Round 2 of ObamaCare enrollment to be delayed until after 2014 midterms

The Obama administration plans to delay the start of next year’s ObamaCare enrollment period, a move pitched as a way to give consumers and insurance companies more time to study their options — but which also conveniently pushes the second round of enrollment past the 2014 midterm elections.

A Department of Health and Human Services official confirmed the change to Fox News. The decision does not affect those trying to enroll this year, despite the myriad problems with the launch of the law and HealthCare.gov. Rather, it affects those who will sign up late next year for 2015 coverage.

The administration will allow consumers to start signing up on Nov. 15, 2014, as opposed to Oct. 15. Enrollment will last until Jan. 15, 2015, instead of Dec. 7.

House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton, R-Mich., questioned why the administration would delay the second round of enrollment and not the current one.

“Another day, another delay, which begs the question, does the president think enrollment will be just as bad next year? It’s stunning to see the president so willing to delay next year’s open enrollment period rather than focus on the ongoing chaos and uncertainty that is plaguing implementation today,” he said in a statement.

    This came in my email…I wanted to share…
    The ugly truth about Obamacare……
    I hope everyone will forward this to everyone they know. It should be posted on Facebook.
    Read this about a guy who signed up for Obamacare and then found he couldn’t afford it so he dropped it. Very interesting.
    RE: OBAMACARE A comment posted on the Affordable Care Act/Obamacare FB page:
    “I actually made it through this morning at 8:00 AM. I have a preexisting condition (Type 1 Diabetes) and my income base was 45K-55K annually. I chose tier 2 “Silver Plan” and my monthly premiums came out to $597.00 with $13,988 yearly deductible!!! There is NO POSSIBLE way that I can afford this so I “opt-out” and chose to continue along with no insurance. I received an email tonight at 5:00 P.M. Informing me that my fine would be $4,037 and could be attached to my yearly income tax return. Then you make it to the “REPERCUSSIONS PORTION” for “non-payment” of yearly fine. First, your drivers license will be suspended until paid, and if you go 24 consecutive months with “Non-Payment” and you happen to be a home owner, you will have a federal tax lien placed on your home. You can agree to give your bank information so that they can easy “Automatically withdraw” your “penalties” weekly, bi-weekly or monthly! This by no means is “Free” or even “Affordable.” Kinda sheds a lot of light on all of the arming and beefing up of arms for all of the domestic departments INCLUDING the IRS now doesn’t it? There’s a war coming folks….

    Dem. WI. Rep. Kind assured me in a form letter, that there was nothing wrong with Obamacare and he will never vote to defund it.. He thinks it is good for America, so he obviously doesn’t care about the crashing sites and all the lies Obama told about it… Rep. Kind is just one of the hundreds of liberals in congress that all feel the same way, they will support and defend Obama and Obamacare, till hell freezes over…

    yep gonna try and trick the low information DEMOCRAP voters that voted fro this unqualified man to run this country. I hope that all americans show up and give the republicans the senate so we can get rid of HARRY REID. Shame on the people of Nevada that voted for this man who is an american hater. Sharon Engval was a better choice but DINGY HARRY won because his son is the head of the election bureau in Nevada. Think there is anything wrong about that????
