    ObamaCare waivers....what a bunch of crap

    so ZERO wants to take over 20% of the economy...except of course for Friends & Family



    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.

    Then, there’s Café des Amis, which describes its eating experience as “a timeless Parisian style brasserie” which is “located on one of San Francisco’s premier shopping and strolling boulevards, Union Street,” according to the restaurant’s Web site.

    “Bacchus Management Group, in partnership with Perry Butler, is bringing you that same warm, inviting feeling, with a distinctive San Francisco spin,” the Web site reads. Somehow, though, the San Francisco upper class eatery earned itself a waiver from Obamacare because it apparently cost them too much to meet the law’s first year requirements.

    The reason the Obama administration says it has given out waivers is to exempt certain companies or policyholders from “annual limit requirements.” The applications for the waivers are “reviewed on a case by case basis by department officials who look at a series of factors including whether or not a premium increase is large or if a significant number of enrollees would lose access to their current plan because the coverage would not be offered in the absence of a waiver.” The waivers don’t allow a company to permanently refrain from implementing Obamacare’s stipulations, but companies can reapply for waivers annually through 2014.

    Café Mason, a diner near San Francisco’s Union Square, got a waiver too. When The Daily Caller asked the manager about the waiver and how the president’s new sweeping federal health care law was affecting his restaurant, he hung up the phone. The Franciscan Crab restaurant on Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco got a waiver. Its menu features entrees ranging from about $15 to $60. The Franciscan’s general manager didn’t return TheDC’s requests for comment.

    Four-star hotel Campton Place got one too, as did Hotel Nikko San Francisco, which describes itself as “four-diamond luxury in the heart of the city.” Tru Spa, which Allure Magazine rated the “best day spa in San Francisco,” received an Obamacare waiver as well.

    Before hanging up on TheDC, Tru Spa’s owner said new government health care regulations, both the federal-level Obamacare and new local laws in Northern California, have “devastated” the business. “It’s been bad for us,” he said, without divulging his name, referring to the new health care restrictions.

    But, the spa owner wouldn’t talk about it or the reason his company sought a waiver. He hung up after saying, “I’ve got clients on the other line, good-bye.”

    Does this surprise anyone? Like anything else, the Democrats will use Obamacare as a way of wielding power and getting votes. I think everyone should get a permanent waiver so the plan will be completely dead, which is just what it should be since it does far more harm than good to our healthcare system.

    “The waivers don’t allow a company to permanently refrain from implementing Obamacare’s stipulations, but companies can reapply for waivers annually through 2014.”

    Well, I suspect they will. Waivers are for votes. In the leftist world, votes must be paid for. This waiver stuff has got to be a topic for the coming debates.

    America is engulfed in corruption on a scale that has never been seen in the history of the world. The Fed destroys our currency, and with it our life’s work and savings, in order to continue to bail out the corrupt bankers.

    Obama and his radicals are engaged in the systematic dismantling of our free markets, our ideals, our way of life. The community agitator mocks and ridicules fellow citizens he disagrees with, and out of the other side of his mouth he calls for “civil discourse”. He sends busloads of thugs to Wisconsin to create civil unrest, and calls the citizens of Arizona bigots, declaring that families who went out for ice cream would now be harrassed for their “papers” if they appear to be Hispanic. Such a dispicable lie from our elected President– who got his dispicable ass elected by the same American people he now calls bigots.

    And lest we forget, he said our doctors might needlessly remove tonsils from children and amputate the foot of a diabetic rather than treating the disease-
    and that they would do these things for the money.

    The media is little more than the mouthpiece for the state, having abandoned their responsibilities in order to get Obama elected, and now to get him re-elected.

    The list of offenses against this nation and the liberty of all Americans is far too long to list here. God willing, this menace to freedom will be soundly defeated in November, 2012.

    Obama promised anyone and everyone who would vote for him, that this type of practices, was going to stop under his watch. seems they have only gotten worse.

    Hey, where are all the Libtards around here to preach about how great Obamacare is? C’mon guys, don’t be afraid. Just because all the Dems tried to get their buddies out of having to participate because this thing is such a colossal clusterf@ck, that’s no reason for you all to hide like gutless cowards.

    I am with you, come on tell us how good Obamacide is,

    but before you do, look up the business listed in this article, I did.

    they are far from poor establishments,

    like I said below, I bet they all gave huge campaign donations, in exchange for these waivers. and as I recall, Obama promised anyone and everyone who would vote for him, that this type of practices, was going to stop under his watch. seems they have only gotten worse.

    it is time this whole fiasco was repealed,

    nothing would be better than this .

    nothing surprises me when it comes to Pelosi, absolutely nothing.

    bet if it is fully investigated, they all gave huge campaign donations.

    can you imageine a resturant that is able to get $59.00 for a porterhouse steak, $39.00 for filet mignons, and $35.00 crab dinners, needs to ask for a waiver.

    this is nothing more than kickbacks, and paybacks.

    and Pelosi should be held accountable, she should be made to resign, and yesterday is not soon enough.

    imagine if places like the hotel Nikko, cannot afford Obamacide, how can the middle class.

    whan a shame people like Pelosi, and Obama are to this GREAT NATION.

    anyone who votes for Obama, or still supports Obama, all need their heads examined.
