Flashback: Remember When Obama Regarded Obamacare as 'Settled Law'?

On Monday, the Obama administration tossed out yet another delay in Obamacare's employer mandate. Just six months ago, President Obama fought hammer and sickle to preserve every letter of his "settled law." Here's a excerpt from his weekly radio address, October 5, 2013.

"Stop this farce. End this shutdown now," Obama said. "The American people don’t get to demand ransom in exchange for doing their job. Neither does Congress. They don’t get to hold our democracy or our economy hostage over a settled law. They don’t get to kick a child out of Head Start if I don’t agree to take her parents’ health insurance away. That’s not how our democracy is supposed to work. That's why I won't pay a ransom in exchange for reopening the government."

The shutdown happened because some Republicans wanted to delay implementation of the law.
