As Of Today 1,040 Waivers Handed Out By Obama For HIS Obamacare

The Department of Health and Human Services has found a way to top itself. On Friday, Kathleen Sebelius issued another 126 waivers, bringing the total to 1,040. All told, health care waivers now cover 2.6 million Americans.

Obama administration keeps giving out Obamacare waivers, despite new Republican spotlight

The Daily Caller

March 7, 2011

Although House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Rep. Fred Upton, Michigan Republican, is about to launch a congressional investigation into Obamacare waiver selection, the administration continues to approve waivers from health-care law for labor unions and others. In fact, since Upton first requested documentation from Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in late January, the administration has issued 307 more Obamacare waivers, 47 of which for labor unions. That brings the total number of waivers to 1,040. Labor unions received 269 of those.

That means unions received about 26 percent of all waivers the administration has given out, but only about 12 percent of workers nationwide are unionized.

If Obamacare is so great, why all the waivers? Why are all the unions who supported it getting waivers?

Good question Bob. The number of waivers keeps rising and I think he's losing it. He wants socialism so bad he doesn't care who he hurts. Its time for charges from the House.

These numerous waivers should add to the reasons for the eventual court ordered death of obamacare. The unconstitutionality of this health bill is glaring. It is more an avenue of govt. control over the citizens than it is an aid to help us with health needs.
