United Federation of Teachers Spends $1.9 Million to Help Pass Obamacare, Gets an Obamacare Waiver

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.
