What I love about the Wall Street Journal is its well researched and well written articles.  On the opinion page today is a piece called "ObamaCare Delay Number 38."  I knew there had been delays.  I did not know there had been THIRTY-EIGHT delays!!  It starts out...
Amid one more last-minute regulatory delay, number 38 at last count, the mandate forcing nuns to sponsor birth control is more or less the only part of ObamaCare that is still intact.
 It seems that the deadline to buy insurance has been extended indefinitely, as long as the individual buying it deems the purchase a "hardship."  One is not required to prove the hardship.

Has the administration not argued repeatedly that the entire law would fall apart without the requirement that everyone have insurance?

And has not the administration repeatedly insisted that it would not extend the deadline for enrollment?

If individuals are not required to buy insurance, there is no reason to buy it until you're sick.  After all, you can't be denied insurance because of a pre-existing condition.  This system simply will not work.

Read the whole article and see what you think.  You can find it here.

It concludes:
This pattern of dishonesty and political improvisation has come to define ObamaCare, which is the law for some people, sometimes, except when it isn't.  Nothing HHS claims can be trusted, and little that the President of the United States promised about his signature law has turned out to be true.
Well. Those are tough words.  But I'm afraid they are absolutely true.
