Anyone paying any attention to the news knows that the numbers of waivers for Obamacare have now topped 1000. What people might not be aware of is the reason that so many companies are getting waivers. Number of healthcare reform law waivers climbs above 1,000 - The Hill's Healthwatch Excuse me? I thought that, if I liked my health insurance I could keep it. The plan I used to have was very much like these mini med plans, I just pay for it myself. Since I do not work for a large, politically powerful company, I cannot obtain a waiver, and I not only lost the insurance plan I had, I cannot afford the new ones the law is requiring me to get. I know the typical people will pop in and tell me I have no idea what I am talking about, that I am totally misinterpreting the way the law is written, and tat I am being lied to when the insurance company tells me that it is the fault of the PPACA that I no longer have insurance. Funny thing is, HHS seems to agree with me that it is the fault of the law.
