    The elimination of annual limits isn't going away. The "replace" in repeal-and-replace has the same provision:

    SEC. 103. NO ANNUAL OR LIFETIME SPENDING CAPS.

    Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a health insurance issuer (including an entity licensed to sell insurance with respect to a State or group health plan) may not apply an annual or lifetime aggregate spending cap on any health insurance coverage or plan offered by such issuer.​

    Actually, the repeal-and-replace provision is technically more stringent because it immediately eliminates annual limits, whereas the ACA immediately eliminates lifetime limits and raises the floor on annual spending caps each year until eventually annual caps are eliminated a few years down the road.

    The waivers being issued are not permanent, they're transition measures. Do you think temporary waivers for the annual cap elimination wouldn't be requested or awarded if repeal-and-replace were to be instituted?

    I would really like to know who hired you and how much does it pay?
    The average hobbist just doesn't know all the details that you know. Yet, you do hide the bad stuff that's in the bill.

    Just read the bills (wasn't that the refrain in the summer of 2009?). Knowing what's written down isn't rocket science. In fact, I would think that's a prerequisite for thinking about and discussing the various proposals that have been offered.

    We live in a time where every piece of legislation offered in this Congress (and several prior Congresses) is literally seconds away on THOMAS (Library of Congress) . Take advantage.

    Good story, but why won't you tell the truth?

    This is how Despotic regimes gain allegiance from large groups of people and organizations. First you institute draconian rules and regulations...then you exempt your favorite folks assuring they are taken care of. If they ever step out of line....boom....down come the rules they've been exempt from on their heads.

    The Fox News analyst is right. In giving all these waivers the Whitehouse is admitting the Healthcare law is a JOB KILLER.

    Why do we need all these waivers if the healthcare law is so great?

    The hypocrisy of this is unions were really pushing for this law and now they are looking for waivers from it FOR THEIR EMPLOYEES???????

    Meanwhile if you are a small business, you have to live under this law. The businsses getting the waivers are the very 2%, aka rich corporations, that liberals hate so much!

    I mean this reveals the huge gap between liberal rhetoric and the truth.

    Liberals were going to get even with the "man" and look who's benefitting from being the man????

    Try to weazel and spin your way out of this hypocrisy liberals!
