The Obama administration will announce later this week that it is postponing implementation (that would be "enforcement") of the employer mandate feature of Obamacare. Mike Dorning and Alex Wayne of Bloomberg are reporting:

...The decision will come in regulatory guidance to be issued later this week. It addresses vehement complaints from employer groups about the administrative burden of reporting requirements, though it may also affect coverage provided to some workers. 

They'll get it right.  Just a few more tweaks.  All part of this new process whereby a bill must first be passed before we can learn what is in it.  And, then, go back and fix it.
