Of Course: New ObamaCare Delay Coming to Help Midterm Dems

Posted by on Mar 03, 2014 at 9:32 pm

While you’re all distracted by the situation in Ukraine, Obama pounces. Never let a crisis go to waste.

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.

So poof, just like that with his magic pen, Obama again rewrites his own law.

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.”

They assume people are going to forget they still want to take your insurance away and force you into this mess.
