ObamaCare Clusterfuck: “Keep your plan” fix to be prolonged until after the midterms

The Hill:

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.

So my question is this:

How about the marks consumers citizens who actually believed Obama would enforce the law, ditched the policies they liked, and bought ObamaCare because, under the mandate, they had to? Do they get a do-over? (Who am I kidding, right?)

What's interesting is that throughout this process Obama's incentivized people to wait 'til the last possible moment to do anything. Seriously, why spend a dime -- especially on a crappy product -- if you're not absolutely, 100% certain that Obama won't push a deadline back, or change the rules?

I expect the "employer mandate" to be completely done away with, after the midterms!

They are simply afraid of a serious "backlash" from the Democratic Party Base right before November, or they would have already rescinded this portion of the ACA (IMHO).
