Delay All Of The Mandates

The Obamacare employer mandate will be delayed for another year.  Just another reminder that Democrats are at least as much panderers to big business as Republicans.

The reasonable implication that I could draw from this (and that Yuval Levin has drawn) is that we should also delay the individual mandate.

On the other hand, here’s an interesting take.  Given that John Roberts declared the mandates as taxes, the Obama administration has essentially said that the IRS will not collect certain forms of taxes.  Is that even legal?  If so, the next Republican administration should, as a precursor to repealing Obamacare altogether, declare a moratorium on all Obamacare-related activities, including collection of taxes or enforcement of regulations.
