Personally I don’t think it will make much of a difference, but for what it’s worth the Obama administration has granted an extension until March 31 to sign up for health insurance without facing a penalty.
The previous deadline was mid-February.
WASHINGTON (AP) — With website woes ongoing, the Obama administration Monday granted a six-week extension until March 31 for Americans to sign up for coverage next year and avoid new tax penalties under the president’s health care overhaul law. [...]
Under the latest policy change, people who sign up by the end of open enrollment season on March 31 will not face a penalty. That means procrastinators get a grace period.
By the time this actually takes effect, “glitches” and other memes will have long since been forgotten.
In the mean time this should silence at least a handful of people who’ve set their hair on fire, right?
Who am I kidding?
