Federal Firing Squad?

If you are confronting implementation of the Affordable Care Act (aka: ACA/Obamacare), you know how confusing the law is.  Just to add to your perplexities, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed three suits against different employers over their wellness programs. The lawsuits not only threaten employers, but also threaten the support of the most influential group that once favored the law itself.
The effect is as if the Federal Government has formed a circular firing squad with employers in the middle.
The result is The Business Roundtable is planning to meet with the President to discuss the matter. The Roundtable is a group of CEOs from over 200 large US corporations. Apparently there is a chance that the Roundtable could withdraw its support and join the opponents of the law that will be constituting a new majority in the Senate and an even larger majority in the House.
