Pay to Not Play: More ObamaCare Waivers Pile Up

Well, another few months have gone by and another chunk of unions have gotten their waivers from the job-killing health care law known as ObamaCare—the law AFL-CIO boss Richard Trumka said unions shoved down America’s throats.

In January, a full forty percent of the ObamaCare waivers went to unions. Now, according to Mark Hemingway in the Weekly Standard, over half of the ObamaCare waivers have gone to union members.

The plans newly approved for waivers cover more than 160,000 people, bringing to nearly 3.1 million the number of individuals in plans exempted from the health law’s requirements.  Of the participants receiving waivers, more than half – over 1.55 million – are in union plans, raising questions of why such a disproportionate share of union members are receiving waivers from the law’s requirements.

CrossroadsGPS has put together this hard-hitting video illustrating the outright hypocrisy of those who shoved ObamaCare down America’s throats.

And, as an added bonus, 20% of this quarter’s players came from Nancy Pelosi’s district.

Of the 204 new Obamacare waivers President Barack Obama’s administration approved in April, 38 are for fancy eateries, hip nightclubs and decadent hotels in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s Northern California district.

It does make one wonder how many of those fancy eateries, hip nightclubs and decadent hotels waived are contributors to Madame Pelosi. [We certainly know unions are.]
