We have been following the growing number of waivers granted by the Department of Health and Human Services to corporations, insurance companies and unions from the provisions of Obamacare. In fact, we posted one article about that yesterday. So periodically I visit the HHS web page devoted to that issue. On my most recent visit, I learned that we are now up to 733 entities that have been granted waivers, affecting some 2.1 million insureds.
But, what I didn’t notice until today, was the title of this HHS web page. It is called “Helping Americans Keep the Coverage They Have and Promoting Transparency”. (Hang in there folks. At least for me, it takes forever for this page to download.)
Let me see if I have this right. To date, Obamacare has made it impossible for some 733 entities and 2.1 million insureds to keep the coverage they have. So, HHS, under Obamacare, has established a division, or section or subsection, or whatever, to “help” those people keep the insurance they had before Obamacare was passed. Did I miss anything?
Here’s an idea.
Let’s eliminate the middleman, a/k/a the Department of Health and Human Services. Repeal Obamacare, and, at least on this score, problem solved.
