April Fools! After Explaining They Lacked Authority to Expand Obamacare's Sign-up Deadline; Obama Admin Says Just Kiddin' We Can Do Whatever We Want

It is hard to take this stuff seriously anymore. I really wish this story were from the Onion.  But it's not ... this is from David Martosko at the Daily Mail    

  • The Health and Human Services Department is allowing Americans who use to blow off the March 31 enrollment deadline
  • Republicans of all stripes are reacting with contempt, saying the president and his staff are breaking the law and defying Congress
  • Just check a box and say you tried to sign up for Obamacare before March 31, and the system will give you a few more weeks
  • The Obama administration has pulled out all the stops to boost its numbers before the six-month open enrollment period ends
  • The White House has repeatedly lowered expectations by shifting its target numbers – and by delaying talking about how many have paid for coverage
