WH (Sort of) Open to O’care Delay
Carney suggests law allows for delay.
Remember just before the partial shutdown when Republicans offered to pass a continuing resolution if Democrats would concede to delay all of ObamaCare? At the time, the Left cried foul; a fiery Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid even blasted Republicans for having “lost their minds” by entertaining such a thought. Of course, that was then. Now that the shutdown is over, and given the troubles surrounding Healthcare.gov is making enrollment near impossible, they’re evidently experiencing a change of heart. Press Secretary Jay Carney this week said, “The law is clear that if you do not have access to affordable health insurance then you will not be asked to pay a penalty because you haven’t purchased affordable health insurance.” The same law that Obama was willing to unilaterally delay for employers, but not individuals – perhaps until it’s convenient to do so. Once again, Obama’s showing flexibility.
