The 2014 box canyon

Tom Maguire notes that the Obama administration pushed back the health insurance enrollment requirement in 2015 until after the election to avoid headlines over sticker shock.  But the real problem for Obamacare is that - by law - insurers must give policy holders 90-days notice that they're losing their coverage.  That means a little more than a month before the 2014 elections, millions of Americans will be getting cancellation notices.
Obviously, the next step would be for Obama to waive the 90 day notice requirement, but the legality of that would be laughable.
Don't sell Obama short!  Maybe it's time for some more "enforcement discretion" that's all the rage nowadays.
