -- -- hit 49 and then stop for the next fifty years because if you go to fifty.
You've become so subject to all the fines and all the requirements so it obviously in the in his retiring you know it obviously will make.
A lot of employers.
Create a part time employment to you know reduce the hours to find out.
Under Obama -- -- Thirty hours or weeks and they are a lot of people who wanna work the forty hours that we could lose ten hours a week because of this idiotic regulation.
And I love the way that the president says -- right exactly as designed.
If Sony is working exactly as designed.
You don't announce he's changing it in a blog post by the assistant assistant.
Secretary of the treasury on the -- of the -- -- the fourth of -- When congress is -- -- -- everybody's hand it to the beach.
If you produce something -- your signature achievement.
And this is the major change I suspect it's not exactly how you'd want to release it.
So I have a suspicion here that it's not working the way supposed.
Suspicions and cynicism they continue today.
-- -- -- -- -- I went out to get out my dictionary forgot one thing and made my thesaurus to.
-- seeing what and the -- they are rolling this out there saying it's that hires employers have come to them saying we have problems and we have confusion so we respect what you're saying we're doing this to try to be helpful.
Shouldn't employers didn't just start since last week and have them push -- to say this what employers are saying this before.
The bill passed before -- and why they were warning about precisely these kinds of consequences.
And we're already seeing.
-- the implications on hiring and there was a guy Gallup poll that was taken at the behest of an employment law firm that show that 41%.
Businesses with small business with business less than twenty million dollars annually 41%.
Had suspended hiring frozen hiring and 19%.
From those same businesses had.
Eliminated workers eliminated positions because of this and specifically because of the -- so we're already seeing -- impact.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Yeah look I think either because they're -- UMass fans -- this -- should be repealed I think most people have realized that this is not meaning just the employer just this part of it.
That because it's actually is it doesn't work very well that could lead to people actually losing hours error and people not being hired the problem is.
You can never go back to congress on obamacare because they want to repeal the whole thing they're not gonna tinker with -- and fix the fix a problem and so the only answer is to delay it.
By the way we just heard from the White -- statement about d.s situation in Egypt saying that the US doesn't support particular individuals or political parties.
Much more to that statement we'll have -- -- online shows he'll have to stick around for that but up next.
