With Christmas just around the corner, and Barry in Hawaii catching some sleep and sun and reminiscing about the halcyon days when alls he had to do was hustle rich guys on the sands of Waikiki, the good folks at the White House want you to share in the holiday cheer.
You can all have an extra day to sign up for ObamaCare!
The clock to sign up for Obamacare coverage that begins January 1 was supposed to run out at midnight on Monday, but administration officials have extended it 24 hours, through Christmas eve, according to the Washington Post. The Post reports that they did so without any public announcement of the change:
Over the weekend, government officials and outside IT contractors working on the online marketplace’s computer system made a software change that automatically gives people a Jan. 1 start date for their new coverage as long as they enroll by 11:59 p.m. on Christmas Eve.
Sources told the Post that the 24-hour extension has been built into the online system and is intended as a precaution in the event that the problem-plagued website sees a surge of traffic from individuals looking to sign up at the last minute, and buckles under the weight.
The extension, said the sources, cannot be overridden by insurance companies if they object to it. It is the latest of several last-minute, ad hoc rule changes issued by the administration, including last week’s announcement that individuals whose insurance plans were canceled may receive an exemption from the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate.

Yey! C’mon everybody, let’s hear it! Yey!
I know it feels like you are getting an extra day to slit your wrists, but think of the poor kids in China Detroit who don’t have anything but a welfare check and an Obamaphone… and a laptop… and a gigantic wide screen TV…
Maybe you are one of the lucky
rich upper, upper middle-class Americans who makes $34 thou a year and change, with three kids and a car payment and a mortgage and a doctor you liked. Alls this means is now you’ll have to be like everybody else… is. all. it. means.
Count your blessings, you ungrateful tea party terrorists!
