[March 13, 2014] Earlier we wrote about the problems with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) and the problems its website was experiencing (link here) and the subsequent loss of trust and confidence in government due to multiple significant failures to get it right. This is a significant leadership issue that is not being fully and adequately addressed.
The original individual mandate requiring everyone to be in an insurance system with an approved health care plan by March this year continues to be extended; now to sometime in the year 2016. Regardless of the reason – bad website, bad law, bad compromise – the fact remains that the American citizenry is saying they don’t like the changing requirements, confusion, and the inevitable increasing in premiums that will result from the problems.
This new change will make the 14th time the White House has made a change to the mandate requirement and this one is the most likely to truly weaken the law. Are ACA mandates dissolving the law to a point of meaningless?
