Obamacare penalties may be delayed
Official says effective deadline to have insurance could be postponed
Stories You Might Like

By Jen Wieczner

The Obama administration will delay enforcement of the Affordable Care Act’s health insurance mandate, extending how long Americans may go uninsured before facing a penalty under the law, MarketWatch has learned.

The health care law requires most people to have health insurance by Jan. 1, 2014 or face a penalty, but the Administration may postpone when those penalties will go into effect. The law allows for “short coverage gaps” of up to three months before imposing the penalty, which is $95 or 1% of an individual’s income (whichever is greater) next year. Under the current rules, someone would have to be covered by March 31, an official with the Department of Health and Human Services confirmed, which is the final day that people will be able to purchase health insurance on the public exchanges, or marketplaces, created by the ACA.

Now they want to do it Ted Cruz Way.

White House: Durbin's story about insult isn't true
WASHINGTON — The White House on Wednesday disputed Sen. Dick Durbin's assertion that a House Republican leader insulted President Barack Obama while negotiating with the president over the partial government shutdown.
But Durbin, an Illinoisan who is a friend and ally of the president, stood by his story, according to numerous media reports.
In a Facebook post Sunday that remained up Wednesday night, Durbin wrote:
"Many Republicans searching for something to say in defense of the disastrous shutdown strategy will say President Obama just doesn't try hard enough to communicate with Republicans. But in a 'negotiation' meeting with the president, one GOP House Leader told the president:'I cannot even stand to look at you.'"
Obama spokesman Jay Carney, speaking Wednesday to reporters, said he looked into Durbin's account and spoke to somebody who was at the meeting, and "it did not happen."
A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner called on Durbin to immediately retract the "reckless allegation" and apologize. The spokesman, Brendan Buck, said Durbin's accusation was "serious … and it appears to have been invented out of thin air." Buck also called for Durbin to disclose who gave him that account from the meeting.
At the National Republican Senatorial Committee, spokeswoman Brook Hougesen's comments mirrored Buck's. "Senator Durbin, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, is at the crux of the partisan divide in Washington," she said. "How can voters trust anything this man says? Durbin should either reveal his 'source' or retract his partisan attack immediately and apologize. His credibility is waning."
Durbin's office did not respond to the Tribune's questions, but various media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal and Politico, quoted Durbin spokesman Max Gleischman as saying that Durbin stands by his comments.
Durbin, 68, who is No. 2 in the Senate Democratic leadership, is up for re-election next year.
Illinois' senior senator got in hot water eight years ago over remarks for which he later apologized. In a speech on the Senate floor, Durbin compared the U.S. treatment of Guantanamo Bay terrorism suspects to something "done by Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime — Pol Pot or others — that had no concern for human beings."
The remarks drew condemnation from many quarters and even a call for his censure.
Hat tip: Chicago Tribune.
*Liberal Durbin (D-Walgreens) as he is called in Illinois--will say anything--I mean anything...never once does what he say have to be true. It is the liberal thug Chicago way.
Dickhead Durbin reminds me so much of Chuck-up Schoomer. Every time one of those two open their mouths, another defective used car gets sold to a sucker.

hile the Affordable Care Act was making its way through Congress in 2009 and 2010, President Obama famously promised the American people over and over again that if you like your health plan, you can keep it.

“Let me be exactly clear about what health care reform means to you,” Obama said at one rally in July 2009.“First of all, if you’ve got health insurance, you like your doctors, you like your plan, you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan. Nobody is talking about taking that away from you.”

But the president's promise is turning out to be false for millions of Americans who have had their health insurance policies canceled because they don't meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act.
