Obama tries to rescue Democrats

In a blatant political move to rescue his namesake legislation to help out Democrats running this fall, Obama has changed it again (a violation of the law) so "you can keep your health plan" until after the election, to Oct. 2017, even if the plan isn't compliant. So for 2 years, 60 year old women won't have to pay for birth control or pediatric coverage. New big break for unions, too. Open enrollment will be extended and he's paying off the insurance companies, which must be pulling their hair out trying to figure out the rules. His plan is to make this so unpalatable, that people will beg for something even more expensive, but less confusing--single payer--and will blame the insurance companies for the chaos he has created.
