Our friend, the compassionate man who leads us with love and kindness has decided we need a 6 week delay to get healthcare. Lo an behold this decision has nay to do with the sign up process, because God forbid our leader make a concession. The reason is as follows “Under the law, health plans available through the new federal or state marketplaces will start Jan. 1, but the open enrollment period runs through the end of March. The law also says that people will be fined only if they do not have coverage for three months in a row. The question has been this: Do people need to be covered by March 31, or merely to have signed up by then, given that insurance policies have a brief lag before they take effect?”
This seems like another attempt at our leadership to kick the can down the road, and not actually do anything of substance.
