(Newser) Another ObamaCare delay. This time, the date insurance companies will sign their final agreements for the insurance exchanges has been pushed back from early to mid-September, industry sources tell Reuters. What caused the delays isn't clear, but a spokeswoman for the Department of Health and Human Services says it expects the exchanges will still be ready to roll out October 1. A former Obama administration official questioned that assurance, but added " having everything ready on October 1 is not a critical issue. What matters to people is January 1, which is when the coverage is supposed to start. If that were delayed, it would be a substantive setback."

First of all it is not a health care bill. It is about new taxes. If you think I am wrong. What does the IRS have to do with health care. They will be running to program.

Maybe if the lazy bas#@&ds in congress would have read this piece of crap bill, they never would have approved it.
