Now states are getting waivers from HC bill?

Why all these waivers for such a wonderful piece of legislation?

PORTLAND, Maine - The federal government Tuesday granted Maine a waiver of a key provision in President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, citing the likelihood that enforcement could destabilize the state's market for individual health insurance.

Aren't supporters at least BEGINNING to think perhaps this bill isn't exactly as it was purported to be?

  • I think TN is giving the citizens the right to opt out of the program also. Hilarious.

  • Isn't it interesting that this ADMIN. has NO problem in discriminating against ALL the rest of us, who do NOT have waivers?

  • The bill was purported to be health insurance reform, which it is.

    So, do you think it is reformed?

  • This was Olympia Snow's pay-off. She knew what she was voting for and didn't want any part of it. This also opens up an 'equal protection' debate though. If one entire state can get a waiver, all 50 can get a waiver under equal protection.
