    Let me guess she didn't read it even after voting for it.


    So what do you leftest pukes think? I thought the idea was that EVERYONE needed to be in the scheme for the "obama" rape the nation health care to work.

    If that's the case why so many exemptions from something that EVERYONE is supposed to be a part of.

    I just finished reading a commentary that concludes with:

    The world of Obamacare is no place for the little guy.

    The danger of waiver power is that it will be used differentially, giving one private entity a competitive advantage over another. The company denied a waiver can bring suit -- but litigation is expensive and slow.

    Additionally, companies may fear government retaliation: "It is no accident that it is often public-interest groups or patient groups that take on the FDA, for instance. It is simply too risky for a pharmaceutical company with multiple applications before the agency to challenge one action if it is vulnerable to a government-induced slowdown on another," writes Epstein.

    Nor have the courts been particularly solicitous of those who challenge the regulatory state. Epstein observes with regret that "Most judges evince great faith in the administrative state, so that the abuse of discretion that lies at the heart of the waiver problem is, to them, a matter best sorted out by administrative expertise -- a perpetually overestimated pool of wisdom."

    Because there are so few avenues of recourse when we live under a government by waiver, we are forced, as Epstein warns, to trust in the good judgment of bureaucrats and elected officials: "The fate of our rights and liberties is left to the wisdom and discretion of individuals; we are therefore governed by men, not by laws."

    In Marbury v. Madison, Justice Marshall wrote: "The government of the United States has been emphatically termed a government of laws, and not of men. It will certainly cease to deserve this high appellation if the laws furnish no remedy for the violation of a vested legal right." It will also cease to deserve that "high appellation" if we submit to the unreviewable discretion of agencies.


    RealClearPolitics - Wielding Waivers as Weapons


    Waivers to ObamaCare are a modern day equivalent of Catholic Church Indulgences...and anyone who respects The Constitution and the Rule of Law should be appalled.

    Personally I think Everyone should get an open ended Waiver. This waiver is a Colossal Monument to the Effectiveness of Obama Care. I make it a motion to to rename the Waiver the Scott's-Charmin Waiver or the Tidy-Bowl Waiver. Clearly we all need protection from Obama-Care. Come to think of it... The Trojan-Ramses Waiver could be more appropriate. How about the Fuck Yea Count Me In Waiver?
