Lawmakers Want To Extend Health Care Deadline

(WLNS) – The official sign-up season for President Obama’s health care law may be over, but some congressional democrats say millions of Americans facing new tax penalties deserve a second chance.

Three senior house members say they plan to urge the administration to grant a special sign-up opportunity for un-insured taxpayers facing fines this year.

They say they’re concerned that constituents will find out about the penalties after it’s already too late for them to sign up for coverage since open enrollment ended Sunday.
