Nevada secures partial waiver from federal health care law

Nevada got a partial waiver from the health care law — a significant development that Democrats are dismissing as par for the course and Republicans are claiming as a political victory.

The Health and Human Services Department announced late Friday that Nevada had secured a statewide waiver from certain implementation requirements of the Obama administration’s health care law, because forcing them through, the department found, “may lead to the destabilization of the individual market.”

The announcement makes Nevada one of only three states to have compliance requirements under the health care bill waived.

    Wait a minute – this was supposed to be the best thing since sliced bread – why all the waivers??? WTF???? This we can’t be quiet about and let them get away with – ridiculous -too, I thought there were a finite amount of waivers and since they seem to be popping up all over the place, why not just grant the entire country a waiver in the form of repeal???

    I am completely OUTRAGED! Besides all these Obamacare waivers by Pelosi, today REID EXEMPTED THE ENTIRE STATE OF NEVADA. THIS….from the two biggest JERKS in congress who shoved Obamacare down our throats! It’s time for some hangings in the town square of San Francisco and “somewhere in NV”. THERE IS NO WAY I AM GOING TO ACCEPT THIS, THAT MY STATE PAYS WHILE NEVADA AND SAN FRANCISCO AND MCDONALDS ARE EXEMPTED. PEOPLE, IT’S TIME FOR THE FROGS TO GET OUT OF THE POT!

    This blatant violation of the 14th “equal protection” amendment will be the fig leaf used by SCOTUS to rule Obamascare unconstitutional, as they note the nation’s outrage at this typically corrupt Dem behavior. Remember in 2012!

    both Pelosi and Reid have amazingly gotten waivers from what they claim to be such a great deal for the AMERICAN PUBLIC, if it is so great, why do they get waivers.

    answer, because they know what it really contains.

    and waivers equal huge campaign donations.
