So, the White House has handed out 111 waivers for Obamacare. Basically, it means that the healthcare plans offered by those companies or organizations do not need to meet the requirements laid out in the bill. Below are a few of the waiver recipients. #12β UFCW Allied Trade Health & Welfare Trust #14β IBEW No.915 #19β Asbestos Workers Local 53 Welfare Fund #33β Plumbers & Pipefitters Local 123 Welfare Fund #35β UFCW Local 227 #52β UFCW Maximus Local 455 #55β Local 25 SEIU #60β UFCW Local 1262 #78β Local 802 Musicians Health Fund #83β Local 17 Hospitality Benefit Fund #89β International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT) #91β Transport Workers #92β UFT Welfare Fund (United Federation of Teachers) All of those are unions that actively stumped for the bill. It would seem to be hypocritical to ask for a waiver, no? Maybe holydiver or MrsPats could explain it.
