Well, I am pretty good at the computer, but it took me 20min to find this on a government website:

Approved Applications for Waiver of the Annual Limits Requirements of the PHS Act Section 2711 as of November 1, 2010

(list of companies exempt from Obamcare laws)

Approved Applications for Waiver of the Annual Limits Requirements of the PHS Act Section 2711 as of November 1, 2010



No press release? Why not? Because Obama knows Obamacare will kill jobs and hurt employers so he secretly exempted companies from the HC Law. I hope people can see Obamacare will kill jobs. If it's sooooo great, why would Obama exempt companies from this great Healthcare?

That is what happens if stupid people vote without reading the bill first...now were stuck with most of it and hopefully the most important part that will increase costs, will be repealed!

Why do you thnik that nelson(D) of Nebraska wanted a exemptio to vote yes on the new state cost comjing to fund state huge increase in medicaid spending starting 2017. Because he sadi it woud abnkrupt his stae. Its going to do the same to mnay states as the healthcare bill forces 15 million in medicaid to meeet thier CBO estmates on budget spending.Notice the all then unions got their way in exemtions from income of freee heal;thcare besides foroing members to stay i the union pool.

Did you miss the part about those waivers being temporary, about how those companies are excused because their workers might lose coverage in the interim, about how they will NOT be exempt when the health care reform act is fully implemented?

By the way, I'll admit I missed something too! I missed any reference at all to Obama admitting health care reform will hurt the economy. There is nothing in your comments or in either link to support that statement.

You really should apply for work as a headline writer for Fox or the WND as your style would fit right in at either place.
