Another Arbitrary Obamacare Change to Avoid “New Anger”

The Obama Administration wants to make yet another Obamacare change to exempt people from the penalties in the law.

How many times are they going to change this law in order to keep people from being upset at the law as it is actually written? As we have mentioned on this blog, millions of people are going to face penalties for not purchasing overpriced, junky, government-mandated insurance. So, once again, the White House is considering making a temporary change in the law to prevent people from experiencing the full force of what the Democrats have done to our health care. The New York Times reports, “

Obama administration officials and other supporters of the Affordable Care Act say they worry that the tax-filing season will generate new anger as uninsured consumers learn that they must pay tax penalties and as many people struggle with complex forms needed to justify tax credits they received in 2014 to pay for health insurance.

The White House has already granted some exemptions and is considering more to avoid a political firestorm.
