The law for some but not for others: Threatened with a firestorm of protest just prior to the election because a number of large corporations were going to drop millions from healthcare coverage because of the new Obamacare regulations, the White House today arbitrarily waived for one year those provisions for 30 large companies.
This action raises three obvious points:
- If the healthcare law was so wonderful, why is the White House suspending its inception?
- Why should these companies get a break, and not others? In fact, if I was the owner of a company that did not get a waiver, I would sue.
- This once again proves false the claim by Obama that the law would force no one to lose their healthcare plan. To me, the words “You lie!” come quickly to mind.
Ed Morrissey at hotair.com makes some additional good points about this absurd situation.
