The political realities of Obamacare are beginning to be more fully understood by the party that brought America one of the most divisive, industry-destroying laws in the nation’s history.
Once again, in another act of judicial defiance, say critics, President Obama has authorized new delays in key aspects of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. According to a blog post at The Hill online, Congress’ daily newspaper of record, the delay in required coverage minimums mandated by the law is a naked political calculation to assist vulnerable Democrats facing reelection in November:
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.
