• Obamacare Is So Awesome That It Needs Another Delay

    Less than six days to go before the March 31 deadline, the White House extended the enrollment period for Obamacare. Apparently the health-care law, which just celebrated its 4th year, is so awesome that there are individuals who like a plan, but are unsure on whether or not they should press the “select” button.

    Quoth the Washington Post:

    Federal officials confirmed Tuesday evening that all consumers who have begun to apply for coverage on HealthCare.gov, but who do not finish by Monday, will have until about mid-April to ask for an extension.

    Or, in other words, as someone wisely remarked on Twitter:

    The New York Times put the number of Obamacare delays at 15 in the past year alone, and that was before the second employer mandate delay kicked in; it was also prior to this latest “extension” by the White House.  So the number unilateral delays — again, just within the last year — has clocked in at 17.

    This latest delay comes just weeks after Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said before a House Ways and Means committee that there would be no more delays to the individual mandate:

    We attempted to reach Congressman Luis Gutierrez of Illinois for comment, but he was still too busy singing to himself.
