The Obama administration apparently has missed half its own deadlines for implementing the health care overhaul, according to a report that suggests the recent delay of a key insurance mandate is hardly an outlier.
The finding was included in a Congressional Research Service report, and first published in an article on Forbes.com.
The nonpartisan congressional research unit examined 82 deadlines that the Affordable Care Act imposed on the administration, and found the administration missed exactly half of them.
The White House, according to the June report, did not meet nine of 12 deadlines from the first year after ObamaCare was enacted. It failed to meet 22 of 53 deadlines in the second year. In the third year, the administration missed 10 out of 17 deadlines.
That’s a total of 41 out of 82 deadlines missed.
But of course nobody will get fired, nobody will go to jail. WARNING: These are trained professionals. Don’t try this at home.
