The Number Of Waivers For Obamacare Climbs Dramatically

I reported on Tuesday ( that 222 business, unions, organizations, etc., had been granted waivers from Obamacare.  Well, Hot Air reported yesterday that the number has grown to 729 through the end of December. 

The article reports:

“I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to suggest that OCIIO (Office of Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight) was asked to hold this development until after the SOTU. Indeed the latest waiver approved in the list is from December 30th. There is an addendum at the bottom of the page noting that four states-Massachusetts, New Jersey, Ohio, and Tennessee-have applied for waivers covering another 93,000 people. The addendum is dated 1/21/11, but I can assure you it was not there on 1/21 or even Monday.”

If Obamacare is so great, why do we have waivers covering 2.2 million people?  Why are these people getting waivers?  Why aren’t you and I getting waivers?
