The president’s recent decision to delay the employer mandate – again – is another of the Obama administration’s actions that have significantly changed the health overhaul law since it was enacted nearly four years ago.
By our count at the Galen Institute, this is the 18th major change to the law that the administration has made unilaterally and often in direct contradiction to legislative language.
The latest change delays until 2016 some provisions of the employer mandate that were required by the ACA to go into effect on January 1, 2014.
You can find at our website our full list of the 35 changes to ObamaCare…so far, which includes the 18 made by the administration, 15 changes passed by Congress and signed into law by the president (including 10 passed by the Republican House), and two in which the law was rewritten by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Obamacare is #WrongForAmerica. And it’s getting worse, not better.
