Editorial Says Employer Mandate Delay Is Not a Detour
A Sacramento Bee editorial argues that the Obama administration's decision to delay for one year a requirement that large companies provide health insurance coverage to workers "is a bump in the road, not a detour down a wrong path." According to the editorial, "The real issue is whether [the delay] will lead large employers to drop coverage." However, it states, "many observers believe that ... we'd be better off with a system in which people could buy insurance on their own ... rather than obtaining insurance through an employer."
