Another Affordable Care Act delay to discuss today. The White House says it will give folks unable to enroll in health care plans through Healthcare.gov by the March 31st deadline extra time. Americans will now have until mid-April by checking a blue box on Healthcare.gov that says they tried to enroll before the deadline. White House officials say it will give consumers a break who may have had trouble with the government websites, and will help ease an expected last minute rush to enroll. Republicans say it's a blatantly political move to help shore-up Democrats running for reelection who've been hurt by the Affordable Care Act's unpopularity. The latest numbers suggest at least 6 million have signed up under the ACA but details remain fuzzy.
