Default On ObamaCare and Waivers

On Friday, the Department of Health and Human Services quietly posted newly accepted waivers to 221 businesses and two entire states exempting them from damaging provisions of ObamaCare, bringing the grand waiver total to seven entire states and 1,372 businesses.

Despite union workers only making up 11.9% of the workforce, 45.55% of waiver beneficiaries are unionized. If the law’s supporters are requesting and receiving waivers, shouldn't the law’s opponents should be guaranteed waiver?

Of the 204 new Obamacare waivers President Barack Obama’s administration approved in April, 38 are for fancy eateries, hip nightclubs and decadent hotels in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s Northern California district.

That’s in addition to the 27 new waivers for health care or drug companies and the 31 new union waivers Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services approved.

Pelosi’s district secured almost 20 percent of the latest issuance of waivers nationwide, and the companies that won them didn’t have much in common with companies throughout the rest of the country that have received Obamacare waivers.

Other common waiver recipients were labor union chapters, large corporations, financial firms and local governments. But Pelosi’s district’s waivers are the first major examples of luxurious, gourmet restaurants and hotels getting a year-long pass from Obamacare.

If we need to give people waivers in order to enact a law, why was it made law in the first place?

or better put: what's the point of a law that select people/businesses are just getting waviors for?


That's like saying, everyone has to follow the 13th admendement, unless they get a waivor, then they can still own slaves.

More:

The Health and Human Services Department announced late Friday that Nevada had secured a statewide waiver from certain implementation requirements of the Obama administration's health care law, because forcing them through, the department found, "may lead to the destabilization of the individual market."

...

Nevada's Insurance Division had appealed to the feds to reduce the federal requirement that health plans serving people who buy insurance on their own must spend at least 80 percent of the money they collect on medical expenses. Under the national rule, companies that don't spend that percentage of revenue on medical costs have to cut policyholders rebate checks starting this year.



I thought Harry Ried and Polesi championed this law, why is it that their states are rejecting it and getting favors?

American stands for freedom, so if you think your free, try walking into a deli and urinating on the cheese.

Slaves? Man, I don't want any slaves. I already feed, clothe, and provide housing to people. Don't make me have to supervise them all day, too. You ask too much.

Watch this:




Then read this:

This year’s report from PwC’s Health Research Institute finds that the medical cost trend is expected to increase from 8% in 2011 to 8.5% in 2012. An interesting blend of reactions to the recession, the slow recovery, health reform, and other variables are factored into the medical cost trend in 2012. The report shares key findings, which includes an explanation of trends contributing to rising costs (accelerators) as well as decreasing cost trends (deflators).
