Deadline for health care enrollment open-ended

The Obama administration said Wednesday that it doesn’t know how many people will take advantage of the latest extension to buy insurance on the health care exchanges, in a move that signals just how determined President Obama is to make his law’s economics work.

The extension, which the administration leaked Tuesday and officially announced Wednesday, says those who tried to enroll before the March 31 deadline can have more time to finish their applications on the federally run exchanges.

Officials, though, said they won’t be checking to see whether people actually tried to enroll, which means anyone can use the extension. The officials also left the cutoff date open-ended, meaning it’s not clear when the final deadline will be.

“What the hell — is this, a joke?” House Speaker John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican, said Wednesday.

Critics complained bitterly about Mr. Obama’s latest decision to alter parts of the law that his own party pushed through Congress.

        Mine went up 330.00 for the monthly premiums. Just the premiuns are 3,960 more a year. The deductables are alot higher now too. It is a 70/30. I Had a 80/20. Can’t afford it, so I have to pay as you go cash. Wish they would scrap it and start all over.

    How awful that Obama wants to make the economics of ‘his’ law work. Of course “his” law was voted on by a majority of the Congress and given the stamp of approval even by the Conservative SCOTUS. Not a bad pedigree.
