Obama Has Missed 44 Of 83 Obama-Care Deadlines

From the Washington Free Beacon:

Administration Has Missed More Than Half of Obamacare Deadlines

By Elizabeth Harrington | April 23, 2014

The administration has failed to meet 44 statutory deadlines required under Obamacare, according to a new report by the Congressional Research Service (CRS).

The report, released on Monday, documents every provision with a specific deadline within the health care law and the administration’s actions taken as of April 15, 2014. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has missed more than half of the 83 deadlines mandated since March 2011.

Mind you, this number does not include the deadlines that Obama has delayed via executive order and via the HHS diktats.

The missed deadlines range from several days to years. The administration was only four days late in issuing a final regulation for HIPAA electronic transactions, while it was two years and seven months past the deadline for a report on domestic violence victims on Indian reservations.

The secretary was one year and one month late in developing a plan to increase HHS’s Indian Health Service (IHS) by 500 positions… Several reports that were late related to Native American health…

Native Americans are suffering? Where is the outrage?

The report details many lesser known provisions within Obamacare, including a required three year “Independence at Home demonstration” to test if “home-based care” can reduce hospital visits…

The CRS said that due to the law’s “complexity” it had to exclude numerous other provisions of Obamacare, which only have “effective dates” and not hard deadlines…

So the Obama administration has undoubtedly missed even more deadlines than the 44 reported here.
