Obama now scrambling to fix his ‘fix’
Obama will just throw more and more money in his plan.
Check it out:
Just hours after President Obama proposed a fix to an incredibly unpopular provision of Obamacare – the one that caused five million people to lose their health-care plans – comes word that the White House is already considering fixing that “fix.”
Suddenly, the White House is considering making the president’s temporary fix last “beyond 2014.”
At a White House press conference Thursday, Obama announced he would let people keep their health-care plans that don’t meet Obamacare requirements. He also said people could re-enroll in plans they had lost that did not have Obamacare’s mandated benefits.
The fix was to last only for a year.
But, in a fact sheet outlining the details of that plan, the White House announced, “HHS (Health and Human Services) will consider the impact of this transitional policy in assessing whether to extend it beyond 2014.”
