It Couldn't Have Happened to a Nicer Law
How unpopular is ObamaCare? Now Obama is trying to untangle its mess:
Senior administration officials said Mr. Obama would reveal to the National Governors Association in a speech on Monday morning that he backs legislation that would enable states to request federal permission to withdraw from the law’s mandates in 2014 rather than in 2017. The earlier date is when many of the act’s central provisions take effect, including requirements that most individuals obtain health insurance and that employers of a certain size offer coverage to workers or pay a penalty.
Politically-connected business can opt out of ObamaCare. Politically-connected unions can opt out of ObamaCare. Now even the states can opt out of ObamaCare. The only ones left stuck with the damn thing are you and me.
