Officials announced Friday that all applications for new waivers and renewals of existing ones have to be in by Sept. 22.
That would remove a potential political distraction in the 2012 elections.

Um .... obama isn't ending Obamacare waivers.
What is says is that new waivers have to be in by a certain date.
Renewals of the old ones too.
That's not 'ending' waivers. Or did I read that wrong?
There is NO WAY that Obama would end waiver-gate to his political buds. The end of McDonalds waivers would probably mean an end to McDonalds 'bundling' for Obama for 2012. Ditto the teachers unions. etc etc ...
Same deal here, you will be stuck having to Opt into Obamacare if you do not have a waiver.
They won't be needed when the law goes into full effect in 2014, because taxpayer-subsidized insurance will be broadly available.
