Forrest Gump said it best: Sometimes there just aren’t enough rocks:

(CNSNews.com) – The United Federation of Teachers (UFT), the union representing New York City’s public school teachers, is the largest beneficiary of a waiver from one of the provisions in the health-care law signed by President Barack Obama last year.

The UFT is a chapter of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), which spent $1.9 million on the election of President Barack Obama in 2008. The UFT is also an affiliate of the New York State United Teachers, which spent $46,139 in independent expenditures on the election of Obama.

The waiver list is well into the 700′s now and climbing fast.

Before too long the only people who will be mandated to live under the provisions of Obamacare will be those who stood against its passage.

    The same link was given by a commenter at MM`s place , TOO FUNNY !

    What I noticed, aside from the weaselly refusal to answer questions, Dingy the Harry`s security staff and the capital policeman ALL saw NO VIOLENT INTENT or other danger posed by the Republican questioner and made no effort to stop him or restrict him in any way !! Even though the guy was speaking loud enough to be heard all over the store ! The other customers seemed to have loved it !

    I`m betting this story will be missed by the MSWLM since there were so many witnesses to counter any claims of violence on the questioner`s part !
