    Default Obama's Individual Mandate Delayed Until 2016

    Is my old medical insurance plan now legal again?

    Since the modifications to ACA were kept under wraps, how does this benefit the democrats in the 2016 election?

    Does it really matter anymore anyway?

    "HHS is also trying to pre-empt the inevitable political blowback from the nasty 2015 tax surprise of fining the uninsured for being uninsured, which could help reopen ObamaCare if voters elect a Republican Senate this November."

    Purely political move to keep the Dem base happy. By extending the deadline to 2016, Dems avoid having to face angry young voters who are fined for not enrolling. For the typical low information voter, they won't even know that there is a fine for not enrolling.

    Your old plan is probably gone for good since there is no mention in the article about reversing the ACA's ban on sucky plans. I'm aware that Obama did give the insurance companies an extra year (or two?) via press conference, but it's unlikely insurance companies will make changes that they'll have to reverse in just two years.
