773 Obamacare waivers...and counting
In August, 2009, as he was extolling the virtues of his proposed Obamacare, President Barack Obama (D) famously promised "If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan." And if you're a union member you certainly can; if you're not, well...
The Health and Human Services site Helping Americans Keep the Coverage They Have and Promoting Transparency (sic) conveniently lists the 773 waivers approved to date. Scroll through the list; notice that most of the waivers, more than 650 went to unions exempting well over 2 million employees.
And for the millions of other workers who like their health care plan and want to keep their health care plan?
The site also helpfully provides links on how to get one. Go! Lots of luck! You're going to need it.
