If Obamacare is such a great health care plan for America, why does Barack Obama keep allowing waivers to be granted by the Health and Human Services Department? The “waiverpalooza” is nearing 1500. Each waiver granted just proves how much of a failure Obamacare truly was. How can Barack Obama praise his government take over of health care and forcing people to purchase insurance, when he continually gives waivers?
The Health and Human Services Department granted 39 new waivers last month from part of the healthcare law, bringing the total to just shy of 1,500.
In September, HHS will stop the process of granting a new batch of one-year waivers at the end of each month. Companies have until Sept. 22 to file their initial application for a one-year reprieve and seek an extension to carry them through the next three years.
Department officials said they decided on the September cutoff because, by then, every company that thinks it needs a waiver would have had time to apply. The comparatively low number of approvals in June may back up that explanation. The 39 new waivers granted last month bring the total to 1,471.
Long after Obamacare was forced down the throats of Americans by a partisan Democrat vote, 53% of Americans believe the law should be repealed. As stated at the Gatway Pundit, Senator Barrasso (R-WY) is going to introduce a bill that will allow all Americans to apply for Obamacare waivers. Why not, why should waiver only be allowed for some? This is still America, isn’t it?
Make no mistake about it, Obmacare will be a huge campaign issue in the 2012 elections, Obama and the Democrats find themselves once again on the wrong side of the issue with We the People.
