Despite promising ‘no delay’ in the final Obamacare sign-up deadline, the Obama administration has now unveiled a new ‘honor system’ extension that is set to end mid-April. I had a good laugh when I saw the words “honor system”, being used in any way, shape or form when it comes to Obama care, but play along..
The Washington Post is reporting that the extension past March 31 ‘will rely on an honor system,’ requiring users only to check a blue box on the federal government’s health insurance enrollment website to indicate that they made good-faith efforts to meet the original deadline.
‘The government will not try to determine whether the person is telling the truth,’ said WaPo.
It is extremely troubling that while we continue to watch the administration make changes and delay the full implementation of this mess, we still don’t know exactly how many people have signed up through the exchanges. So far, the White House has repeatedly declined to release that information, claiming the administration hasn’t collected those statistics.
This is nothing new as the White House has repeatedly lowered its expectations for Obamacare. From shifting target numbers, to stonewalling reporters who ask how many have actually paid for their coverage, this administration governs as it lives. And by that I mean there is no truth or ‘honor.’ It is all about expediency, political expedience and arrogance. They feel free to change anything on a whim because they have no sense of right and wrong.
Voter fraud? No problem. Whatever it takes to get into office. Broken campaign promises, such as being “the most transparent administration, the end of lobbyist influence, posting the bills online before they are voted on, etc.” No big deal. They were just a means to an end.
Now it’s Obamacare being shoved down our throats. There is no law that Obama feels he can’t change with his pen or phone. He mocks the Constitution, runs roughshod over the Congress, and ignores the judiciary. And this is all with the support of his party and the sycophants in the media who worship him as god.
Never has the definition of a slippery slope been more clear than during Obama’s reign. The shocker in all of this is that he is getting away with it.
