Crony capitalism at its most basic. Create onerous regulations and then give out exemptions to allies and constituents. The only wrinkle in this case is that the demographic subsection unburdening itself of ObamaCare is the same demographic subsection that has been most pointedly exuberant in advocating health care reform, with California Democrats even passing symbolic health care laws just like the ones that their most liberal supporters are now opting out of.
On the federal level, of course, Former House speaker Nancy Pelosi was instrumental in securing ObamaCares passage. And now, for a disproportionate number of businesses in Pelosis San Francisco district, ObamaCare is not their problem, not any more.

Oldie but a goodie.
Would those waivers really hold now since it is a tax? How could just some businesses/organizations be exempted?
I figure that shared misery is the least that we can ask for.
Heard PLASTIC FACE pelosi is having a celebration party on the steps of congress.....AHHHHHH, and BONER wanted our team NOT to gloat if the decision went our way?!! FU boner!!
Great point. I’m sure Pelooser and her liberal counterparts are already working on defending against that.
I called my congress critter and inquired. I only talked to a low level staffer but they seemed to think it was a worthy line of inquiry and I'd encourage everybody to talk it up.
All waivers were always to end at the end of 2013.
same way 45% of the population pay no income tax at all-
Romney might consider granting waivers ONLY to States that vote for him.....
Cancel ALL prior waivers!!!!
She passed it to find out what was in it, and yearned for it so much she EXEMPTED her district.
Since this is now a tax, I would think that all waivers granted are gone.
Which means Republicans can now break out the ads of the Democrats taxing old people into poverty.
A picture of an old couple sitting in a refrigerator box under the Brooklyn bridge will make a lovely backdrop for a commercial.
That is exactly right. I think the most salient point is, if it is such a great bill why do companies in her district want and need a waiver?
The House needs to pass a bill and send it to the Senate eliminating the waiver provision in Obamacare. That would set the stage for everyone feeling the financial pain from Obamacare and will lead to its REPEAL by the next Congress.
