This administration's handling of ObamaCare has become a joke. Obama has made yet another change to the rollout of the law. This time he has decided to push back the next enrollment date into the ObamaCare exchanges by one month. Why one month? Because that conveniently places the new enrollment period AFTER the 2014 mid-term elections.
The next enrollment period was set to begin October 15, 2014. That date will now be November 15, just days after the mid-term elections. The move could not be more transparent. It's clear that Democrats are rightfully concerned that ObamaCare will be nothing more than an albatross around their necks in the next election. Anything that can be done to minimize the stories related to ObamaCare will only work in their favor.
