On the Health & Human Services website, there are currently 111 companies and organizations receiving temporary waivers from the glorious health care law that everybody loves. The labor unions, such as Local 25 SEIU and their 31,000 enrollees, are the most maddening. The same organization that helped ram through the law is seeking shelter from it while everybody else is subject to the idiocy.

Want a waiver? Here’s the process for obtaining one (PDF). Your application will ironically be moved to the top of the pile if you helped lobby through the law you’re now trying to dodge.

Right now there are 1,175,411 people being covered by a temporary exemption from Obamacare, a law that South Carolina Rep. Clyburn referred to as “the Civil Rights Act of the 21st century.” Uh huh… and how many people applied for exemptions from the Civil Rights Act, Rep. Clyburn?

Michelle Malkin asks:

Also on the list: Dish Networks and more. At this point, the better question is: Who won’t be on the list after the Obamacare central planners fully acknowledge the destructive consequences of their schemes?

If this law actually had anything to do with affordability and quality health care, even its authors would be scrambling to repeal it and start over — the fact that nobody on the left is doing that provides the best evidence that the “Affordable Health Care” act has nothing to do with affordability or health care. The people at the lucrative end of the scam are getting their goodies — what happens to the rest of us is irrelevant to them.

    Obamacare = Civil Rights? Color me confused, because my understanding of Obamacare had nothing to do with civil rights, and my understanding of the Civil Rights Act had nothing to do affordable health care.

    Oh, maybe this is what the Dems meant when they said we little peons were incapable of understanding it! Ya think?

    This is the same SCREW the American people cram-down legislation that has given "We The People" The Federal Reserve, the IRS, Social Security (Non-Transferable PONZI scheme), and Medicare. All championed and authored by the parasitical left.

    Isn't there something in our Constitution about laws needing to apply to everybody equally in this country? Or was that just wishful thinking on my part? Laws in this country under Obama are enforced unequally and with prejudice – if you are among the groups he favors, you can get exempt from anything, whether it's Obamacare or our election laws (like the new black panthers), or TSA screening rules (with the people statistically likely to try to hijack or blow up a plane being given a free pass from having their naked bodies on an airport monitor or their private regions violated by security flunkies like the rest of us do).

    Many or most of the waivered orgs. worked toward or gave piles of money for dem. elections; is it wrong to bet these waivers come with strings ! You know how it is, you`ll always owe the mob ! I`d rather lock my shop doors than let them get their hooks in me !

    Please, everyone call and remind your representatives -exactly- as you have worded above. Ver batim, change nothing. A form-letter petition would be even better. This isn't rocket science. Something about "equal protection under the law"?

    And where's the outrage from the Left? I thought they were all about "social justice" and… fairness and whatnot? Yeah, right, they're about control. Where conservatives get it all wrong is our complete inability to "shape-shift" w/ total ease as do our Liberal counterparts.

    Why… they can slam gears from courteous PTA Mom turned Bill Ayers in a heartbeat! We… ( otoh ) know what we know, believe what we believe and share those basic, core values in simple straightforward language. ( Read easy target )

    Guys, forget the "Queensbury Rules" already fer' chrissakes! Find the skillsets to shift from "docker wearing suburban Dad" to "Kill 'em all and let GOD sort 'em out" in the same sentnce!

    That's a great observation. In fact, let's call it:

    "Deferment 2010!" Oh, but the rest of 'you' ( your daddy didn't have any clout w/ the Nobama Health Draft Board so brace yourself for some REST! )

    "whoopee we're all gonna' die" indeed.
