Theres still time to get enrolled thanks to the administrations new, wigglier deadline ___
Today is officially the last day to sign up for health insurance in order to get coverage in 2014 and avoid a fine for being uninsured under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). A slew of exemptions have effectively extended the deadline indefinitely, however.
If youve started an application by 11:59PM tonight, you can complete it after the deadline and still receive coverage in 2014. Even if you havent started an application by tonight, youre allowed to apply after the deadline if you experienced website errors, were given misinformation by an ACA worker, were the victim of exceptional circumstances, or fit into one of another seven categories.
These claims will not be audited and there is no penalty for lying. "Most people are truthful when applying for those benefits," Julie Bataille, the director of communications for the Health and Human Services department that oversees the insurance marketplace, told reporters last week.

WHOO HOO. I’m a federal criminal in 6 more hours.
When half the country refuses to kneel to their stoopid “health care” plan, something will happen that will scare even the morons in DC.

What is this ACA you speak of?
so long as they have under/around 3 million enrollees,they will extend it to June/July, or whenever they get 7 Million people(maybe even dead people) signed up.
All TALK NO ACTION!
What do you expect from the Liar in Chief?
Even if you get dinged it will be in any tax refund. So manage your withholding so you are owed nothing.
My wife and I are both under Medicare & an insurance supplement.
But I expect the future quality of care to significantly decrease.
Even if it hurts me personally, IT IS TIME TO DOWNSIZE DC! Close entire Rogue/Unconstitutional Departments.
If I have to support my family by growing my own food on the farm, so be it. It is stupid, but I can.
I refuse to participate in the destruction of the nation.
I will be in DC on May 16th. Unsure of where that is going, but none the less feel compelled to be there.
Democrat Socialist President Franklin D. Roosevelt decreed wage and price controls on all US Companies during WW2.
To entice employees to join their company, increased wages were not allowed, but fringe benefits were allowed. Thus, partially paid insurance policies were offered to lure potential workers to join their company.
Not to be outdone, Democrat Socialist President Lyndon B. Johnson offered Medicare to lure voters to vote for his approved Democrat Socialist Candidates, including himself, naturally.
Of course the consumer pays for the insurance policy that a private company employee has with his company, and the taxpayer pays for all Federal Government insurance policies.
Thus, for private companies to drop all insurance policies that they partially provide for their employees will lower the cost of goods and services to the consumer.
In like manner, ending all Federal Insurance programs will lower the amount of taxes that the taxpayer pays.
Insurance is an un-neccesary expense for private companies.
Insurance is an frivolous expense for Governments to charge to taxpayers.
Private Companies should own and manage insurance companies who sell insurance to individuals in insurance pools set by these same companies.
Governments should be forbidden from offering any insurance products, as the function of Government is to provide a workable regulation basis, with NO conflict of interest.
IOW, the entity that regulates should not also be a provider of what they regulate.
Today the greed to buy votes by both political parties has bankrupted the entire US Federal Government.
Accordingly, the Democrat Socialists and Democrat Communists have joined forces to Nationalize 1/6 th of the US Economy to pay for their previous vote buying greed with the illegal passage of Obama Socialized Health Insurance Tax, or OSHIT.
Not to be outdone, the RINOs have their own replacement plan entitled RSHIT.
Candidate Mrs. Bill Clinton will probably have her own replacement plan entitled CSHIT.
OSHIT, RSHIT and CSHIT all have the common con-artist flaw that the youth will fund the old.
This will never happen as the taxes paid by the youth are minimal, and all Federal Programs are paid aways paid out of the General Fund.
There are no Federal Trust Funds, because the Federal Government goes broke 60 % into each year, every year!
IOW, whatever monies are left over from paying the expenses of OSHIT policy holders, will be much less that the Federal expenses to manage the OSHIIT program.
Thus, another income stream will have to be diverted from the private sector to the insatiable vote-buying greed of both political parties.
I suspect that Obama is withholding approval of the XL pipeline to that all US Pipelines could be Nationalized to pay for OSHIT, RSHIT, or CSHIT.
It’ll go to pot until, at least, the vast majority of Obamacare gets whittled away. This was too much too soon even for a complacent people.
We now know the reason for the website going off line last evening.
Exactly. Many Americans will spend the rent money on Starbucks and Paradise Bakery. Did they really think they’d spend whatever extra money they have on useless health coverage that covers pretty much nothing?
