For Fatburger and others, Obamacare delay came too late

New York (CNNMoney) - Delaying the Obamacare employer mandate has simply put off rules business had already started adjusting to.

Under the Affordable Care Act, companies with 50-plus full-time employees must start offering them health insurance or face stiff penalties. The employer mandate had been set to kick in January 2014, but was pushed back a year.

    Not a wise move on the part of Obama–this nation is that stupid. Well, right now companies are already splitting to evade this restriction except the big giants like Macy's, k'mart, dillard's etc. these tiny winy companies split and create three or more sub-companies. Instead of watching these giving time is utterly NONSENSE. Yes, we need to tighten visa system too. Tighten on H1-B, J1 visas. These India guys are not going Bach nevertheless visas expire. BCBS is the biggest culprit to hire illegals. Watch out–Obama,

    For all you Obama haters who don't live in reality. Obama doesn't sit down a his desk each day to write ACA rules and guidelines. Hundreds of qualified employees take on this task. Obviously trying to stop the insurance industry from screwing us all has proven to be very tedious. If there was no delay and something went wrong, you idiots would be told by Fox "news" to throw a fit. This portion of the mandate has been delayed to "get it right" the first time. Use your pea brains for a second and realize you'd complain regardless. Turn of Fox "news" and learn something!

    Employer provided health insurance has always be a benefit not a requirement. Now thanks to Obama it is a job destroying requirement.

    I think part of the problem has been the lawsuits against the law, which were finally resolved a year ago. There were injunctions and other roadblocks put in place. Some actions simply could be taken until those lawsuits were resolved.
