Of the 204 new Obamacare waivers President Barack Obama’s administration approved in April, 38 are for fancy eateries, hip nightclubs and decadent hotels in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s Northern California district



That’s in addition to the 27 new waivers for health care or drug companies and the 31 new union waivers Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services approved.

Pelosi’s district secured almost 20 percent of the latest issuance of waivers nationwide, and the companies that won them didn’t have much in common with companies throughout the rest of the country that have received Obamacare waivers.

Other common waiver recipients were labor union chapters, large corporations, financial firms and local governments. But Pelosi’s district’s waivers are the first major examples of luxurious, gourmet restaurants and hotels getting a year-long pass from Obamacare.

For instance, Boboquivari’s restaurant in Pelosi’s district in San Francisco got a waiver from Obamacare. Boboquivari’s advertises $59 porterhouse steaks, $39 filet mignons and $35 crab dinners.

Guess She and her Buddies finally saw the Health Care Bill (after it was passed) and they all realized they didn't like it once they found out what was inside the ObamaCare Gift Box.

This is a disgrace. I am about to lose it with these morons. And, I am not talking about Pelosi-specifically. I am talking about the people who keep voting her in... and the ones that will come along on ATS and defend her and her actions. I guess anything can be obtained-for the right price.



Yes, Democracy at it's finest.

She should be arrested, along with the rest of the crooks involved in this mess.

Better grab hold of your angles a little harder cause here it comes....

If this doesnt convince the kool-aid drinkers that Pelosi and Co. aren't a bunch of elitist nuts, then nothing will.

We'll have to find some way to get the info into the Kool-Aide as I think the spell they are under makes them unable to comprehend what they see and read.

The funny thing is that they have to pay for it along with us non-Kool Aiders but yet they still support these Bozo's. "Tax me more, please.!!!!"

I like that idea. Hmmm.

Let me think about it and see if I can get the RNC to get something going.

Can any of you tell me what the waiver is and is it permanent??

Is anyone really surprised?
Didn't GE, GM and some other major companies get waivers as well?
If any follower of Obama and friends are still under the falsehood of Hope, Change and transparent Govt with this happening, you really should get your head checked.

I by no means, defend the Republicans either, as they would push from the other direction.

Everyone, both parties are just performing flanking moves. Dem from the left and Rep from the right. Divide and conquer.

I don't work for a company that qualifies for a waiver -- if I did I would be glad it did and I would be looking forward to 2014.

It is easy to check the public record there have been 733 wavers granted this year here's the list. The list gives the Co. name how many employees are affected and the dates of the waiver.

www.hhs.gov...

The waivers are granted to protect people who are getting marginal insurance - insurance called mini meds high deductible and restrictive policies. These policies are provided by companies that feel they should offer something but they can't afford the prices for health insurance. Under the law these mini med policies are going away to be replace by insurance options that will be offered by the states in 2014. Until the time that these markets are established the employees of these companies with these policies are going to be allowed to remain at least status quo until better offerings are established in 2014 (when the affordability and scope of their coverage will improve)

The waivers are for one year. If your company qualifies it is eligible Pelosi does not have to be contacted or paid off to hand out this favor. (Many of these waivers are granted to restaurants and other tourist type establishments, is it really a stretch to believe that San Francisco might be a little more likely than Ida Grove Iowa to have places like this) It helps both the company that is responsible enough to provide some kind of insurance and the employees of the company, it is a good policy.

The waivers are established as such -

--"To ensure that we protect the coverage that these workers have today until better options are available for them in 2014, the law allows HHS, in extreme cases, to issue temporary waivers from the phase out of annual limits. There are some important facts to remember about these temporary waivers:

-- The waivers only apply to one provision of the law – the provisions phasing out annual limits. Insurance companies and employers that receive waivers must comply with all other parts of the Affordable Care Act.

-- The waivers last one year. Insurance companies must reapply for the waivers each year between now and 2014 when annual limits on coverage will be completely prohibited and individuals will have more affordable and better private insurance choices in the competitive Exchange markets.

-- All employers and insurers that offer mini-med plans may apply for a waiver if they demonstrate that there will be large increases in premiums or a significant decrease in access to coverage without a waiver.


Ok since facts aren't really that important you may carry on with the socialism sky is falling faux outrage.

Apparently, the rules only apply to some people.

--------------------------------------------------
That's OK. When President Sarah Palin moves into the White House then step 1 is
to grant waivers to ALL 50 states. 300 Million Waivers granted !

The waivers are established as such: if your union pours cash into the Obama
re-election campaign -- you get a pretty waiver with a bow on top.

-------------------------------------------------
If you live near Pelosi and you are a BFF then - you also get a pretty little waiver
with a bow on top.

-----------------------------------
Let's go ahead and pass it so we can find out what's inside it!

Oh no! Can i have a waiver please? WHY? Because ObamaCare SUCKS !!!

------------------------
You can't spin your way out of this one.
This stinks to high heaven and you know it!

Ok show me how what you say is so -- otherwise your statements are just poo flung against the wall.

Show me how the companies on that list have any priority over any other company that qualifies. The unions are represented because they are at least providing some (if not great) healthcare for the members of the union that don't provide insurance at all. Should the unions not be doing this should these people just be left to their. own devices. Did you notice the towns and villages and small companies with 4 or 5 covered workers -- how did they swing the influence.

Like I said poo against the wall.

The unions are bragging that they - live - in the White House!
They have Obama in their back pocket.
----------------------------------------------------------
Clearly, nobody wants ObamaCare.
Step 1: Grant Waivers to ALL 50 states - exempt every man, woman and child in the USA.
Step 2: The neolibs throw their hands up in the air and say "Let's just forget the whole
thing. Repeal ObamaCare altogether! " It's over.

More poo --

Clearly nobody wants Obamacare -- should be clearly Tea Baggers don't want healthcare (unless you break it out to them point by point - then they are not so much against it. They take a lot of hand holding.remember the sign - Keep government out of my Medicare?

Step 1 waivers dont work like that -- see above
Step 2 whats a neolib.

like I said -- more poo -- facts arent just stuff that you pull out of that dark place where the sun don't shine and so far you don't have any - poo against the wall.

Apparently you are rich and have got yours and that's where it stops. Good for you, but there are an awful lot of people that aren't as fortunate.

I think Obama just handed the Repubs and States the perfect out.

If it isn't good for all of those people covered under the granted waivers, then it isn't good enough for the rest of us.

Let's face it.

OBAMACARE is a piece of Crapola. All you suckers that keep supporting it... are fools. IMO>

Anon72 -- you have no idea what the waivers are do you?? Willful ignorance is not an attractive trait. Apparently you feel that these people don't deserve any form of healthcare coverage at all. Good for you. Godd for them that not everyone thinks like you.

If it is so great why is everyone running away from it?
I smell a socialist rat.
If you want the Public Option then move to Canada.
It won't work down here.
----------------------------------------
If you move to Canada, i recommend Nova Scotia.

--------------------------
Believe me when i tell you that the clock is ticking on ObamaCare.
Remember the rotten deals to get it pushed through congress?
- The corn husker kick back -
- The Louisiana Purchase -

We will repeal ObamaCare altogether ASAP.
Everyone will breathe a huge sigh of relief when it's gone.

There is plenty of healthcare available. It's called the Emergency Room!
If they walk into an Emergency Room then they will receive care.

It is unbelievable that people STILL do not understand what these waivers are for.


I hope it's intentional...because if not...that is just sad.
