By JAVIER MANJARRESObama care’s woes continue as, the Obama administration has delayed another provision of the troubled healthcare law until 2015.
Aside from the other delayed provisions, including the business mandate that was delayed several weeks back, this new delay will give “one-year grace period to adhere to the limit, which otherwise would have capped individual costs at $6,350 a year and gone into effect in 2014. The change means some insurers could set higher limits or set no limit at all on out-of-pocket costs during that period. “
In other words, it limits out of pocket costs for two years.
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has just told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer that he does not expect the current Senate effort by defund Obama care in the upcoming budget talks to pass, but says that the hopes of actually defunding the healthcare law rests on the shoulders of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Paul added that once the Democratic-controlled Senate squashes efforts to defund Obama care, and the House votes in favor to defund it, then the next step would be the negotiating process between the two chambers of Congress, where he believes “a compromise” will be found that could further delay the implementation of the law, when the the Congress goes to the conference committee.As we speak, other Republican politicos and members of Congress are salivating at the opportunity to slam this latest delay, further fueling their “defund Obama care” efforts
Wait for it, wait for it….
“Faced with the obvious and predictable consequences of the caps, the administration again faces another embarrassing delay of this unworkable and unfair law…The president realizes the political consequences of allowing the insurance premiums of voters to skyrocket over the next twelve months and is choosing to lay the burden on the chronically ill and most vulnerable Americans. It is a desperate and shameful political move.-Senator Mike Lee (R-UT)
