“Democrats, Media Slam President Romney Over Health Care Law Changes,” Charles C.W. Cooke writes in a brilliantly crafted dispatch tossed over the transom from an alternate universe:
Washington D.

In a terse release, posted without fanfare to the Department of Health and Human Services website, officials revealed that the law‚Äôs employer mandate would be suspended until 2016 for all businesses that employ between 50 and 99 people.
The move comes hot on the heels of news that the agency would not be enforcing the provisions in the law that require Americans to buy approved health insurance until after the next election. Now, as then, a simple explanation was forthcoming. ‚ÄúThe president won,‚ÄĚ a White House aide told National Review Online. ‚ÄúHis disdain for the law was ratified by the people. Now he‚Äôs going to fundamentally transform it.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúThis is an utter disgrace,‚ÄĚ griped Senator Chuck Schumer (D, N.Y). ‚ÄúThis law was passed through Congress, signed by the previous president, and upheld by the Supreme Court.‚ÄĚ
