For John, BLUF: PP&ACA doesn't actually fix the problems we have. Nothing to see here; just move along.
The Daily Caller talks about opposition to implementation of the PP&ACA, at least until after the 2016 election. It turns out it isn't just Senator Ted Cruz who has problems with the legislation. Here is the headline—"EXCLUSIVE: Democratic Senators Beg For Another Obamacare Delay". "Another" delay. Not the first?
The issue is a rule change that puts companies with 51 to 100 employees in the costlier “small group” market instead of the “large group” market. "Costlier" means higher premiums, which means an added burden on small businesses.
The Senators sent a letter to the Secretary of Health and Human Services, Sylvia Matthews Burwell.
The letter was signed by Democratic Sens. Claire McCaskill, Heidi Heitkamp, Chris Coons, Joe Manchin, Joe Donnelly and Jon Tester and independent Sen. Angus King, who caucuses with the Democrats.Repeal or kicking implementation down the road may be a distinction without a difference.
Hat tip to the Instapundit.

♠ For George, that would be Obamacare.
