The list of most recently approved refugees is here. Make no mistake: Team Obama isn’t granting the waivers out of bleeding-heart compassion for the affected workers, but out of a panicked urgency to avoid a public relations disaster.As I’ve boiled it down before:Old Democrat promise: Everyone gets to keep their health insurance.New Democrat promise: You can keep your health insurance…if you BEG hard enough for an Obamacare waiver.Yep: The only way for hundreds of thousands of workers to keep their health insurance is to exempt them from the government-imposed “fix.”
Jim Hoft notices that a bunch of major unions are on the waiver list, including SEIU. We're up to 111 waivers and counting. Wouldn't it be easier to make ObamaCare opt-in only?
