WASHINGTON - President Obama will allow insurance companies to continue offering individual health plans that do not meet the standards of the Affordable Care Act through next year, according to a Democratic source on Capitol Hill familiar with the plans.
The plan, which the president will announce Thursday morning, is intended to placate millions of consumers who have received cancellation notices from insurers in recent weeks. Obama had repeatedly promised that consumers would be able to keep plans that they liked.
The president was under intense pressure from Democrats on Capitol Hill to find a fix. House Democrats have increasingly threatened to support a Republican proposal due for a vote Friday. And Democratic senators have offered their own legislative fixes.

And the 5 million who have already lost their plans?
He will allow it?
But its the law of the land, remember??
HAIL OBAMA...ALL POWERFUL!!!
THIS IS TYRANNY!!
The flies are the perfect touch.
The MSM is O’s rubber stamp
That is nice of him. We Have now officially became a Banana Republic. The next step is the abolition of Congress because since the people now have Obama as their king, Congress serves no useful purpose and the money allocated to it can now be applied the reducing the National Debt or toward supporting the people’s king in the manner he is used to.
So a President can now create, change, amend, ignore or provide his own exemptions from acts of Congress...
Congratulations America — You have installed your first dictator!
Obama, Criminal in Charge.
Change laws whenever he wants.
Ignore laws whenever he wants.
Congress passes a law and the President signs it into law.
The Great Dictator then pronounces the law delayed, modified, changed, and in general ignored.
None of the Republican leadership wonders whether this is a Presidential Power.
If it is, could he please delay my due date for my income taxes?
Obama does not have the authority to do this as he did not have the authority to give some companies and unions exemptions. Those policies have been canceled. They no longer exist.
This is political Cover Your Ass. When the insurance companies do not renew the discontinued policies he will wage a political war of rhetoric against the Insurance Companies. Their game plan is, “its not my fault.”
That's what I figured -- months to do it.
In the meantime people's plans are expiring.
I agree, it would be a big administrative mess.
Obama is half an hour late for his press conference. He’s probably in the bathroom waiting for the Imodium to kick in...
Illegal for one year then everyone is screwed again after he re elects democrats.
Blame insurance companies. Thats exactly the purpose.
All these insurance companies have spent millions to conform. They can’t undo what Obama forced on them.
The US government is at war with its own people.
Makes my stomach retch.
Precisely my point. It’s quite maddening.
.... The Prez with a fez is almost a half hour late .... bet he is waiting for Rush to start his show in order to have it pre-empted.
