WASHINGTON (AP) - President Obama is set to make remarks today on a solution to some policies of the Affordable Care Act, according to CNN.

The fix will be "administrative," calling for renewals of health insurance for existing policy holders who received cancellation notices.

The White House had reportedly been given a defacto deadline for Friday to find a solution to the problems surrounding the website and the Affordable Care Act.

Not a lot of details as of yet, but CNN is reporting this as breaking news. Looks like the President will speaking at 11:30 AM EST.

EDIT:

I believe there is a vote tomorrow on Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu's bill to do basically the same thing--postpone the coverage requirements for plans and require insurance companies to provide details explaining why the plans don't meet requirements.

Honestly, I'm not sure how this can even be pulled off legally or logistically for that matter.

I can't wait to see the BS that Obama is going to spout off. He can't do anything about cancelled insurance policies. He hasn't the authority.

So does that mean people won't be forced to have pregnancy coverage and gender change operations included in their coverage? Or is it another delay tactic.

You know it's funny. Republicans and other conservative minded people have been yelling about things like this for years, and the Democrats just sat there REFUSING to budge on changing anything. Then a month and a half after the law goes live, all sorts of backlash hits (like was forewarned) and as soon as a few Democrats start getting scared for their reelection bids, these guys start jumping through hoops to make changes. Well at this point it is most likely all too late. What is to prevent the insurance companies, after being mandated to reprovide all the insurance coverages that they canceled, from raising the rates on these reinstated policies? Naturally, no one will mention this and Obama will be able to go back to saying if you like your insurance you can keep it, just at a higher rate.

Just LOVE how they work the wording on these things. Rereading carefully it says nothing has changed yet, but he wants it to. So my guess is he is going to do what he does best, take to the tv and teleprompters making his will be known. Talking in circles making it sound pretty without any details stating a fix is actually going to happen.

All they have to do is delay the "Minimum Essential Coverage" parts of the law.

But I think it would have to come as an amendment to the law.

Or, they can change the HHS regulations that define "Grandfathered" policies.

Very tricky.

And of course, people can still buy "New" fully loaded policies.

But Obama will BeeEss his way through it somehow.

Real heath care change, I mean REAL change should be an Ala-carte approach. A "base insurance" plan is made available, upon which you elect to add more coverage based upon your needs. Additional coverage for transgender issues would be chosen on an individual basis based upon need. Or, like cable and cars, a set of "feature plans" is made available that bundle the most logical groupings of additional policy enhancements, such as:

- The "Fast and Furious" plan covers young adults from 18-30, that has small co-pays and large deductibles for catastrophic coverage, baby related items.

- The "30-Something" plan covers people from 30-50, has large co-pays, and medium deductibles for more advanced health issues and early screenings of cancer and other long-term issues and dental.

- The "Elder" plan covers people from 50-70, has medium co-pays, and smaller deductibles for plans covering more longer-term issues (cancer, etc...), dental, and early screenings for diseases more prevalent in the aging body.

The people above this age group would be covered by Medicare/Medicaid during their retirement and aging years.

Just my thoughts.

Is this guy the President or a dictator?

The President cant just change things as he goes along.

The Congress writes the rules and regulations, the POTUS just signs it into law...

Am I missing something?

Mr Teleprompter can call for the policies to be reinstated....

He can call for gasoline prices to drop too.

It doesn't mean it will happen. Unless our government is even more fascist than I realized.

Exactly! What does his Lord and Master plan on doing about Insurance Companies that have not only had to cancel policies to meet new ACA law requirements...but...have completely pulled out of whole States?

Is he going to wave his magic Emperor wand, and make them all come back to those States.....

What a joke....methinks his dunce cap is showing....he still thinks it's his crown...but, we can see it isn't.

This is so irritating. Shoot, is he even going to show? Was supposed to be there over 10 min ago.

Someone explain how this is all working anyhow. Now to make things happen all we need is for Obama to say so?? Are we already at government healthcare or does he just tell businesses what to do now and so be it?? He is only supposed to be they guy who signs into law what congress gives him.

Is he going to follow this up with a big apology to the republicans and tea party folks who tried to stop this train wreck to begin with?

And how are we supposed to believe a word that comes out of that mouth of his anyway?

Is he seriously starting this off by making himself sound like the hero to the Philippines?? How about the areas in our own country hit by natural disasters that the government let down?

CNN: President will delay expiration notices for 1 year


I'm pretty sure it's illegal for him to do that.
It's a SCOTUS passed law and I don't think the POTUS can mess with it.
(not that Obama has ever concerned himself with the following the law or ethics .... )

Or did I get that wrong??? He can't do it, right???
I can't follow this crap anymore ... it's too dang complicated and convoluted.

I wish there was one reporter in that room who had the cajones to stand up and yell...great, you want to help and rescue people in the Philippines...now, let's talk about why you didn't do the same for Americans in Benghazi....

His mere voice grates on my Soul.....

0bama is the biggest assclown to ever come to office.

And how people still follow him is so far behind me, it might as well be a martian speaking to a stick in chinese.

And when the "You can keep your doctor, PERIOD" is proven a lie, will he call out the military to force the doctors at gunpoint?
