Obama Admin: "OK, Obamacare is flawed. But Only Unions and Connected People Can Get Out of It"

That is essentially what the administration said when they allowed 111 companies and UNIONS to opt out of Obamacare by being granted waivers. I mean, many of these companies and unions lobbied for Obamacare, so why would they want out of it? Answer: IT IS FATALLY FLAWED. YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO KEEP YOUR COVERAGE. BARRY LIED, CONGRESS SCREWED UP. But too bad for you, small business owner or individual who isn't connected, you are stuck. Only the connected or the union bloc can be exempted. Here is the top ten list of those exempted, and you can check out the full list of those exempted here.

So, Obama is doing what he has always done--the Chicago Way--paying off those who have helped him and sticking the screws to the rest of us. The fact that these unions and many of the companies involved as well, lobbied for Obamacare and are now opting out should tell us that this law is not only an abomination, but a de facto act of discrimination against those not in unions or not powerful. Funny, I thought the dems were for the little guy. Guess not, because they can't pay. Here is a sampling of some of the unions opting out after telling everyone how great Obamacare would be:
B.E.S.T of NY
Service Employees Benefit Fund
UFCW Allied Trade Health & Welfare Trust
IBEW No.915
Asbestos Workers Local 53 Welfare Fund
Employees Security Fund
Plumbers & Pipefitters Local 123 Welfare Fund
UFCW Local 227
UFCW Maximus Local 455
Local 25 SEIU
UFCW Local 1262
Local 802 Musicians Health Fund
Local 17 Hospitality Benefit Fund
UFT Welfare Fund

All told, about 1,175,411 are privileged enough to be allowed to opt out. Guess this was never about social or any other justice, but rather JUST US.
