The Latest Delay Explained

Sebelius and Reid in spin mode.

The White House is in full spin mode over its latest delay of the March 31 deadline for enrollment in ObamaCare. “This is not an extension of open enrollment,” insisted HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. “It’s actually a very logical way to make sure people get through the system.” Logical because it benefits Democrats to have as many people enrolled as they can squeeze through the turnstiles. Meanwhile, Harry Reid says the problem of low enrollment is because “people are not educated on how to use the Internet.” Saying the extension – or whatever it’s called – is needed, he recounted how a 63-year-old woman came close but lamented, “Every time I just about got there, it would cut me off.” But ObamaCare isn’t suffering from a lack of 63-year-old women signing up; it’s the young and healthy who aren’t answering the call. And in the age of quick social media sites, the broken and plodding Healthcare.gov is a problem.
