This is probably comes as a real relief to those who lost their policies and have already been forced to buy (or try to buy) more expensive policies through an Obamacare exchange:

The Obama administration Thursday night significantly relaxed the rules of the health-care law for millions of consumers whose individual insurance policies have been canceled, saying they could buy bare-bones health plans or entirely avoid the requirement that most Americans have health insurance.

The surprise announcement, four days before the Dec. 23 deadline for people to choose coverage that begins on Jan. 1, triggered an immediate backlash from the health insurance industry and raised new fairness questions about a law intended to promote affordable and comprehensive coverage.

Basically it sounds like the lie of the year has been revised to: “If you liked the plan you lost, you can keep that plan if you can still get it back.”

Good luck with that:

“This type of last-minute change will cause tremendous instability in the marketplace and lead to further confusion and disruption for consumers,” said Robert Zirkelbach, spokeman for American’s Health Insurance Plans, the industry’s main trade group.

It’s almost as if the Obama administration is unilaterally repealing the law without actually repealing the law. I must have missed the episode of Schoolhouse Rock where it said that’s constitutional.

Here’s the evolution of the legal aspects of the Affordable Care Act in 23 seconds:

And that’s how we ended up here.
