Our Lawless President’s Crooked Favor Factory

Michael Barone’s latest column is a masterpiece.

What do the following have in common? Eckert Cold Storage Co., Kerly Homes of Yuma, Classic Party Rentals, West Coast Turf Inc., Ellenbecker Investment Group Inc., Only in San Francisco, Hotel Nikko, International Pacific Halibut Commission, City of Puyallup, Local 485 Health and Welfare Fund, Chicago Plastering Institute Health & Welfare Fund, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee, Teamsters Local 522 Fund Welfare Fund Roofers Division, StayWell Saipan Basic Plan, CIGNA, Caribbean Workers’ Voluntary Employees’ Beneficiary Health and Welfare Plan.

Answer: They are all among the 1,372 businesses, state and local governments, labor unions and insurers, covering 3,095,593 individuals or families, that have been granted a waiver from Obamacare by Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius.

All of which raises another question: If Obamacare is so great, why do so many people want to get out from under it?

That’s actually a phenomenal question, isn’t it?

After all, the Republicans say that Obamacare is a disaster while Democrats say it’s the best thing since the cell phone. So, when every business in the country seems to be dying to get a waiver from Obamacare, what does that tell you about who’s telling the truth?

Moreover, what does this information tell you about how honest Barack Obama is when it comes to evenly applying the law?

More specifically, why are more than half of those 3,095,593 in plans run by labor unions, which were among Obamacare’s biggest political supporters? Union members are only 12 percent of all employees but have gotten 50.3 percent of Obamacare waivers.

Just in April, Sebelius granted 38 waivers to restaurants, nightclubs, spas and hotels in former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco congressional district. Pelosi’s office said she had nothing to do with it.

In other words, Barack Obama forced a disastrous health care plan on the American people, then he handed out exemptions to his political allies to spare them the negative ramifications of the hot mess he forced on the rest of the country. It’s the old Animal Farm rule, “All animals are equal, But some animals are more equal than others.” Who are the animals who’re “more equal than others” in Barack Obama’s America? The ones who give money to the Democratic Party.
