Washington Post: Obamacare’s price tag has just gone up by $12 billion, due to the White House’s decision to delay the employer mandate until 2015. The vast majority of that increase ($10 billion) reflects a reduction in the penalties that the government would have collected from employers who did not comply with the requirement to provide health insurance. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2013/07/30/obamacare-mandate-delay-costs-12-billion-cuts-insurance-coverage/
