If the democrat mix of health care and unions is praised why the latest waivers?

Unions should be openly acccepting this.....and didn't the AFL-CIO give 73 million to the 0bama campaign? SEIU is in the latest mix also.

0bama stated it was good for everyone.

    Because the democrats political allies don't want it..... oh, it's okay for the rest of us, but even the unions know it is an absolutely terrible program. What other possible answer is there?

    Just love the liberal excuses: But, but, but, theyre only temporary.

    President Barack Obama’s administration approved 204 new Obamacare waivers in April. Thirty-eight of them went to upscale businesses including four-star hotels, gourmet restaurants, day spas and hip nightclubs in Pelosi’s district. That’s in addition to 27 new waivers for health care or drug companies and the 31 new union waivers Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) approved.

    Other common waiver recipients were labor union chapters, large corporations, financial firms and local governments. But Pelosi’s district’s waivers are the first major examples of upscale, gourmet restaurants and hotels getting a year-long pass from Obamacare.

    The reason the Obama administration says it has given out waivers is to exempt certain companies or policyholders from “annual limit requirements.” The applications for the waivers are “reviewed on a case-by-case basis by department officials who look at 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.” The waivers don’t allow a company to permanently refrain from implementing Obamacare’s stipulations, but companies can reapply for waivers annually through 2014.

    The waivers are for firms that wont be able to meet requirements until 2014 when the state insurance exchange opens. At that point the waivers will no longer be needed. It has nothing to do with problems with the law. Idiot.

    EDIT: Dont pay into what? Obamacare didnt create any medicare/medicaid/social security type fund that everyone has to pay into. The waivers allow certain firms to not abide by the new healthcare rules only if they are unable to, like rules about pre existing conditions and covering every american. You obviously have no idea about this law.

    The waivers are for the period before the Obama health care plans kicks in in 2014 and then they expire; they are somehow designed to help them keep their coverage until then. Sorry about that...
