That’s when the President… oh, let the Wall Street Journal have its scoop:
The White House on Thursday will announce a plan for allowing insurance companies to continue offering existing individual insurance policies even if they fall short of the coverage standards set by the 2010 health-care law, a Democratic official briefed on the plan said.
Anyway, the President is apparently under the impression that he can unilaterally order insurers to continue to offer soon-to-be-cancelled plans to people who are about to lose them, without legislation and without any side-effects. Or, more cynically: Barack Obama isn’t under that impression, but he really really needs Congressional Democrats to eat just one more sh*t sandwich on his behalf. Either way, it should be compelling TV.
