A couple of U.S. Senators want to delay the penalty facing Americans who don't sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. Illinois Republican Mark Kirk and West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin introduced the bill that would push back the individual mandate penalty by one year.
The rollout of the new healthcare law has been plagued by glitches making it difficult for people to enroll at the Healthcare.gov website. Under the current law, those who have no health insurance by March 31st of 2014 would be hit with a penalty of 95-dollars or one percent of their family income.
