New ObamaCare delay to help Democrats in midterm elections

The Obama administration is set to announce another major delay in implementing the Affordable Care Act, easing election pressure on Democrats.

As early as this week, according to two sources, the White House will announce a new directive allowing insurers to continue offering health plans that do not meet ObamaCare’s minimum coverage requirements.

Prolonging the “keep your plan” fix will avoid another wave of health policy cancellations otherwise expected this fall.
The cancellations would have created a firestorm for Democratic candidates in the last, crucial weeks before Election Day.

The White House is intent on protecting its allies in the Senate, where Democrats face a battle to keep control of the chamber.

“I don’t see how they could have a bunch of these announcements going out in September,” one consultant in the health insurance industry said. “Not when they’re trying to defend the Senate and keep their losses at a minimum in the House. This is not something to have out there right before the election.”

    The GOP has continually – over 45 times – voted for repeals, delays, stays of implementation, etc. Now Obama gives another delay. I don’t understand what the issue is. He’s giving you exactly what you want. Just not on the GOP’s terms. Once again, the MSM – aka FOX – is reading this as a political move, when it’s really a move to get the system to work better for the people and businesses.

    By the way, did you see the headline in the LA Times from Feb 21st?: “Maybe there are no genuine Obamacare horror stories?”,0,3801120.story

    Hopefully, how you play the game determines whether you win or lose.

    Why is the president being allowed to nullify the lawmaking branch of our government?? He continually exceeds the scope of his authority and not one word comes out of congress to stop it. Can you say dictator???

    Obozzo thinks he can just rewrite the law to suit his political will. WHY don’t the Republicans challenge this in court NOW??????? This lawlessness must be stopped.
