    Nearly 20 percent of new Obamacare waivers are..... fancy hotels in Nancy Pelosiís di

    Nearly 20 percent of new Obamacare waivers are gourmet restaurants, nightclubs, fancy hotels in Nancy Pelosiís district

    Read more: Health Care Law | San Francisco | Nancy Pelosi | The Daily Caller


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

    Thatís in addition to the 27 new waivers for health care or drug companies and the 31 new union waivers Obamaís Department of Health and Human Services approved.

    Pelosiís district secured almost 20 percent of the latest issuance of waivers nationwide, and the companies that won them didnít have much in common with companies throughout the rest of the country that have received Obamacare waivers.


    Wow... One would think that this would be the last place that would want waivers from this glorious Obamacare.

    Proof that even democrats like tossing the salad of businesses. I wonder if anyone is going to try to defend her on this.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    This really makes one wonder what or who you have to do to get this break.

    I saw a news report that one of these places has a Porterhouse steak the sell for $59.

    Get the hell out of town.

    This is payoffs in the openness and transparency Obama style.

    Yes, the Daily Caller made it look bad by misreprsenting the facts. Here now is actually why more waivers went to the San Francisco area:

    "WASHINGTON -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) played no role in the process by which health care waivers were granted to a number of businesses in her district, according to the company that actually requested the waivers on behalf of its clients.

    Flex-Plan Services, a third-party benefits administrator based in Bellevue, Wash., made the formal applications for waivers from President Barack Obama's health care law, said it founder, Hilarie Aitken.

    "I don’t tend to vote Democratic, but I feel bad for Nancy Pelosi," Aitken told HuffPost. "She’s really being thrown under the bus here. It has nothing to do with her at all. This was just a political power play. The way that they are shaping this -- that the minority leader, Nancy Pelosi, [is behind] all these waivers being granted, and how could she do this -- it’s all slanted and wrong".

    The admission deals a blow to the implication made Tuesday morning by the Daily Caller: It claimed Democratic lawmakers were effectively exempting businesses in their districts from the more onerous requirements of the presidential health care law. This was based on the fact that, of the 204 waiver requests that were approved in April, 38 were for restaurants, nightclubs or hotels in Pelosi's district.

    “It looks like ObamaCare’s backroom sweetheart deals didn’t end when it became law,” said Michael Steel, the spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), in a second Daily Caller story.

    In actuality, Aitken explained, the high percentage of waivers is the byproduct of local law rubbing against the new national legislation. In April 2008, San Francisco passed an ordinance requiring employers to spend a minimum amount per hour on health care for their employees who work in the city. In response, a number of eateries chose to set up Health Reimbursement Arrangements, which are essentially pools of funds set aside by employers to reimburse medical expenses paid by employees.

    HRAs are serviced by a third-party administrator or plan service provider. They are also subject to the annual limit provision in the national health care law, which is set at $750,000 in 2011 before it is eliminated fully in 2014."

    And this surprises anyone how? This is SOP for the DC "Do as I say not as I do" crowd.
