The Obama administration has conveniently decided to re-open the ObamaCare enrollment period for those Americans who are hoping to avoid bigger fines next year for being without health insurance. The administration is ultimately capitalizing on the fact that many people were surprised to learn as they did their taxes this year that they were being fined for not having coverage in 2014. At the same time a new special enrollment period has been announced, the Obama administration also admits that 800,000 Healthcare.gov customers have received incorrect tax forms.
The deadline for enrolling in ObamaCare exchange coverage was extended a week, and congressional Democrats want another enrollment period in April for those who were fined for being uninsured last year.
Over the last decade in the United States, the deaths of over 100 children — at the very least — have been linked to receiving a measles vaccine, compared with zero children dying from the disease itself, according to the U.S. government’s own compiled data. Put another way, an American child would have been infinitely more likely to die after receiving a measles shot, percentage-wise, than from getting the actual measles in the last 10 years. Thousands have suffered from adverse reactions. The explosive numbers have massive implications for public health efforts, analysts said.
