Democrats running away from the ACA in droves?
"The Obama administration obviously understands that. There is no other explanation than political expediency for its announcement last week that it is extending the "keep your plan" fix until 2016 for Americans who have coverage that doesn't meet Obamacare's minimum standards."
The question in my mind.... will the President's unilateral changes to the law have any effect at all? He can do and say whatever he pleases, but insurance companies are NOT extending any old plans. They LIKE the new ones required by the law, as shown by the nearly *doubled* profits of the major insurers since the passing of the ACA. Add to that the clear illegality of the Presidents executive orders, and insurance companies have no reason to play along. What remains to be seen is how this will effect voting in upcoming election cycles.
