EVERYTHING the administration is saying is a lie. The only reason for delaying the 2014 enrollment period (for 2015 policies) is so the public will not have access to the massively soaring premiums for all the Exchange policies that will be displayed on the enrollment website.
The administration KNOWS that these premiums will be soaring and their exposure would be the death knell for MANY, MANY Democrats running for reelection in early November. They want the low information voters to vote Democrat in early November and only later in mid-November will they be able to see those massive premium increases.
Oh don’t worry. They will know. If the elections were in November 2013, they would have been defeated big time because notices went out 90 days before which happens to be before November. If Democrats were smart (thankfully they are not), they would have had the extension go until March 2015 and then they would be sorta home free. This is going to be an ongoing disaster for the Democrats for awhile. Oh sure it will die down for a bit but it will come barreling back next early Fall.
