Sure, ObamaCare is great for you. So great that the president is now offering 3 million members of his base ObamaClemency:
The Obama Administration has rolled out another 129 waivers to one provision of the new health reform law, with almost half of those new exemptions going to various union groups. The extra waivers bring the total to 1,168. …The waivers now cover almost three million Americans, but the feds argue that is “less than 2 percent of all Americans who have private health insurance.
The waiver gets you out of “a portion of the law that in 2011 requires an annual benefit limit of no less than $750,000.” Sure beats a PBA card.
The left loves to perseverate on the threat to democracy posed by the top one percent of the country’s earners. Wonder if they’ll have any complaints about the two percent of Americans the president has officially exempted from obeying the law of the land.
We are deep in banana- republic territory here. The head of state forces an eccentric law onto his subjects and then lets his closest supporters get out of it so that they alone may continue to prosper. To call this more of the “same old” cynical Washington back-scratch machine is to underestimate the extent of the damage taking place before our eyes.
