Here’s the problem. Healthcare.gov is falling apart, and there isn’t enough time to fix it before the expected big enrollment push in Nov (per Time Magazine).
Obama’s seen the enrollment numbers, and is probably looking for an out. He’ll probably give in to the GOP for a 1-year delay, looking magnanmous “for the bigger good” and buying time for the system to be rebuilt.
I like that they didn’t shut down the Obamacare website service, but it shut itself down.
