(Washington, DC) -- The White House says it plans to push back the deadline requiring Americans to purchase health insurance as part of the Affordable Care Act. The Obama administration is looking to change the enrollment deadline for residents from February 15th. Currently, that's the day individuals have to at least begin the application process to avoid paying financial penalties. The White House is expected to push that deadline into March. The Obama administration has come under much criticism for the numerous glitches people around the country have found when trying to sign up for the individual mandate.
