The Obama administration is reportedly delaying enforcement of another aspect of ObamaCare, one that prohibits employers from providing better health benefits to top executives than those being offered to regular employees.
According to The New York Times, tax officials said they would not enforce the provision in 2014 as they had not yet issued the appropriate regulations.
The Affordable Care Act, commonly known as ObamaCare, says employer-sponsored health plans must not discriminate in favor of highly compensated individuals with respect to either eligibility or benefits, and provides a tax break for employer-sponsored insurance, while demanding employers not provide better coverage to higher-paid employees.
Yet Bruce I. Friedland, a spokesman for the I.R.S., told the New York Times that employers would not have to comply until the agency issued regulations or other guidance.

The law is whatever they want it to be.
They are in “Just Wing It” mode.
And of course Congress exempted themselves from their own provision
White House reportedly delays ObamaCare equal coverage provision
This isn’t about Obama, this is about whoever is responsible for stopping him or any despot from doing such a thing. If a guy that everyone knew knocked over liquor stores every Friday night was just walking around free, would your anger be directed at him, or at the police and DA?
Laws???!!!??? We don’t need no steenkin’ laws.
So the law really says that it's whatever the president tells the SHHS at the cabinet level. That's why Pelosi said we had to pass it to see what's in it. She forgot to mention we had to wake up each morning and read the news to find out what it's morphed into at the whim of the executive for pandering to whatever group has the most bag men bringing cash to the pig of body politic.
Because some animal are more equal than others
I guess inequality is only okay when the Dems allow it. [/s]
Just like Saddam
the law was whatever he said it was
What difference, at this point, does it make??
That is so un-American
Obamacare is like an amoeba.
That’s why the IRS hired 15,000 attorneys and accountants to administer it.
It is really "ObamaCare, originally called the Affordable Care Act before Obama began trouncing, eliminating, rewriting and delaying direct provisions of the law".
“ObamaCare, one that prohibits employers from providing better health benefits to top executives than those being offered to regular employees. “
A MAJOR step towards communism and total government control. I don’t think most people realize the serious implications of this — “everyone is EQUAL” — no perks for executives that you don’t provide to your mailroom clerk.
How do you think businesses can stay in business that way?
And when they can’t, the government will step in and take everything over, not just healthcare.
In communist countries there were no privately owned businesses, that’s why the whole system became insolvent.
This is where we are going — total government control and communism, the real goal of Obama.
When they do issue ‘rules’, watch them then pronounce that infractions of these new rules are retroactive, and they go after the companies with lawsuits & fines.
Soon to be known as ... (Zerocare)
This should not be allowed. But it will go by without a whimper. The opposition just naval gazes.
This is reminiscent of Lenin's "War Communism". Immediately after Lenin and his Bolsheviks achieved power they went full tilt on putting their idiotic marxist theories into practice. Lo and behold, the Russian economy totally fell apart. To save their positions of power and weather the crisis of civil war and economic collapse, the Bolsheviks relented on many of their pet schemes - until they had securely defeated their opposition. Then the marxist lunacy returned full blast. Obama hiding the most disfunctional, but most beloved of commies, aspects of ObamaCare for a while is the same strategy. All the worst of ObamaCare will be back once, with the help of the GOPe RINOs, the underlying system is securely in place.
