Number of healthcare reform law waivers climbs above 1,000


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. Waivers have become a hot-button issue for Republicans, eager to expose any vulnerabilities in the reform law.

Republican lawmakers have seized on the waivers as proof that the law they want to see repealed is flawed, and they have accused the administration of giving them waivers as gifts to union allies. The administration has rejected both claims as Republicans on the House Energy and Commerce Committee have asked HHS for in-depth details about every waiver decision and request.

If this keeps going, the 12 people who will actually be mandated to be covered will have one hell of an insurance program.

It's the standard game. The Democrats create an unsustainable requirement and then exempt their allies from compliance. The result is that anyone who didn't contribute to their campaigns gets an onerous mandate and increased scrutiny from that division of IRS agents that they hired to enforce this travesty. The carrot is the waiver, the stick is the IRS and compliance, and the yoke is the federal government's mandate.

Nice. Throw in the federal and state workforces that get their healthcare paid for by the government and that pretty much precludes every union member in America.
