Paying more for direct labor costs while not getting any increase in production from it does not make good business sense.

    Because it's not fact

    The employer mandate was not postponed. Only the reporting requirements were postponed, which makes it impossible to determine who is adhering to the mandate.

    How exactly do you know it isn't a fact? How many lies does this Administration have to tell your or how many inaccurate estimates does the CBO have to give before you stop believing what you are told and do your own DD? How many changes has Obama made to the Congressional Law passed and how accurate has his predictions been? Why should any business believe what they are being told by this Administration. Don't expect an answer but have to ask?

    Pelosi and the other Dems are now on record saying that the employer madate will not be postponed again, like it was just postponed recently:


    Democrats fought back Sunday against claims from a former Obama aide that the White House might delay Obamacare’s employer mandate.

    House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi called the mandate, which requires businesses with between 50 and 100 employees to provide health insurance for workers or face a penalty, “integral.”


    and later in the article:


    The comments come after former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs claimed that the mandate, which has already been delayed twice, would be “one of the first things to go,” as different facets of Obama’s signature health care law continued to run into hurdles.

    “I don’t think the employer mandate will go into effect. It’s a small part of the law,” Gibbs told a trade group during a speech last week



    Time will tell how honest they're being.

    Democrats say White House won

    want to wager on the accuracy of their report? What liberals want to ignore is that this Administration is always the first to tout success and the last to be forthcoming on failures. They are misleading the American people on ACA just like they are taking credit for an unemployment rate and number distorted because of the high numbers of discouraged workers. In Spite of the request to tell us how discouraged workers affect the unemployment rate I will answer the question, the discouraged results distort the official unemployment rate because they aren't counted in the official number

    They still believe, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that the rise of the oceans began to slow and the planet began to heal when he was elected. Words mean little to leftists, it's their feelings that matter. There is nothing Barrack Obama can say or do that a leftist would see as stupid or wrong.

    I only see one group of people calling statistics from non-partisan groups lies with zero evidence to support them and using that to criticize others for not being swayed by facts.

    Mental gymnastics.
