From TheDailyCaller.com: "President Barack Obama has decided to save his endangered Obamacare law by suspending for one year enforcement of the law’s critical but unpopular elimination of roughly 15 million low-cost insurance plans held by Americans who buy insurance on their own."

(Read more: http://dailycaller.com/2013/11/14/obama-retreats-on-obamacare-allows-existing-low-cost-policies-to-continue/#ixzz2kjYWLHu2)

Response from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas' e-newsletter, News from the Blues for Employers:

President Obama announced Nov. 14 that some individual policy members and small groups (2-50) may be allowed to remain with their current 2013 policy for an additional year. We are reviewing today's announcement and will determine next steps as we keep our members informed of their options both on and off the exchange. This may change the Affordable Care Act’s requirement that all non-grandfathered health plans must be compliant with certain benefit changes in 2014.

We will continue to work with federal and state agencies on how this approach will be implemented and will comply with any new requirements. Our primary goal remains maintaining access to quality, affordable health care for our members. We will continue to support solutions that ensure there are no disruptions in health insurance for our existing members. We will soon reach out to consumers who may have new options as a result of this announcement.

Isn't this amazing. This mess is postponed until right after next year's election. Just a coincidence I suppose.
