Nancy Pelosi's District Opts Out Of Obamacare

Nancy needs to keep prices down at the restaurants her and her friends attend. Do as I say, not as I do. (h/t Lou Pagnucco)

Of the 204 new Obamacare waivers President Barack Obamaís administration approved in April, 38 are for fancy eateries, hip nightclubs and decadent hotels in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosiís Northern California district.

Unions are getting a lot of waivers too.

If our elites just left us alone I wouldn't mind their hypocrisy. But they want to remold us to fit their image of how society should work.

It seems more proper to blame Obama's creators and controllers, rather than their front man.

I doubt he even hires his own ghost writers.

Astonishing that anyone of any political persuasion supports such a regime.

In the meantime, the people who promoted this sham are opting out of it - pretty predictable.

Democrats are building their golden calves out of pyrite nowadays.

Yeah, it is sad to see things like this.

Unfortunately, pork transcends ideology. I'm not even sure if it qualifies as corruption.

For instance, my state (GA) has a major Lockheed-Martin plant. Because of this, both senators Isakson(R) and Chambliss(R) have fought to preserve the F-22 program, despite the current national debt and budget crisis, and despite the fact that the PENTAGON DOESN'T WANT THE PLANES!

Rumsfeld was against the F-22.
Gates is against the F-22.
Obama is against the F-22.
McCain is against the F-22.

But the senators from GA are basically for building as many of them as possible. Of course, this would be no different if GA were a blue state.

I just hope we can get out of this capitalistic crap as soon as possible.

Is the story really about hypocrisy, or is it about pols and bureaucrats having even more discretionary power with which to punish their enemies and reward their friends and financiers? Are there any hard and fast rules which must be obeyed with regard to who gets a waiver and who does not, or is it all pretty random?

WJ,

A distinction without a difference.
