King Obama May Decree Another Three-Year Extension for ObamaCare

Conveniently timed to allow the ascension of Queen Hillary. Geez, their internal polling numbers must be brutal.

The Obama administration is considering an extension of the president’s decision to let people keep their individual insurance policies even if they are not compliant with the health care overhaul, according to two top industry officials.

Avalere Health CEO Dan Mendelson said Thursday that the administration may let policyholders keep that coverage for an additional three years, stressing that no decision has been made. Policymakers are waiting to see what rate hikes health insurers plan for the insurance exchanges that are key to the overhaul’s coverage expansions.

“The administration is entertaining a range of options to ensure that this individual market has stability to it and that would be one thing that they could do,” he said.

Avalere Health is a market analysis firm, but Mendelson said his company was not advising the administration on exchange policy. He said he has had informal discussions with administration officials about the extension, but he didn’t identify them.

A spokeswoman for the Department of Health and Human Services, Joanne Peters, said “We are continuing to examine all sorts of ways to provide consumers with more choices and to smooth the transition as we implement the law.”

So helpful of them. How about just scrapping it like the majority of Americans want?

    “Avalere Health CEO Dan Mendelson said Thursday that the administration may let policyholders keep that coverage for an additional three years, stressing that no decision has been made. “

    You can bet that the Republican establishment will simply whine about it should it happen. They won’t do a thing to try to nullify the arbitrary and illegal “extensions” that the current lawless administration dispenses at its pleasure, or to hit back in some other manner.

    The Republicans as they are currently constituted are beyond useless.

    Nothing Obama does will surprise me.
    Well, one thing; leaving the white house in January 2017 without being forced out. That would be a surprise.

    If you want affordable health care offered in a price-competitive environment, start thinking about advocating the abolition of government-enforced licensing schemes, such as that in medicine. This is what created the guild monster that has been progressively (fortuitous word, eh?) raping you and your family for the past hundred years. Abolish licensing at the federal level, and you are half-way back to a free country.

    Wait isn’t that the royal decree that came so late most insurance commissioners ignored? Most insurance companies can’t turn on a dime and start offering policies based on King Barry’s latest speech that he gave in front of a half full auditorium at some junior college.

    Won’t matter. The big employers will still start dumping millions onto the exchanges next year.

    Get your elective stuff done now! It’s going to be a bumpy ride.

    This is getting pretty bad for the Dems. Expect for someone to drop a single-payer bill into the clerk’s in-box before November. I would expect Stark to do this but he got tossed. Who’s the next biggest pimp for single-payer?
