“The Obama administration once again tried to sneak through a unilateral change to Obamacare which essentially allows anyone who has experienced a hardship in obtaining health insurance to opt out of the individual mandate tax without requiring documentation,” said House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Virginia Republican.

Also this month, the Obama administration let Americans extend their bare-bones health care plans through 2016, even if the policies do not comply with the law’s standards.

The move built on a one-year extension that the White House announced in November as it tried to quell a political backlash from Americans who received cancellation notices from their insurers.

However, the rule lets state insurance commissioners decide whether to allow the option, and policyholders must submit their cancellation notices with their hardship applications.
