WASHINGTON, Feb 10 (Reuters) - The Obama administration on Monday relaxed final rules for businesses that must comply with the Affordable Care Act in 2015, sparing businesses with 99 employers or fewer the tax penalty until 2016.
In final regulations to be published on Monday by the Treasury Department, businesses with between 50 and 99 employees will not face a penalty until 2016 for not providing healthcare.
For businesses with 100 or more employees, the final rules reduce to 70 percent the number of full-time workers to whom an employer must offer coverage in 2015. Businesses are required to offer coverage to 95 percent of their employees in 2016 and beyond.
The Obama administration last July delayed for employers the ACA penalties and reporting requirements until 2015. Most individuals face a tax penalty for not having healthcare coverage in 2014.

I can't understand how the law passed by the House and Senate and signed by the President can be "relaxed" "not enforced" are "changed" at the administration's discretion. Isn't this a sign that we no longer have a republic any longer?
Almost right. the worst part is that that the cover up will be successful as a majority of the American public will buy into it, thus insuring even more devastating consequences.
Business must provide healthcare ???????? does that even sound right ? well it does to the entitlement/hate business and the rich crowd, but with anybody with a brain you know that when you socialize anything its a disaster.
Remember kids, if your 20 and not a liberal, you dont have a heart. If your forty and not a conservative, you dont have a brain !
weren't these the same issues one side tried to get approved and held until further research and the other side was so against it they allowed the government to shut down?
