The Great American Health Care Waver Scam

Republican Senator Pat Roberts comments from the floor last week:

"…I have been shocked by the number of Obamacare waivers that have been coming out of the Department of Health and Human Services. According to the New York Times, one hundred and eleven waivers have been granted to employers to allow them to avoid the new health insurance mandates.

The only thing more shocking than the number of waivers is who is getting them. Would you believe that they are some of the most ardent supporters of health care reform?

Unions like the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), the United Federation of Teachers, and the Transport Workers Union have all applied for and been granted waivers from the rules.

The fact is, Obamacare is bad for business, bad for workers, bad for seniors, and bad for taxpayers."

Rush Limbaugh hits on some of the low water marks coming from the Obama Administration regarding it's health care 'reform':

And here is Michelle Malkin discussing the topic:

I'd be interested to learn of the total number of waver requests, how many are unions compared to the percentage the unions made up of those approved.
