    Obamacare individual mandate delayed

    Good or bad idea. Your thoughts...


    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration says it's granting a six-week extension until March 31 for Americans to sign up for coverage next year and avoid new tax penalties under the president's health care overhaul law.

    Monday's move had been expected since White House spokesman Jay Carney promised quick action last week to resolve a "disconnect" in the implementation of the law. Technical problems continue to trouble the website that's supposed to be the main enrollment vehicle for people who don't get health care at work.
    Under the new policy, people who sign up by the end of open enrollment season won't face a penalty.
    Previously you had to sign up by the middle of February, so your coverage would take effect March 1.
    The extension is for 2014 only.

    The date for sign up to avoid penalties is unchanged. The enrollment deadline has been pushed back a month.

    The only way they can delay the actual mandate is if they kick everyone off the exchange policies they purchased. Should only affect about a dozen people.

    This doctor was telling people on the 4th. Now with the New Problems that came about yesterday with the Obamacare Site. Obama will end up having to push it back even more. Now even more Democrats are coming out to call for a delay on the mandate.


    President Obama will delay his health insurance mandate.....

    A current protestation aside, President Obama is going to have to delay the individual mandate that penalizes consumers for not carrying health insurance under Obamacare. The President can’t force people to have healthcare coverage when they can’t even purchase it on the law’s signature exchanges.

    Despite the Obama Administration’s refrain that the IT woes are a sign of heavy web traffic, or are just temporary glitches, the problems are far more systemic. They are unlikely to be soon resolved.

    The issues are unlikely to be mere coding errors, but stem from the way the modules are constructed to speak to different systems and networks.

    This is especially true when it comes to communicating with the state Medicaid systems, which are often decades behind current IT standards. Some are still operating on the COBOL programming language.

    It is likely that large chunks of this middleware will need to be re-written, or was never firmly in place form the start.

    HHS boasts about the web traffic that the exchanges have garnered. A lot of those hits must be Washington journalists and curious politicos. Because the embarrassing truth, which is seeping out of insurers, is that enrollment rates in many states are running in the single digits.

    In the meantime, President Obama is going to have to suspend his individual mandate, despite his political positioning in the current budget battles. People can’t be fined for not having something that they can’t purchase.....snip~

    Looks like Obama is not having a smooth start to his second term.....Karma maybe?

    Sounds good to me
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    That's the leftwing meme, and now the leader of the free world and author of this monstrosity is committing genocide.

    Does this mean they compromised on the Debt Ceiling?
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.
