What a coincidence

Naked favoritism such as this is precisely why placing everyone's health care under the direct control of partisan politicians is such a bad idea: 

"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.

Pelosi’s district secured almost 20 percent of the latest issuance of waivers nationwide, and the companies that won them didn’t have much in common with companies throughout the rest of the country that have received Obamacare waivers."

Orwell was correct - some animals are indeed more equal than others, especially when it comes to back-scratching cronyism amongst the pigs who currently run things in Washington.

Have you been to Northern Cali? Fancy eateries, hip clubs and decadent hotels are few and far between...
