Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

ObamaCare waivers reaches 1,000+

The legislation that was so absolutely critical to the survival of this republic that…over 1000 entities have asked to be exempted from its onerous and burdensome requirements.  Details:

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.

Big, flaming lie:

The department also said the number of waivers has been steadily decreasing. HHS approved more than 500 in December, which it attributed to most plan years starting Jan. 1. It then approved 200 waivers in January and 126 in February.

The number of waivers went from 0 to 222 to 770 to over 1,000.  How in the h3ll is that “number of waivers has been steadily decreasing”?  As this story illustrates, the number of waivers is going UP.  If they mean the rate of added waivers is decreasing, fine.  But that’s not what the liars in the administration and the MSM (pardon the redundancy) are saying, though.

Flashback: unions and pro-“reform” groups that pushed hard for ObamaCare’s passage granted waivers from its requirements.

  1. Nothing new here. Just more lies and misrepresentation by an administration which thrives on deceit and falsification of data to suit their purposes. Sebelius is just another liar and is hoping no one will notice.
    All the lies and fabrications need to be remembered come 2012. Not a “D” left in the government, that’s my goal for 2012. Can’t trust any of them.

  5. If we can fire up the republicans to do what is needed to be done to stop O’care, hopefully, nobody. The number of waivers shows the fallacy of the claims made by the dems as to how good it is. Folks gotta be stupid to buy this bunch of horse crap as being good for this country. Just like the rest of their agenda. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

  6. JG…you ROCK! Problem is, the republicans have, in recent history, disappointed the FIRE out of me. Strike while the irons are hot, don’t play patty-cake with these little sissies!
