As a key deadline approaches for the federal health-care law, organizations statewide are working to reach thousands of Oklahomans who remain uninsured.

March 31 is the last day for open enrollment in plans offered under the Affordable Care Act.

    People who haven't enrolled in the medical plan won't have to pay a penalty. The administration will continue to kick the can down the road. They're not going to give the Republicans any ammunition leading up to the mid-term election.

    I wouldn't look for any penalty to ever be enforced; Anyway, not until after the 2016 elections have been determined. And depending on what party is elected not even then.

    If its a Republican administration the Affordable Healthcare Act will be repealed. And replaced with extended Medicaid.. States that have refused to sign on to the new Medicare will except it after AHA disappears.

    A big THANK YOU to these and other private agencies that are educating our citizens about the ACA and helping them sign up.

    Your State government would prefer that you remain uninsured. Certain politicians would rather eat worms than co-operate with the hated program known as Obamacare.
