The rollout of healthcare.gov has been a complete disaster. Stories of the site malfunctioning are being reported everywhere. Regular Americans are having extreme difficulty signing up.
Liberals like Sen. Joe Manchin and entertainer Jon Stewart (Daily Show) think a delay of the individual mandate would be a good idea.
Some supporters of President Barack Obama are beginning to face increased costs for health care.
Health care companies are jettisoning Medicare doctors in droves. For instance, United Healthcare just canceled contracts with thousands of Medicare Advantage doctors. That means less supply of care.
Congress exempted itself from Obamacare. Obama delayed the mandate for big business. Why shouldn't the mandate be delayed for all Americans?
Delaying the individual mandate is the only fair option. It's a policy both liberals and conservatives should support.
