Maybe this is the President's way of wooing Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan and getting her to agree to let him back onto the campaign trail with her.
If not, it smacks of that same level of desperation.
So, maybe this question will be a little easier: Is it ethical and legal for a President to unilaterally delay implementation of a law solely to help members of his political party win re-election?
Because that's what's happening.
The Hill reported:
The Obama administration is set to announce another major delay in implementing the Affordable Care Act, easing election pressure on Democrats.
As early as this week, according to two sources, the White House will announce a new directive allowing insurers to continue offering health plans that do not meet ObamaCare’s minimum coverage requirements.
Prolonging the “keep your plan” fix will avoid another wave of health policy cancellations otherwise expected this fall.
The cancellations would have created a firestorm for Democratic candidates in the last, crucial weeks before Election Day.
