During a press conference on Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked if she thinks there is “any virtue” in delaying Obamacare’s individual mandate as well as the employer mandate: “No. Absolutely not. I don’t think it’s virtuous at all,” Pelosi said. “In fact, the point is, is that the (business) mandate was not delayed,” Pelosi said.
“Certain reporting by businesses that could be perceived as onerous — that reporting requirement was delayed, partially to review how it would work and how it could be better.
“It was not a delay of the mandate for the businesses, and there shouldn’t be a delay of the mandate for individuals,” Pelosi insisted.
Unlike Pelosi, the Treasury Department’s Mark Mazur acknowledged that the mandate is delayed if the reporting requirements are delayed. “We recognize that this transition relief will make it impractical to determine which employers owe shared responsibility payments (under section 4980H) for 2014,” Mazur wrote. “Accordingly, we are extending this transition relief to the employer shared responsibility payments. These payments will not apply for 2014. Any employer shared responsibility payments will not apply until 2015.”

Damn, she's right.
The so-called "delay" is only the order to not prosecute nor collect the 2014 penalties in 2014. The penalties for 2014 will still be assessed but now won't be collected until 2015 (along with interest) and the penalties for 2015 .
