Obamacare implementation extended

So the President decided to suspend the Obamacare implementation until 2015 instead of 2014 because of the hardship it is placing on businesses of 50 or more. It seems to be hurting the economy and adversely affecting the job market. They have found it is causing a rise in premiums for personal insurance and if an individual fails to buy the insurance they will be fined. The end result is that it is costing more money than was expected. By the way, it is the law of the land; passed by Congressional democrats, tested by the Supreme Court and found Constitutional. So can the President simply change the law that explicitly states a timetable for implementation? Doesn't that make it a new law? I thought Congress formulated the laws and the Administration implemented and enforced the laws. Finally, even by expanding the time for implementation by one year (after the mid-term elections) will the effects of implementation be any different in 2015 from the impact if it had been implemented in 2014?
