Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

Democrats filled their 2000-page healthcare bill — rammed into law despite growing and vehement public opposition — with obscure but costly mandates. As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi confessed, Congress would have to pass the bill before we could learn what they were. After all, who, including congressmen, had time to actually read and assimilate the monstrosity?

Choke down first, chew later. That was the ordained (if unhealthy) order of things.

Now we suffer the consequences — at least insofar as we can’t wheedle special exemptions, loopholes, workarounds.

One provision of the new law boosts the minimum annual benefit that companies must include in low-cost medical insurance plans given to low-wage employees. Many large employers contend that the new costs would force them to drop many employees from their insurance rolls. (So much for the Obama lie that “if you like the insurance coverage you have now,” you’d be able to keep it under Obamacare.)

Federal officials have blinked on this issue. The Department of Health and Human Services and Disservices is now granting waivers to many organizations so that their workers can retain coverage. McDonald’s and a New York teachers union are among the employers receiving the waivers.

This is such a great idea, let’s expand it! Give waivers to everybody for all the tyrannical provisions of the new law.

What the heck, distribute waivers for every single tyrannical mandate that governments have ever imposed on us.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

    This is government by fiat, or by the whim of Ms. Sebelies, and by extention, by the whim of Presbo. An imperialist kingdom where companies live and die according to whim. Just as, with the presidential assassination list, individual Americans do.
    We already fought one revolution to get rid of this kind of government.
    Apologies to Mr. Franklin. We had a republic, but were not able to keep it.

    Here Obamacare is passed and now the law of the land and it’s incorporated hazards include overwhelming costs to low cost medical insurance plans given to low wage employees. So most large scale employers were gearing up to drop said employees.

    Guess what? Because such droppage would displease her highness, Health and Human Services Secretary Katherin Sebelius, she can deign to dispense a royal waiver to allow such companies to totally dispense with the royal decree of Obamacare, just as if it didn’t exist.

    You may kiss her ring.

    D’ja ever stop to think that maybe they REALLY don’t know what they are doing and are just making it up as they go along?
