In "Rather than rushing, get Obamacare right" , Newsday attempts to soft-pedal the administration's postponement of the employer mandate. The real purpose of the delay is to allow the Democrats to duck the issue in the 2014 elections.

Newsday states that Obamacare is now the law, so we should all work to see it implemented. Prohibition was once the law, but when the country experienced its failure, it was repealed.

What makes anyone think that this inept, failing and scandal-ridden administration would be able to cobble together a monstrous health care plan, ram it through Congress, inflict it on the public and get anything but disastrous results? It will eventually collapse under its own weight.
