Like rats from a sinking ship.
The Obama administration approved 204 new waivers to Democrats’ healthcare reform law over the past month, bringing the total to 1,372.
The waivers are temporary and only apply to one provision of the law, which requires health plans to offer at least $750,000 worth of annual medical benefits before leaving patients to fend for themselves. Still, Republicans have assailed the waivers as a sign of both favoritism and of major problems with the law.
“The fact that over 1,000 waivers have been granted is a tacit admission that the healthcare law is fundamentally flawed,” Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.) said in March. Upton is one of three House committee chairmen who has used new oversight powers to investigate the annual limit waivers.
The former supporters, including the union thugs who pushed for it, are breaking all land speed records running away from this socialist Frankenstein.
Hospitals are going through severe cutbacks, insurance companies are raising their rates, and doctors are refusing new Medicare patients, all in anticipation of the 2014 start of ObamaCare. No one in their right mind wants the government having complete control over their healthcare; rationing, death panels, a decline in quality, and awaiting lists are looming on the horizon.
The GOP is working to defund the train wreck and so far, at least 26 states have filed lawsuits to opt out of ObamaCare.
If all goes well, ObamaCare will be in tatters by 2014.
