Team Obama May Announce New Obamacare Delay


And it’s all about attempting to protect Democrats for the mid-terms

New ObamaCare delay to help Democrats in midterm elections

The Obama administration is set to announce another major delay in implementing the Affordable Care Act, easing election pressure on Democrats.

As early as this week, according to two sources, the White House will announce a new directive allowing insurers to continue offering health plans that do not meet ObamaCare’s minimum coverage requirements.

Prolonging the “keep your plan” fix will avoid another wave of health policy cancellations otherwise expected this fall.

The cancellations would have created a firestorm for Democratic candidates in the last, crucial weeks before Election Day.

The White House is intent on protecting its allies in the Senate, where Democrats face a battle to keep control of the chamber.

For Republicans, this is a gift either way. Without the delay, provided it is announced, there will be more cancellation notices going out right around election time. With a delay, they can argue that Obamacare creates lots of pain for consumers. Either way, they can point out that Obama lied about keeping your insurance. Also, keeping your doctor. Also, a family saving $2500 a year. Also, that it will reduce the deficit. That it will be revenue neutral. If they’re smart (not always a sure thing with the Establishment GOP), they will simply focus on the easy to understand lies, and note if Obama and the Democrats lied about those and other parts of Obamacare, what else might they lie about?

We were told that Obamacare was supposed to be super awesome, that it would really help Americans. If so, then why does Team Obama continues to initiate delay after delay? Weren’t Dems and Obama upset over the Shutdown, which was about delaying Obamacare? Obama and the Dems want to slow the train wreck and hope no-one notices during the mid-terms. Unfortunately, there are enough low information voters and hyper-partisan fools on the left that they may partially succeed. Though, probably not enough to save the Senate Dems in vulnerable seats, handing the Senate to the GOP.
