Obama Pulls Obamacare ‘Success’ Rug Out From Under Democrat Sales Pitch

-By Warner Todd Huston

As the Democrat National Committee was gearing up to send an email to supporters that touted the great success of the Affordable Care Act (or Obamacare), the White House was announcing that it was instituting yet another delay in implementing the flailing law.

The White House announced today that the employer mandate has been delayed again after having been delayed once last year.

With Obama’s newest fiat decision to alter a law without congressional action–an illegal act by any reckoning–employers with 100 workers or less won’t have to provide insurance to workers until 2016.

But even more amusingly, the DNC was sending out fundraising mailings touting the great success of Obamacare just as the White House was making these unilateral changes.

So, if Obamacare is such a great success, why is Obama constantly altering it and giving breaks to favored pals and select groups so that they don’t have to suffer under the law?

Big time fail all the way around, don’t you think?
