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.

Thereabouts is open for interpretation!
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.
Obama’s Valentine Day Massacre!!!
Will you have the system up and running by then, homes?
I get it illegals get welfare and food stamps but citizens who don’t want to play his socialist games get fines. Yes this really does define the obambat.
Obama need the money, Hon
I think they planning on whole lot of grateful libs paying the “fine” and thinking they got off cheaper to do so
a tax is a tax
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.
Happy Valentines day, citizen!
You can pick up your greeting from the govt
Just trying to stampede the herd to boost the numbers. Not going to happen. FUBO.
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.
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.
Thank you, Justice Roberts. /s
Or as those Commies, Rage Against the Machine proclaimed, “F You...I Won’t Do What You Tell Me!”
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.
So a Valentine’s Day Massacre?
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”.
“will soon be negative”
What exactly do you mean by "you"?
Because Roberts went into great detail about who "you" is.
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.
