The Obama administration is delaying another piece of Obamacare – this time postponing online enrollment in some of the small-business exchanges scheduled to open Oct. 1, sources tell POLITICO.
Small businesses looking to enroll in coverage on so-called SHOP exchanges run by the federal government will be able to submit a paper application on Oct. 1 – they just won’t be able to enroll online.
Obamacare is such a huge law that there's bound to be some hiccups in the implementation. (There have been a bunch of postponements in the last year or so.) And it's better to postpone than to launch a half-assed site, but the teabaggers are sure going to have a good time with this news.
