From Delay-Is-Not-An-Option Sebelius: No More Delays of ObamaCare

Recently, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said she didn't anticipate any further delays of ObamaCare.  Of course, this is this same Sebelius that said "delay is not an option"; even though, as of now, there have been at least 30 such delays of a variety of major mandates of the healthcare law.

This time though, she might be actually telling the truth; as hard as that may be to swallow.  That's because all the "most" damaging parts of the law have been shelved until after the elections.  Some even past the 2016 elections. So, what's left? Hardly anything.  My guess is that Obama and the Democrats will be content with people "voluntarily" and, I suppose, happily signing up for exchange-based insurance through the balance of this year.  This way, the angry and "vocal" and forced signups will be silenced and the Dems will just skate through the elections unharmed.  Anyway, that appears to be Sebelius and Obama's plan.

What Republicans need to do is keep reminding the voters that "delay" is not a "fix" for what is an extremely bad and damaging law.  The turmoil and anger that was seen last Fall is still waiting to rear its ugly head again in 2015, 2016, and 2017.  There isn't enough lipstick in the world to make this pig look good
