    Many consumers who buy their own health insurance could get a cancellation notice this fall because their current policies don't meet basic standards under President Barack Obama's health care law.

    you mean BO LIED when he said we could keep our current plans?

    A president shouldn't have this type of power. If a law is passed (even if its not read) it is enforced.

    This is an unprecedented power grab in American History and flies in the face of an American Republic.

    You are looking at this all wrong. This is a marvelous development. If the precedent can be established that the President can modify the implementation of Obamacare in whatever manner he wishes, then the next Republican President can simply suspend implementation completely as "too difficult" at this time. Democrats in Congress will then have no power to save it. It also displays democrats as so autocratic that maybe even the 47% will realize that their freedom is disappearing.

    As usual liberals with their blinded partisan ideology will see nothing sinister about Obama's move while those with clearer understanding will know exactly that this is an attempt by Obama to make his Obamacare irreversible. Note that now anyone can claim taxpayer subsidized healthcare insurance without having to demonstrate in any way eligibility! Millions of Americans can now force you and I to pay for their healthcare but the most intriguing part is that the more entitled Americans there are the better for Obama forcing its future. When was the last time ANY entitlement was repealed in America?

    Any partisan politicking about this is a farce. The Democrats and Republicans are well in charge of how to get re-elected. More or less of Obamacare is still the same, an unconstitutional grab for power and a nod to socialism. Anybody who doesn't support constitutional government doesn't understand, nor want, liberty.

    This move by Obama is simply political......Obamacare is such a disaster that he knew it would not survive the 2014 elections and that the democrats would have lost the senate and even more of the house had he not extended,the deadline.......low information voters who listen to Maddox, good morning america today show, cnn or salon or any other George Soros financed media will now lap dog Obama and his slaveocrats party in '14!
