Obamacare faces another obstacle
August 29 , 2013
The deadline for insurance companies to sign their agreements for the insurance exchanges has been delayed. This is another delay for ObamaCare but not a substantial one, according to a former administration official.
The cause of the delay hasn't been made clear but the exchanges are expected to roll out Oct. 1.
The former official of the administration questioned the assurance but said "having everything ready on October 1 is not a critical issue. What matters to people is January 1, which is when the coverage is supposed to start. If that were delayed, it would be a substantive setback."
