Obamacare Delay Eases Tension, for Now

The one-year delay in the enforcement of penalties for certain employers who fail to provide health insurance for their full-time (still defined as 30 hours per week, although that’s now being debated) employees isn’t only a relief for the employers, it’s probably pretty good news for a low-wage workforce that was about to get its hours slashed. Unskilled laborers who aren't going to get employer-provided health insurance anyway can at least have another year to plan for their unable-to-get-a-full-time-job future.

Detect a bit of cynicism? Of course. For the record, I'm 100 percent in favor of a health care solution – I just don't think our government has come close to finding it yet.
