New Obamacare delay to help midterm Democrats

New Obamacare delay to help midterm Democrats

The Obama administration is set to announce another major delay in implementing the Affordable Care Act, easing election pressure on Democrats.

 As early as this week, according to two sources, the White House will announce a new directive allowing insurers to continue offering health plans that do not meet ObamaCare’s minimum coverage requirements.

Prolonging the “keep your plan” fix will avoid another wave of health policy cancellations otherwise expected this fall.

 The cancellations would have created a firestorm for Democratic candidates in the last, crucial weeks before Election Day.
