Last month, 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.” When I asked you whether the individual mandate should be delayed as well, 76.1% said yes. Following administrative delay of a major piece of the law, and a vote in the House to also postpone the individual mandate, debate in Congress has now turned from delaying implementation to defunding the health care law as part of any measure to fund the federal government for the next fiscal year. Funding for Fiscal Year 2013 runs out on September 30th. Before that date, Congress must agree on funding for Fiscal Year 2014, which begins October 1st and runs through September 30th of next year. Question of the week: Do you believe that trying to defund the health care law is worth risking a government shutdown? ( ) Yes. ( ) No. ( ) I don’t know. ( ) Other. Take the Poll here.
