    Rep. Anthony Weiner said Wednesday he was looking into how a health law waiver might work for New York City.

    .........."This Obama Care Thing Is Turning Into A National Comedy !"

    Weiner, who is likely to run for mayor of New York, said that because of the city’s special health care infrastructure, his office was looking into alternatives that might make more sense. Weiner is one of the health care law’s biggest supporters; during the debate leading up to reform, he was one of the last holdouts in Congress for the public option.

    “The president said, ‘If you have better ideas that can accomplish the same thing, go for it,’” said Weiner. “I’m in the process now of trying to see if we can take [President Barack Obama] up on it in the city of New York, … and I’m taking a look at all of the money we spend in Medicaid and Medicare and maybe New York City can come up with a better plan.”

    New York is one of two states that pass on Medicaid expenses to cities and localities, so “the city winds up having an enormous Medicaid expense,” Weiner said.

    The congressman was trying to debunk Republican “myths” about the health care law during a speech at the Center for American Progress. He used the waivers as way to describe how flexible the law actually is and how “this notion that the government is shoving the bill down people’s throats” is not true.

    Weiner says he ‘wrote’ the House health care bill

    By Maggie Haberman

    Here’s a clip of Rep. Anthony Weiner at a town hall meeting, asked about the health care bill, declaring, "I wrote the bill."


    "… The bill and I are one."
    Plus Megi, you clipped off some good parts of the article.

    “The administration needs to make this argument more forcefully,” he said. “A lot of people who got waivers were … people who are our friends.”

    So Weiner is admitting that the Admin are using the waivers as political favors.

    How about this? Only organizations or individuals who opposed Obamacare can opt out. And that includes members of congress and their staffs.

    Why would Weiner want to opt out of such a brilliant example of Democratic Socialism as the O Blah Blah care boondoggle?

    Franken has never been funny to me, he has always been a joke though.
