Repeal and replace

Cracks beginning to appear? HHS head says Obamacare sign up deadline cannot be moved. Enrollment deadline still March 31

http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/hhs-we-lack-statutory-authority-extend-obamacares-open-enrollment-period_784621.html

On a conference call with reporters Tuesday afternoon, officials at the Department of Health and Human Services insisted that March 31 is the firm deadline to sign up for Obamacare. “We have no plans to extend the open enrollment period,” HHS official Julie Bataille said. “In fact, we don’t actually have the statutory authority to extend the open enrollment period in 2014.”

What’s up with that? Did someone decide to flout the authority of the dear leader and remind him that the law is the law? Did someone finally grow a pair of balls and decide to resist? Maybe;  I guess we will see if this is getting set up for a court battle. (Think classic Batman narration) Find out on the next episode.

This is what happens when you attempt to force people to buy a product.

“The midlevel scenario for November was 20,186 members, and the highest projection 30,944 members.

As federal startup grants taper off under Obamacare funding, the exchange is meant to pay for itself with per-member charges on the private insurance companies offering policies. It needs 136,300 enrollees in 2014 to raise $6.5 million of its $51.4 million expenses.”

Fuck you and your fine.
