  • Because it wasn't a healthcare bill, it was an insurance company giveaway bill

  • Cool, I better get my request in.
    It seems that their idea to get all this money to be able to run this stupid new system during the first 4 yrs is going down the drain.
    Wonder just why it doesn't seem to bother them one bit. Something to think about.

  • I don't get it, either. This is the plan that is supposed to save all of us from the twin evils of selfish insurance companies and inadequate health care access. If so many groups are getting waivers, they are being denied the salvation that was promised to all of us. And that's just not fair. Those poor people. How can we stand by and allow this to happen. We must all rise up and protect them from this atrocity. Waivers are bad, bad things. Everyone should have this wonderful blessing; everyone should partake, from the lowest to the highest, even Congress and the President himself. No one should be denied; no one should be forced to go without. That was the whole purpose, wasn't it? Equal access to quality healthcare for everyone. No waivers, please, We want no one left behind.

    ;)

    Oh, forget it. Let's scrap the whole thing. It's trash; This many waivers proves it.

  • Another example of ~ Obama Lied... SEIU promoted ObamaCare and ind. SEIU branches have received quite a few 'waivers'..... So many Americans fell fro the craptacular ObamaCare.. They were played by Obama, Dems, and their special interest cronies

  • I would have my DH ask for a waiver, but it's doubtful he would get one. He doesn't belong to a union. Oh well.
