Well Gosh, I Know I’m Shocked By This

Amazingly, if you are a large contributor or a union that guarantees the votes then you get magically exempted from the bestest most wonderfullest legislation ever

If you would like to know what the White House really thinks of Obamacare, there’s an easy way. Look past its press releases. Ignore its promises. Forget its talking points. Instead, simply witness for yourself the outrageous way the White House protects its best friends from Obamacare.

Last year, we learned that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) had granted 111 waivers to protect a lucky few from the onerous regulations of the new national health care overhaul. That number quickly and quietly climbed to 222, and last week we learned that the number of Obamacare privileged escapes has skyrocketed to 733.

Among the fortunate is a who’s who list of unions, businesses and even several cities and four states (Massachusetts, New Jersey, Ohio and Tennessee) but none of the friends of Barack feature as prominently as the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

Read the whole thing, and tell me again why this entire mess should not be tossed on the dung heap.

    Well, my feet are firmly in man bites dog country after hearing this.

    I wish they would put pen to paper and genreate some legislation prohibiting this. I know it wouldn’t get passed the Senate but it would generate more publicity than those ever so widely followed legislative hearings.

    I think the Florida decision will be out this morning.
