Happy Birthday to ObamaCare

This piece of "cake" legislation is still around, but hopefully not forever. Here are some interesting recent developments:

Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY), one of ObamaCare's biggest supporters, is now looking into how an ObamaCare wiaver might work for the City of New York. You have to love the irony of that one.

So what's with the ObamaCare waivers, anyway? Well, when it comes to ObamaCare, evidently some people are more equal than others. The Hill reports that some ObamaCare wiaver requests have been approved even as Health and Human Services (HHS) denies others.

So why are some waivers being accepted and others rejected? A group called Crossroads GPS, started by Karl Rove, has been trying to find that out and has been stonewalled by the Obama Administration. Consequently, Crossroads is suing the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) over their failure to comply with the Freedom of Information Act. Stay tuned.

It turns out the CEO of Starbucks is "rethinking" his previous support of ObamaCare. Come to think of it, Howard Schultz says, ObamaCare's employer requirements will impose "too great" a pressure on small businesses. No.Duh. And Howard, it took you a whole YEAR to figure that one out?
