Marking the latest HealthCare.gov setback, the Obama administration today will announce a yearlong delay of online enrollment for small businesses looking to purchase health coverage through federal-run exchanges, according to an HHS notice obtained by POLITICO.
Once again we have the Obama administration delaying Obamacare consequences in order to protect vulnerable Democrats running for re-election in 2014; there is no other explanation for it. There is no reason to delay enrollment till after the 2014 elections unless you don’t want people to experience the effects of the law. How this is possibly legal, I don’t know; and it is infuriating that the administration keeps arguing that “its the law, we reject any attempts to change or delay it” and yet has no problem with delaying the law, and/or changing requirements in the law to suit their purposes. Once again, Republicans need to hammer this hard; if they don’t, they will make it that much harder for themselves to keep the House and take the Senate back from the Democrats.
