instaPoll: Do you support delaying the individual mandate now that the employer mandate has been delayed for one year?

On June 2, 2013, the administration announced that implementation of the employer mandate in the health care law would be delayed until 2015, due to “concerns about the complexity of the requirements and the need for more time to implement them effectively.” In response, today the House will vote on the Authority for Mandate Delay Act, H.R. 2667, to affirm halting the employer mandate, and the Fairness for American Families Act, H.R. 2668, to postpone implementation of the individual mandate as well. Under both bills, neither mandate would take effect until 2015. Last month, the Government Accountability Office published a report on the status of the federal health exchanges, noting that “certain factors, such as the still-unknown and evolving scope of the exchange activities…suggest a potential for implementation challenges going forward. And while the missed interim deadlines may not affect implementation, additional missed deadlines closer to the start of enrollment could do so.” Question of the week: Do you support delaying the individual mandate now that the employer mandate has been delayed for one year?
