This final note today, in which Obamacare -- wait for it -- takes it on the chin again. The Obama Administration announced this afternoon it's going to delay the deadline for people to sign up for insurance coverage that would start on New Year's Day.

It's not a big slip, though, just eight days. The deadline has moved from December 15th to the 23rd.

 

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
