Saying it has heard business' concerns regarding the complexity of reporting requirements and the amount of time to implement changes, the Obama administration is delaying a key part of the Affordable Care Act for another year: the mandate that most employers – those with at least 50 employees on their payrolls – offer them health insurance or pay a penalty.
