Get covered by Valentine's Day to avoid fines [Obama makes another illegal change to Obamacare]
Associated Press ^ | October 9, 2013

WASHINGTON (AP) — You'll have to get coverage by Valentine's Day or thereabouts to avoid penalties for being uninsured, the Obama administration confirmed Wednesday.

That's about six weeks earlier than a March 31 deadline often cited previously.

This is one more example of Obama making an illegal change to Obamacare without approval from Congress.

You're right. This is not legal nor were any of the changes he made without Congress. While I have been a strong supporter of what Ted Cruz is doing this issue of illegal changes makes me think twice about how ObamaCare has been approached regarding the shutdown.

The common argument has been "the American people do not want it" or the "American people do not support the mandate" which is true but this argument implies that Obama's illegal changes were not a problem (as long as he makes fair illegal changes for all Americans).

Tell the American people that ObamaCare was not included because the President does not have a legal right to make changes all by himself. Period.

Then take it all the way to the USSC.

I, too, believe not enough of an issue has been made of Mr. Obama, arbitrarily and unilaterally, making changes to the ACA. He could do this on his own, but, couldn’t (wouldn’t) issue and Executive Order to pay families of military killed in action.

this looks to me like a misdirection play.

my understanding was, the deadline was always Jan !,
but for some reason the first enrollment period
was thru March.

Feb 15 is a delay, not an advancement.

I concur with the logic ... even if it gets to the SC on this basis, they already ruled Obamacare a “tax” and no President or lackey Cabinet Sec’y has the authority to impose or modify it.

The penalty starts as low as $95 for 2014, but escalates in subsequent years.

Is that $95 per month or per yesr?

They said they had to pass it to find out what’s in it. Then they said we passed it, so it’s settled law. If Feb. 15 is what’s in it, it ought to be settled.

Can someone please explain to me this:
Obamacare passed SCOTUS because Robert’s said it would if it were a tax. Correct?
Obamacare forces you to buy a service from an insurance company. This technically isn’t a tax
How can this still be Constitutional?
Are there any lawsuits?
Where do I sign up?

If it’s a delay, it’s still illegal, because it was done without Congressional approval.

Bama is just waiting for the payments to the Federal exchanges because he and the Congress will treat the money like the Social Security tax (FICA). They will pay claims from the cash flow and spend the rest on other gov’t projects. The initial money stream is positive but it soon be negative and then the death panels will “balance the books”.

Obamacare forces you to buy a service from an insurance company.

What exactly do you mean by "you"?

Because Roberts went into great detail about who "you" is.

The rollout of online insurance markets this month has been snarled by technical glitches that frustrated many consumers.

They're not "technical glitches". The programs are broken, or they never worked.

You would have to be insane, or a fool, or both, to go online and use broken software, or software that never worked.

You're just ASKING for your personal data to be stolen by hackers.
