George Washington speaks up against ObamaCare Exemptions

As the Department of Health and Human Services grants another exemption to part of Obamacare, this time to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), I am reminded of what George Washington said:

Tranquillity reigns among the people, with that disposition towards the general government, which is likely to preserve it. They begin to feel the good effects of equal laws and equal protection.

Until we return to a system of “equal laws and equal protection,” there will be no tranquility among the people and the people will not have a positive disposition towards government.

If Obamacare is so great, why all the exemptions?

According to the latest report:

HHS posted 126 new waivers on Friday, bringing the total to 1,040 organizations that have been granted a one-year exemption from a new coverage requirement included in the healthcare reform law enacted almost a year ago.

About 2.6 million people are covered by the waivers, representing less than 2 percent of privately insured individuals, according to HHS.

With 2.6 million people now exempt from Obamacare, we are are getting close to my goal of 300 million exemptions.
