Obamacare sign-up for small businesses delayed a year

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.

Small businesses have been able to apply through paper applications since Oct. 1, and HHS will announce alternative sign-up methods, like enrolling through an agent or broker or directly through an insurer.

“We’ve concluded that we can best serve small employers by continuing this offline process while we concentrate on both creating a smoothly functioning online experience in the SHOP Marketplace, and adding key new features, including an employee choice option and premium aggregation services, by November 2014,” according to the HHS notice.

    If the LAW says it’s supposed to happen now, how can the administration change the LAW without going through Congress? It seems Obama thinks he doesn’t need Congress.

    So here we have another prime example of Obama being a hypocrite. According to his highness nothing was wrong with Oblundercare & the GOP was holding a gun to his head for negotiations on the GOV shutdown. The GOP was a terrorist group & there would be no negotiating or compromise. So the GOV was shut down. Now less than a few weeks after the shut down Oblamo is still trying to blame others for his fiasco & is, behind closed doors, trying to fix the very same things that the GOP said was wrong with Oblundercare. Yet the urine carriers for Obama still see this through Oblamo & Reid’s eyes. The eyes of deceit &lies.
