Michele Bachmann
Sigh.
Rep. Michele Bachmann says the latest delay in the implementation of Obamacare is just another example of “lawlessness” on the part of President Barack Obama.

“Unfortunately, it is the continuation of lawlessness from the administration,” Bachmann told Fox News’s Neil Cavuto on Wednesday. “The administration gets to have it any way they want to have it. All their promises about Obamacare, completely hypocritical. They didn’t come through, and now this? More of the same.”

That's about the delay that isn't really a delay, just a grace period for pending applications to be completed. And once again, we've got a Republican with reading comprehension problems.
For those wondering—in §1311 of the health law, the HHS Secretary is given the power to set dates for enrollment—so there is your legal underpinning for any date change.
Of course, that's assuming Bachmann ever bothered to read the law.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
