Paychex: no clarity on ACA from the Supreme Court ruling

Local Rochester payroll company Paychex has issued a statement regarding the SCOTUS decision on ACA. Namely: that while the mandate has been upheld, there are still implementation questions to answer:

The Supreme Court’s decision does not bring final clarity to the issue of health insurance coverage in the United States, and there is still much uncertainty surrounding its long term impact on employer-sponsored group health coverage. Additionally, the impact of this year’s elections on the law and its implementation is not yet known.

Of course, this is basically a sales pitch for a company whose primary roles, as stated in the press release, are payroll and benefits services. Uncertainty benefits them so long as they look like The Great Clarifier.

Still, I can’t help but wonder about the dangled question of elections. Are they just trying to maintain a marketable vagueness, or are they legitimately pushing for “regime change” in Washington?
