Another Illegal Obamacare Edict?
American Spectator ^ | 3/6/2014 | David Catron

President Obama is planning to break the law, once again, in an effort to protect vulnerable Democrats in the Senate. According to news reports, “the White House will announce a new directive allowing insurers to continue offering health plans that do not meet Obamacare’s minimum coverage requirements.” In the absence of this “directive,” health insurance companies would have to cancel millions of health policies just a few weeks before November’s congressional elections. Obama’s edict would theoretically forestall, until after those crucial midterms, a tsunami of voter outrage that would inevitably drown the reelection prospects of many Democrats.

It’s not clear, however, that another delay of this Obamacare provision will save the Democrats.

Evidently, Ted Cruz was right. After screwing up millions of American families’ health plans, Obummer will delay implementation, not just for one year to get through the Senate elections, but two years to get through the presidential election in 2016.

Obama really should give credit to Sen. Cruz, who apparently was the only one in D. C. who was smart enough to figure out last September that ObamaCare was an American disaster of epic proportions.

I wonder if buried somewhere in the law’s 2000 pages there is a clause that allows Obozo or other administrator to make changes in implementation? I haven’t heard anyone address this.

The GOP lead house should lead the effort to delay the implementation of ObamaCare until a year after Obama leaves office. This will give his successor a year to hopefully repeal the entire law.

I have heard that their is a clause that allows some changes, but that those do not apply to the implementation of the law.

I just got a letter from my provider, Geisinger, stating that “I could keep my current plan, it’d be ‘legal’, for only $51.03/mo additional over what I’m now paying ($475/mo)”, after 3/31 expiration date. I will auto-go on Medicare in Sept (Dec b-day), but was planning to switch to Highmark BlueShield in the interim, but now I’m back to plan comparisons.

Think Medicare advantage....... it really is an advantage.

Health care aside...... the insurer deals with medicare for you. That is a big deal.

That’s what I’m thinking, too; thanks for your advice.
