NBC called the Obamacare employer mandate "poorly written" and a "damaging moment":

"I think also in the reporting, losing that mandate is such a concession, it may not be the biggest piece of it, but it's a concession to the critics that something needs to be delayed, that something's not working. I think that's a politically damaging moment," said Andrea Mitchell.

"Well, they'll admit that the business mandate was poorly written, that they normally would have sought a legislative fix," Chuck Todd added.
