    In November the Obama Administration had already granted 111 Obamacare waivers to special US companies… And, they hid this information from the American public. It took 6 clicks to find out this information on the government’s health care website.

    By January the number of companies granted Obamacare waivers jumped from 229 to 729 covering over 2.2 million employees. At least three SEIU Chapters, including one in Chicago, were included on the list.

    The Hill reports that 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.

    At some point soon, it will be easier to post a list of the companies the law will be applied to, instead of the ones it won't.

    "ObamaCare" which is a much more conservative iteration of health care then "RomneyCare" has it's flaws. First off..it should have been a government single payer plan..or a version of Medicare extended to young people. Be that as it may..President Obama has offered to let states that want waivers, have them provided they can come up with their own plan that both covers the same amount of people with the same sort of quality.

    But when push comes to shove..the Real Conservative health care plan was pointed out by Representative Alan Grayson when he said it's "Die and Die Quickly" and implemented by Governor Jan Brewer when she did just that..to two of her very own Citizens in Arizona.
