The New York Times called the announcement "vague" and noted that "it was not clear on Tuesday how many people would be affected, or how consumers would prove that website errors had prevented them from signing up by the deadline on Tuesday night."

The Obama administration announcement also failed to note when the "special enrollment period" would cease; however, White House spokesperson Tara McGuinness assured Americans it is not offering a "blanket extension" but will consider "assistance to individuals on a case-by-case basis."

Insurance industry experts say the White House's endless rounds of delays and shifting deadlines create more confusion and uncertainty in an already murky market.

"The goal posts keep moving," insurance lawyer William G. Schiffbauer told the Times. "That raises questions about whether insurers can collect premiums in a timely manner to pay claims from doctors and hospitals."

Legal experts have questioned the constitutionality of the Obama administration's "on the fly" changes, delays, modifications, and extensions to settled law. The Times conceded that "taken together, they amount to a sweeping exercise of executive power."

George Washington University Law School Professor Jonathan Turley said the Obama administration has engaged in a "pattern of circumnavigating Congress in the creation of new major standards, exceptions or outright nullifications."

A new CNN poll finds that Obamacare's approval rating has now hit an all-time low of just 35%.

Can anyone imagine how the Old Gray Whore would have reacted if it had been GWB - or even Romney - making all these executive changes, even to this precise same law?  They'd be calling for resistance and open rebellion.

Can you imagine how loud the howls of outrage will be at 12.01 PM, January 20th 2017, when the first native-born President since Obama undoes 90% of the Obama Regime with the stroke of a pen that cancels every single Executive Order Obama ever signed??

One can only hope said person has the cojones necessary to do so.  To-date republicans don't seem to have very large ones.

There is one but she wouldn't.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
