Green Room

How Businesses in Pelosi’s District Got Obamacare Waivers

posted at 11:40 am on May 19, 2011 by

After reading Matthew Boyle’s story for the Daily Caller about businesses in Nancy Pelosi’s congressional district that received waivers from Obamacare, I decided to contact a few of the businesses directly and see what they had to say about the process. In my query I identified myself as a blogger but I did not provide a link to my site (Verum Serum) as I anticipated even the business people in San Francisco were likely to be on the far left and might balk after browsing a few headlines.

So I laughed when I received this expectation-confounding response from Pamela at one of the restaurants in question:

Hi John,

We were not aware we received a waiver, nor did we apply for one. We heard about it on the news, just like everyone else. Our management personnel did not respond to inquiries because they, like we, didn’t know what was going on. Through Google we found out our health care administrator (HRA), unbeknownst to us, applied for the waiver for all of their clients, of which we are one.

What we know about the new healthcare program is what our government knows, which I understand is nothing, only a little less.

Sincerely,
Milton Friedman

It wasn’t until the second pass that I caught the signature. Look out, Nancy, there are conservatives in your midst!

Heh, this is both funny and sad at the same time.

Who is their health care administrator?

I want to contract with them.
