Delay the individual mandate

The rollout of Healthcare.gov has been a complete disaster. Stories of the site malfunctioning are being reported everywhere. Regular Americans are having extreme difficulty signing up.

Liberals like Senator Joe Manchin and entertainer Jon Stewart (“The Daily Show”) think a delay of the individual mandate would be a good idea. Some Obama-supporters are beginning to face increased costs for health care.

Health care companies are laying off Medicare doctors in droves. For instance, United HealthCare just fired thousands of Medicare Advantage doctors. That means less supply of care. Congress exempted itself from ObamaCare. Obama delayed the mandate for Big Business. Why shouldn't mandate be delayed for all the American people?

Delaying the individual mandate is the only "fair" option. It's a policy both liberals and conservatives should support.
