Ha Ha Ha - And Here You Thought Everyone Was Going To Be Subjected To Obamacare
I posted long ago that there were going to be many, many waivers - to companies and unions - who did not have to participate in Obamacare.Â You know what happened?Â You got it.Â I was called a liar by lib/progs on Gather.Â "Show me the links!" they demanded.
Well, here's the list thus far - 111 of them - posted on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services:Approved Applications for Waiver of the Annual Limits Requirements of the PHS Act Section 2711 as of November 1, 2010
Not surprisingly, to me anyway, these unions are included in that list of 111.
#12â€“ UFCW Allied Trade Health & Welfare Trust
#14â€“ IBEW No.915
#19â€“ Asbestos Workers Local 53 Welfare Fund
#33â€“ Plumbers & Pipefitters Local 123 Welfare Fund

Here's what's on The Blaze: Lots of Unions Are on the â€˜Hiddenâ€™ List to Receive ObamaCare Waivers
The Blaze asks:Â If ObamaCare is such a good idea, then why are there 111 companies on the waiver list?
You know...the big companies like Walmart and McDonalds are the ones who cut the hours of employees so they didn't have to provide them with benefits.Â Those are the very companies that we should all be boy-cotting until they agree to provide better employee benefits.Â (It doesn't take government mandates to get things done.Â Consumers hold power that they don't realize.)
And so many little businesses have tried to provide benefits for employees.Â They're not getting waivers, so they'll have to decide which employees they have to let go so they can afford to provide Obamacare to the rest.Â Or they'll have to decide if paying the fine is cheaper than providing benefits.
And yet some people think this law is wonderful.Â Why do they hate America and free markets so?
