Nearly Three weeks ago, it was announced the Obama administration had issued 111 waivers, exempting companies/unions/etc from ObamaCare... If ObamaCare is all that Democrats (in DC and 'some' on CM) tout it as being~Are your surprised with this?? HHS Waiver Mania?
The Obama Administration has quietly granted even more waivers to the new federal health reform law, doubling the number in just the last three weeks to a new total of 222.
One of the more recognizable business names included on the newly-expanded list of waivers issued by the feds is that of Waffle House, which received a waiver on November 23 for health coverage that covers 3,947 enrollees.
Another familiar name was that of Universal Orlando, which runs a variety of very popular resorts in the Orlando, Florida area. Universal was given a waiver for plans that cover 668 workers.
These waivers deal with limited health benefit plans, sometimes referred to as “mini-med” policies, which companies as large as McDonald’s use for some its employees.
Obamacare's mandates would force these companies to drop coverage entirely for part-time/lower-wage employees under full ObamaCare enforcement. So they need a waiver....
In Your Opinion~ Does Issuing 222 waivers (and counting) send a message that this law is unworkable? If not, how many waivers will it take for the message to be clear?Answer Question

It angers me that the politicians (legal eagles, for the most part) refused to address REAL HC reform, beginning with tort reform. THEY will never place the country's needs before their own pocketbooks. THEY do not care that they passed a half azzed bill, THEY are unaffected-THAT'S what angers me the most- citizens being treated as third class citizens, while we fund their Cadillac plans-
