    Obamacare Cheerleader AARP Receives Obamacare Waiver

    When President Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid saw to the passage of ObamaCare in March 2010, they feigned excitement over the supposed benefits that were to befall the American people. As time passed following the law’s passage, however, it became evident that the law was not all it was touted to be, and a massive amount of waivers were handed out to those well-connected enough to secure them from the Obama administration. The latest group to receive a waiver is a company that was ironically one of the biggest cheerleaders of the healthcare legislation at the time of its passage: the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP).

    According to the Department of Health and Human Services, “Medigap” policy providers will be exempt from oversight when they increase payment rates for supplemental insurance plans. The Daily Caller explains:

    Insurance providers who aren’t exempt from Obamacare’s rate review rules are required to publicly release and explain some healthcare payment rate increases. The AARP is the nation’s biggest seller of Medigap policies, or supplemental healthcare plans that add onto what Medicare won’t cover for seniors. The senior citizens interest group advocated for Obamacare to include an attack on Medigap policies’ biggest competitor, Medicare Advantage.

    One more thing to add........




    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.

    As a STRONG supporter of social healthcare, I haven't seen a proposal I liked in . . . something like 2 years.

    Social healthcare for the sake of it is stupid.

    Man if only the GOP had someone electable to put out there in 2012. I've never seen an administration give so much ammunition to the opposition as this one does. For every one 'OK' thing they do, they do five incredibly stupid things. Obama is going to get hammered on this bloated carcass of law in 2012.
    Insert pithy saying here.

    I'll requalify my statement.

    I've never seen an administration that was run by a supposedly "intellectual" guy give so much ammunition to the opposition as this one does.

    I don't think anyone would describe Bush as "intellectual".
