Yet Another Delay

“Surge in demand.”

Today ends in “y,” and that means it’s time for another delay of a politically inconvenient ObamaCare mandate or deadline. This time it’s the March 31 deadline for enrollment. HHS declared that people who started to enroll but haven’t completed doing so now have until mid-April to finish. And it’s on the honor system – all people have to do is check a box on Healthcare.gov pledging that they’ve tried to enroll. HHS explained that the delay is needed because of a “surge in demand,” even though way back on March 11 HHS explained, “We have no plans to extend the open enrollment period. In fact, we don’t actually have the statutory authority to extend the open enrollment period in 2014.” So much for that. The bottom line is Obama knows he can take whatever measures he wants because any objection from Republicans will look like they’re against easing the pain of ObamaCare.
