Today the President unilaterally declared the non-implementation of a section of ObamaCare (ACA-Affordable Care Act) that seemingly will allow companies to postpone decisions about workers health care coverage and workers qualifications to fall under the program if they work more than 28 hours per week.
By what authority does he do this?
The law is the law and the effective dates is written in it, this can only be changed by an act of congress, not by a simple presidential speech. Or even an executive order.
So what happens if business owners act based on the postponement speech, fail to file the reports, fail to offer conforming healthcare programs or fail to pay the fines?
They are in violation of the law. They are subject to the many fines and penalties contained in the legislation.
If it looks too good to be true, it generally is.
