The Patriot Post® · Delay It One More Time
In another Friday afternoon regulations news dump, the Obama administration delayed the individual mandate of ObamaCare again. First, the deadline to purchase insurance or face a fine was Feb. 15. That was pushed to March 31 via a “hardship exemption.” Then HHS said anybody who had even begun to enroll by March 31 would have indefinite time to complete that enrollment. Friday, HHS announced that anyone who had enrolled by May 1 would avoid the penalty, and they created three more “special enrollment” periods to let people in the gate. The administration isn’t even trying to hide the fact that ObamaCare is a huge election liability, and they’ll do anything to help their team win in November.
