Democratic trickery on Obamacare, why they are selectively delaying parts of the law
Potentially, Republicans may get a two-year delay of the 2.3 percent medical device tax in the law, given the levy’s unpopularity even among Democrats. Moreover, in recent days, Republicans have been asking for a requirement for income verification of Obamacare subsidies as part of a deal.
But it remains to be seen whether Democrats will accept those Obamacare demands, especially since they have drawn a hard-line against any negotiations and instead called for a “clean” increase to the national debt ceiling and extension of government funding. . . .
