Why don't we all get a waiver and be done with it

Of course, I'm talking about ObamaCare:

The number of temporary healthcare reform waivers granted by the Obama administration to organizations climbed to more than 1,000, according to new numbers disclosed by the Department of Health and Human Services.

HHS posted 126 new waivers on Friday, bringing the total to 1,040 organizations that have been granted a one-year exemption from a new coverage requirement included in the healthcare reform law enacted almost a year ago.

I think it's past time for the rest of America to receive a waiver.  This behemoth is a huge mistake, nearly everyone coming to that conclusion though many kicking and screaming.

Repeal this job killing beast.  Sooner rather than later.

Brian The Adequate:

I am more interested in the list of who have applied for a waiver and have been turned down or have been waiting forever for the "review".

Saterp:

No lawyer here, but I read somewhere or other that the granting of 'waivers' is illegal. Why don't the Republicans in congress call this turkey on his misuse of the law?

DaveD:

So, the Obama administration is incredulous that any judge would consider declaring this law void for all. However, the administration has no problem allowing specific parties to opt out of the law because they find it inconvenient to their particular situation. I ask the same question as Saterp. Is the granting of waivers in this manner lawful? It is very difficult for me to put in words the utter contempt I have for this administration.

jim m:

The administration loves the idea of waivers because it allows them to choose winners and losers. It's just one more way they can distribute the spoils.

What this does do is open wide the door to an additional lawsuit should the current ones fail to take down obamacare. The issuing of waivers is going to lead someone to bring a lawsuit on the basis that they violate the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment. As there are no clear guidelines as to why some people are being given waivers and it is not clear as to how many are being denied, if any, this is a lawsuit just waiting to happen.

How many of those organizations getting 'waivers' were beating the drum for ObamaCare less than a year ago?

Don L:

If the GOP suddenly were to develop integrity and courage (that Lion in Oz thing) they would go down, or win, by running on a platform of no waivers - no exceptions - all Americans, especially the political class including the White House. Everyone must live under Obamacare and randomlyu selected - citizen oversight - not politically run by the administration - that death panel thing) with supoena authority. They would toss the idea right back to the Marxists that created it.

Did I mention that it would take courage?

But I dream....

Do any of these 1,040 organizations have competitors? Do these competitors receive the same exemptions, or is the giant thumb of government on the scale against them?

Have any of these 1,040 organizations contributed to Barack Obama? If coincidentally all of them, would this not be malfeasance, if not "High crimes and misdemeanors"?

For the sake of transparency, which Obama touts more than he produces, we should get a list of how much each of these 1,040 organizations has contributed to Obama and his party.

If the legal team of Holder, Abbott, Costello, Laurel, Hardy, and Marx can't get an appeal accepted by the end of this week, Judge Vinson will be issuing the waiver from Florida.

Has anyone been denied a waiver yet? if you ask me, they want this thing to fail and fail miserably so that they can start the process to truck in full on socialized medicine. Take it from an ex-Canadian, Moore's Sicko was a pack of lies.

Exactly.
