The ACA won't work if the individual mandate is delayed. The GOP knows this very well, which is exactly why it's pushing the delay. The website should work within a month. People will then have until March 31st to sign up[INVALID]plenty of time. Plus, the flaws in most websites only show up when people try to use it in real time. Delaying the mandate to fix the website makes no sense. We'll go through the same thing next year.
