It takes on a whole new meaning, ok it is a different word.. but there sure has been a lot of “waiving” going on with Obamacare. Shouldn’t the waive requests be proof positive that this is not something that America wants, or that will work for our country? I have said it before & I will say it again, if YOU want universal or nationalized healthcare, there are other countries to go to, please go there.. it is already set up, no waiting required, no need to get past its growing pains, they are already established.
Michelle Malkin has a great article.. Gangway! Gangway! Save me! Waive me!
waiver-mania started with McDonald’s and Jack in the Box; spread to Dish Networks, hair salon chain Regis Corp and resort giant Universal Orlando; took hold among every major Big Labor organization from the AFL-CIO to the CWA to the SEIU; roped in the nationalized health care promoters at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (whose board of trustees includes health care czar Nancy Ann DeParle); and is now gripping entire states (Maine, New Hampshire and Nevada all recently got in on the act).
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi’s congressional district, a cluster of San Francisco small businesses is among the latest recipients of get-out-of-Obamacare passes
Seattle-based REI. The trendy Pacific Northwest outdoor equipment retailer’s progressive CEO and Democratic campaign donor, Sally Jewell, appeared with President Obama in 2009 to tout White House health care reform initiatives
To date, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has granted federal health care law exemptions to more than three million American workers covered by more than 1,300 unions, companies and insurers who had voluntarily offered low-cost health plans with annual benefits limits.
In the tone of an infomercial.. “but folks, that’s not all”.. AARP has jumped on the waiver-wagon.
AARP to Receive Obamacare Waiver AARP was a prominent and vocal supporter of the unpopular overhaul, stubbornly insisting that seniors would benefit from the law’s provisions, despite strenuous objections from its members.
Naturally the White House denies favoritism, but look again at who is getting waivers.. those who supported Obamacare, or are Obama’s pets (like the unions).
Here is a flash back to AARP, saying they are not supporting Obamacare, while they ignore their members. They then take their mic and leave. The meeting continued civilly with out the AARP reps.
John Ransom explains how to get your waiver. But apparently you need to be a company that donates politically.
Mr Ransom also discovered the consulting firm helping to get the waivers supports Republicans & the Tea Party. So that makes me wonder, are they working for or against Obamacare. And if they are working against, is this their method for killing the bill?
