Warding off the specter of election-year health insurance cancellations, the Obama administration Wednesday announced a two-year extension for individual policies that don't meet requirements of the new health care law.
The decision helps defuse a political problem for Democrats in tough re-election battles this fall, especially for senators who in 2010 stood with President Barack Obama and voted to pass his health overhaul.
The extension was part of a major package of regulations that sets ground rules for 2015, the second year of government-subsidized health insurance markets under Obama's law — and the first year that larger employers will face a requirement to provide coverage.

The law is clear about those minimum standards and apparently somewhere in the law it must say that the Administration can delay without Congress amending the law.
I hate to say it but it seems too late, many (most? all?) of those plans have already been canceled. Re-instating them seems like a lot of work for the insurance companies when they can just say they would rather be PPACA compliant and save themselves the extra work.
This would have done a lot of good a few months ago...

But until they actually move violently against the people or the states, I think the violent revolt you seem to want isn't going to happen.
Don't make the mistake of thinking the people don't care, rather they trust that this will be rectified through the system.
