"they did what they needed to do to survive"

Michelle Malkin talks a bit about the Wavers and what posi­tion the admin­is­tra­tion has put busi­ness:

One com­pany offi­cial expressed con­cern to me that media cov­er­age was demo­niz­ing busi­nesses who applied for the waivers. I cer­tainly don’t see these waiver appli­cants as vil­lains. They were poten­tial vic­tims of top-​down gov­ern­ment man­dates and they did what they needed to do to sur­vive. As for the unions who all pushed hard to ram Oba­macare down America’s throat and then rushed to the front of the line for tax and reg­u­la­tory exemp­tions, thanks for prov­ing what an ill-​fated scheme the fed­eral health care takeover was from the get-​go.

But a lot of friends of the O have been taken care of too:

It’s all about con­trol. If cen­tral plan­ners can’t dic­tate what health ben­e­fits qual­ify as “good,” what plans qual­ify as “afford­able” and how health care dol­lars are best spent, then nobody can. The ulti­mate goal, of course: pre­cip­i­tat­ing a mas­sive shift from pri­vate to gov­ern­ment insurance.

McDonald’s, Olive Gar­den, Red Lob­ster and Jack in the Box are among the large, headline-​garnering employ­ers who received the tem­po­rary waivers. But per­haps the most polit­i­cally note­wor­thy ben­e­fi­cia­ries of the HHS waiver pro­gram: Big Labor.

The Ser­vice Employ­ees Ben­e­fit Fund, which insures a total of 12,000 SEIU health care work­ers in upstate New York, secured its Oba­macare exemp­tion in Octo­ber. The Local 25 SEIU Wel­fare Fund in Chicago also nabbed a waiver for 31,000 of its enrollees. SEIU, of course, was one of Obamacare’s loud­est and biggest spend­ing pro­po­nents. The waivers come on top of the mas­sive sweet­heart deal that SEIU and other unions cut with the Obama admin­is­tra­tion to exempt them from the health care mandate’s oner­ous “Cadil­lac tax” on high-​cost health care plans until 2018.

This is sim­ply fool­ish, if com­pa­nies and unions have to escape Oba­macare to sur­vive then how much the small busi­ness and the avg guy?

It’s like a man named Wal­ter once told me, You fish where you can catch them.

Michelle Malkin talks a bit about the Wavers and what position the administration has put business:

One company official expressed concern to me that media coverage was demonizing businesses who applied for the waivers. I certainly don’t see these waiver applicants as villains. They were potential victims of top-down government mandates and they did what they needed to do to survive. As for the unions who all pushed hard to ram Obamacare down America’s throat and then rushed to the front of the line for tax and regulatory exemptions, thanks for proving what an ill-fated scheme the federal health care takeover was from the get-go.

But a lot of friends of the O have been taken care of too:

It’s all about control. If central planners can’t dictate what health benefits qualify as “good,” what plans qualify as “affordable” and how health care dollars are best spent, then nobody can. The ultimate goal, of course: precipitating a massive shift from private to government insurance.

McDonald’s, Olive Garden, Red Lobster and Jack in the Box are among the large, headline-garnering employers who received the temporary waivers. But perhaps the most politically noteworthy beneficiaries of the HHS waiver program: Big Labor.

The Service Employees Benefit Fund, which insures a total of 12,000 SEIU health care workers in upstate New York, secured its Obamacare exemption in October. The Local 25 SEIU Welfare Fund in Chicago also nabbed a waiver for 31,000 of its enrollees. SEIU, of course, was one of Obamacare’s loudest and biggest spending proponents. The waivers come on top of the massive sweetheart deal that SEIU and other unions cut with the Obama administration to exempt them from the health care mandate’s onerous “Cadillac tax” on high-cost health care plans until 2018.

This is simply foolish, if companies and unions have to escape Obamacare to survive then how much the small business and the avg guy?

It’s like a man named Walter once told me, You fish where you can catch them.
