Another day, another delay for the Affordable Care Act

Certified Enrollment Specialist, Yanelis Diaz, waits on the HealthCare.gov website that reads, 'HealthCare.gov has a lot of visitors right now!' as she helps people through the options available to them under the Affordable Care Act at a Miami Enrollment Assistance Center on December 23, 2013 in Miami, Florida. 

Another day, another delay for the Affordable Care Act.

The White House announced today that it's going to give medium size companies -- places that have between 50 and 99 workers -- an extra year before they have to offer health insurance to full-time workers. 

Bigger companies -- with 100 or more people -- also got a break on how quickly they need to provide coverage for their workers.

Basically: Just about everyone gets a little longer to figure this all out.
