Another day, and two more delays for Obamacare.

The Obama administration on Friday announced two significant extensions of deadlines for enrollment in health policies sold by government-run insurance exchanges including

One extension gives consumers eight extra days, to Dec. 23, to enroll in Obamacare plans that kick in Jan. 1, and gives them until Dec. 31 to actually start paying for those plans.

The other extension delays by one month, to next Nov. 15, the opening of enrollment for insurance beginning in 2015. That extension also will give consumers another week on the back end of that enrollment period, which now will close Jan. 15, instead of Dec. 7.
