Proceeding as Forseen

Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen, which isn't a terribly prescient prognostication.  It's as plain as the nose on your face.  Earlier this week, I predicted that the roll out of the employer mandate would cause grief for the current ruling party, set as it was to roll out just about the time that voters choose their representatives.
Your next huge problem, Mr. President, is coming next October, when the employer mandate rolls out. That market is a lot larger than the individual market and will impact a lot more people, on an order of magnitude.  If you botch that implementation, Congress will probably become bright red,
And look what was being reported this morning.
Health and Human Services plans to delay the start of the second year of Obamacare enrollment by one month to allow insurers more time to set rates after assessing their plan experiences during 2014, a department official said Thursday night.
Isn't that amazing, what with the mid-term elections happening about that time, HHS has decided to move the mandate back a month.  Can they be more politically predictable?  If I were Kathleen Sebelius, I'd be trying to corner the market on tar, feathers, and rails like Homeland tried to corner the market on ammo.
