Congressional Research Service: Obamacare Has Already Missed Half Its Deadlines (Update: Chicago Trib Rips Obamacare)
” Over the weekend, President Obama accused Republicans of trying to “gum up the works” in implementing Obamacare. Well, the works do be gummed up all on their own according to Avik Roy. The Congressional Research Service says — in an unpublished report — that the Obama government has already missed half its implementation deadlines.
As of May 31, 2013, when the CRS analysis was completed, the White House had yet to meet 9 of 12 deadlines from the first year after the Affordable Care Act was enacted. It failed to meet 22 of 53 deadlines in the second year; another 8 became moot after Congress did not appropriate funds to complete the assigned tasks. In year three, the administration missed 10 out of 17 deadlines. That’s a total of 41 out of 82 deadlines missed.”
