Skip to comments.Obamacare Waivers Granted to Nevada and New Hampshire (Law of the Land except NV & NH)

President Obamas Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), headed by Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, has now granted Obamacare waivers to the entire states of Nevada and New Hampshire. In its letter to Nevada, HHS admits that, without the waiver, there is a reasonable likelihood that Obamacare would result in market destabilization, and thus harm to consumers. Thus, to try to keep insurers from fleeing that state, HHS has exempted Nevada from a portion of Obamacares long list of mandates and requirements. HHS also admits to a reasonable likelihood that Obamacare would destabilize the individual market in New Hampshire, and has granted it a statewide waiver as well

Why are you posting 2011?
Another thumb in the eye. Wow, these people are so hateful
Nevada! Hmmmm. Isn’t that where Dingy Harry the weasel is from?
Ping for another day. A few left!
The article is from 2011; do they still have these waivers?
Ok, this is old news, hmmm
This article is from 2011. Is this still in effect?
So, Dingy is off the hook and can let the filthy, lard laden porkulus CR die a deserved Death.
obamacare is INTENDED to destabilize the individual market, but in a slow, managed fashion so the proles don't get distracted from Monday Night Football and such.
The waivers definitely expire but I’m not sure when.
Don’t know, but posted for reference.
They have just telegraphed the solution for the rest of the 48 states.
Insurance companies just need to start threatening to pull out of all states - and we can get the rest of the states waivers as well.
To hell with this law.
Start working people. Start working.
To refute “it’s the law of the land”.
One nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
What a lie we live.
And of course, hurting Reid’s reelection prospects is of paramount importance.
The legal gymnastics and convoluted contortions that were performed by Justice Roberts are beyond comprehension. Worse, he engaged in rewriting the law as Congress “may have intended” instead of accepting what Congress did intend, in order to “save” the unconstitutional legislation by doing what he has no authority to do - re-writing a statute - not once, but twice. Senator Lee has written is succinctly: “He also changed the Medicaid expansion portion. The bill stated that if a state did not accept the new Medicaid expansion, it would forfeit all of it’s existing Federal Medicaid payments, leaving the state to pay for everything that they had formerly shared with the Federal govt. That was clearly an unconstitutional portion of the law, so instead of striking it, the Court re-wrote it, allowing states to opt out of expansion while keeping their current Federal subsidy. The Court “fixed” the provision to make it Constitutional. So we have a law which, because the Court altered it, is a law that has not passed Congress nor been signed by the President.”
Sorry to say this but I hope John Roberts burns in hell with the rest of the dems.
he will toast alongside an idiot Kenyan
I would guess this 2011 waiver was granted to Nevada to help Reid get reelected last November. New Hampshire is a mystery to me.
2011 story .....
Harry the Dingy Undertaker was reelected in 2010.
Ayotte is off the hook too. She campaigned as a conservative, NH was bought off, and now she’s a saboteur, a real mini-mcain. This is hugely important. Isn’t a Judas kind of thing?
Ok. I thought wrong. But some Congress critter from Nevada must have needed that waiver for 2012. Reid is up for reelection in 16. Good.
This “law of the land” meme bothers me, along with the Dem line that Obamacare was passed by congress, signed by the president, and affirmed by the supreme court.
The 1-year business mandate delay was not approved by congress, signed by the president, or affirmed by the supreme court.
The congressional waiver was not approved by congress, signed by the president, or affirmed by the supreme court...
None of it was passed by Congress. But, within this law that is not a law, there is a line authorizing (sic) the Secretary of HHS (the wicked witch of the West from Kansas) to make all the necessary changes to the bill she needs to. “The Secretary shall . . .” is the most common phrase in the 2,500 document, and the regulations she has written since then amount to anywhere from 10,000 pages to 26,000 pages depending on how you count. In short, it gives ENORMOUS power to the executive branch. Welcome to Soviet-style dictatorship, comrades.
The waiver was from the 80-20 rule, that they have to spend 80% on healthcare and can spend only 20% on salaries and advertising. Nevada asked for 72-28 and was given 75-25
