The Waiver State

by Yuval Levin
Be sure to read Mona’s column today on the immense potential for abuse inherent in the Obamacare waivers. It’s amply backed up by this great bit of reporting by the Daily Caller’s Matthew Boyle this morning:
Of the 204 new Obamacare waivers President Barack Obama’s administration approved in April, 38 are for fancy eateries, hip nightclubs and decadent hotels in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s Northern California district. That’s in addition to the 27 new waivers for health care or drug companies and the 31 new union waivers Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services approved.
Welcome to the future. I hope you know the right people.
