House Prepares Investigation of Obamacare Waivers Friday, February 04, 2011 By Fred Lucas
(CNSNews.com) The Republican congressman leading the investigation into the Obama administrations decision to grant more than 700 waivers to the new health care law is questioning whether the law could be effective if so many waivers are needed.
Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) also noted the high percentage of Obama-supporting labor unions that received waivers -- which exempt them from a provision in the new health care law that bans annual limits on what insurance plans will pay for medical coverage.
The American people repeatedly have been told that the new health care law is an effective and responsible plan for overhauling the nations health care system, Rep. Stearns told CNSNews.com in a statement. Yet, if the law is so good, why are so many waivers to the law being granted?

It's waivers for favors. They helped him get the bill passed, so he sets them free.

Here is the list of the waivers. I recall having read that AARP (who pushed like hell to get ObamaCare) received a waiver, but I don't see them on the list.
If anyone knows where that article is please let me know.
Look at all the Unions who received a waiver. 733 Waivers

Next should come GE. They only have to pay 3.6% in taxes. Other businesses pay in the mid 30's. We pay at least 40. They got environmental wavers just recently, too, and why did they receive tax payer money from TARP?

I recall having read that AARP (who pushed like hell to get ObamaCare) received a waiver, but I don't see them on the list.
From what I can tell, a number of people have suggested that AARP should apply for a waiver. But, I haven't found any evidence that they should.
I think AARP pushed for ObamaCare because of the Medicare reductions. AARP sells Medigap insurance plans, and the reductions will result in more demand for their insurance.
In other words, they did it for more money (from their members).
