White House delays deadline to sign up for insurance exchanges

U.S. President Barack Obama speaks about Affordable Care Act at The Fairmont Hotel on June 7, 2013 in San Jose, Calif.

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.
