Sure, the President has quietly issued executive order after executive order delaying parts of Obamacare...the most recent being this week, when small business owners were granted a one-year delay on bumping employees off in-house health plans. But none of this will do any good, because the President still hasn’t picked up Insurance For Dummies, although doubtless there are several copies on the Oval Office desk. The President can grant delays all he wants—the problem is that the healthcare carriers were not given a delay about a year ago, and have already terminated or started to terminate their old policies. Sorry: insurance isn&3146;t like issuing a library card where you can always roll back to the old way of doing it. Every type of policy has a prospectus written, for which the financial risks are calculated and a profit model demonstrated. This takes about a year to execute, so if the President really wanted to delay things another year, he should have issued his orders back in 2011 or 2012. Because he didn’t, it’s way too late: millions of cancellation letters will be going out throughout the Summer and Fall of 2014, pissing off untold numbers of voters.It's not just hard to sell insurance, it's hard to make the policies so that they're legal. The only thing I'd add is that the State Insurance Commissions have to sign off on the policies before they go into effect. Next summer will see perhaps 100 Million voters realizing that Obamacare has caused their insurance to be cancelled. Because of the way that Obamacare was structured ("spread the wealth around"), their new policies will be more expensive, have higher deductables, higher annual out-of-pocket caps, and smaller doctor networks.
And there just two things that the Democrats can do about it: Jack and s**t. And it looks like Jack just left town.
Smartest guys in the room, right there.
