Unbelievable is all that comes to mind when reading that three senior Democrats are “pleading” with Obama to once again unilaterally “bend the rules” on Obamacare so their voter base and millions of other Americans will not be hit with “Obamacare tax penalites.”
Reps. Sander Levin (D-MI), Jim McDermott (D-WA), and Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) have approached Obama with a strong request for a special enrollment period for “the uninsured who will all be hit with a $325 fine or two percent of their income (whichever is higher) for failure to enroll in 2015.” Next year, in 2016, that amount will soar to $1,100 on average.
In a statement issued by the “three musketeers,” they contended, “Open enrollment ended before many Americans filed their taxes. Without a special enrollment, many people (who will be paying fines) will not have another opportunity to get health coverage this year.”
