From the looks of the roster of opt-outs to whom the White House has given special exemptions to ObamaCare, it appears to be a Who's Who of Groups Too Democrat To Snare.
Pardon me for sounding a bit self-serving and populist but if the buddies of the White House can Opt-Out of ObamaCare – You and I should be able to as well.
In September, Obamacare promoter and Democrat Rep. Ron Wyden applied for a special state waiver from the very federal mandate he advocated for everyone else.
Within a few weeks McDonald's Double Arch got it's own Obamacare waiver after informing federal regulators that it couldn't afford ObamaCare and would have to drop its affordable health insurance plan for nearly 30,000 restaurant workers unless it got a pass.
In early October, the Obama administration announced it had granted waivers not only to McDonald's, but also to several other firms and oh yeah - labor unions—Groups Too Democrat To Snare.
Of Course Obama and Congress are Exempt.
I almost forgot Muslims are also exempt.
...But that wasn't enough back-room dealing -- HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius approved an incredible 111 waivers for businesses AND Unions and other providers of health insurance.
Just curious... Which party is the party of big corporations and special interest groups?
According to HHS, waivers depend on "a series of factors including whether or not a premium increase is large or if a significant number of enrollees would lose access to their current plan because the coverage would not be offered in the absence of a waiver."
Ummm...According to the Medicare Actuary – Millions and Millions of Seniors will lose access to their current plan. Does that mean Seniors can Opt Out?
Hey Obama – I want to Opt Out TOO!
Please add my name to the National ObamaCare Opt Out Registry!
The NOOO! List is APPROACHING 1,000,000 STRONG
