    Has this thread died for some reason? Did I write something bad?

    oh. it's just a coincidence then?

    As for complainin that some get to bypass the law, these waivers were written in to the law so that businesses and health insurance companies that need more time to comply could get some extra time. That's a good thing. This is just conservatives complaining for the purpose of complaining.
    no, it's us pointing out that the actions of the leadership here belies their claims.

    Lets just say that you were in Sebellius's shoes. The law was passed. You can't stop it from being implemented so you have to factor out any distaste for the bill that you might have.
    you have any evidence that Sebellius has distaste for this bill? Or that she doesn't think it is a benefit to the economy and our healthcare system?

    If there are businesses coming o you and applying for waivers that are part of the bill anyways, and they are saying that if they don't get this one year waiver they would have a hard time switching everything over or finding a new plan would you rather destabilize some businesses or would you just give them a waiver which was written in to this bill just for this reason?
    me personally I would apply the same standard to everyone. Either everyone that wants one get's a waiver - businesses and individuals - or no one does. that's sort of what we mean by equal treatment under the law.

    That would only apply to state government workers. Texas cannot legally keep me from Obamacare.

    That's a very good point. Everyone should be applied to the same standard. Could you find me one request that was turned down but should have qualified or one request that was accepted and should have been turned down? So far I have seen no evidence of favoritism or crony-ism other than conservatives whining that there's alot of them. This was written into the bill with the expressed purpose of giving those who need more time the time needed. It seems to be working just as planned.

    Until i see any evidence that Pelosi or whoever has turned down people that should have qualified or have accepted people that didn't qualify your opinion in the matter really means nothing.
