a conservative perspective and petition going around states this...
"...So far Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has given five entire states and 1,169 businesses waivers that exempt them from provisions of ObamaCare that impose harm. Quite ironically, Sec. Sebelius’ and Rep. Weiner’s allies who helped shove the law down our throats are now requesting, and disproportionately receiving, waivers from the law.
While union employees only make up 11.9% of American workers, 45.55% of workers benefiting from waivers are unionized, almost four times their share of the workforce! The same unions receiving waivers have also happened to provide over $120 million in political support on behalf of Democratic candidates between 2008-2010.
We’re sure there’s no relationship at all between these two facts.
If those who championed the passage of ObamaCare are now receiving waivers from it, shouldn’t those who opposed the law be guaranteed waivers from it? We think so..."
what say you?
It's unconstitutional! No one should comply with this ridiculous law!
We have just seen the tip of the iceberg. Many unions and companies are receiving millions of dollars to help them pay for free insurance. Guess where the millions are coming from?
Yeah, that's right, the government is robbing the taxpayer once again.
To ensure that we protect the coverage that these workers have today until better options are available for them in 2014, the law allows HHS, in extreme cases, to issue temporary waivers from the phase out of annual limits. There are some important facts to remember about these temporary waivers:
•The waivers only apply to one provision of the law – the provisions phasing out annual limits. Insurance companies and employers that receive waivers must comply with all other parts of the Affordable Care Act.
•The waivers last one year. Insurance companies must reapply for the waivers each year between now and 2014 when annual limits on coverage will be completely prohibited and individuals will have more affordable and better private insurance choices in the competitive Exchange markets.
•All employers and insurers that offer mini-med plans may apply for a waiver if they demonstrate that there will be large increases in premiums or a significant decrease in access to coverage without a waiver. You can read a list of employers and insurers that have received waivers here.
This is what the Whitehouse has to say on its site about the waiver issue. It's a bit complicated - I am not so certain it is sinister though.
well, this is exactly what needs to happen, enough of the people need to make their opinions known...sign this petition, I will post the link
here it is, one of them anyway (you will have to sign up for some windows thing using this, I just found out!) but instead, I cut and pasted it into my own email program and sent it to the address below...
