Hi-Larious....Massachusetts Wants Waiver From ObamaCare

Popcorn.

Push back in the compliance effort is coming from an unexpected source, the senior Democratic budget writer in the State Senate, Senator Stephen Brewer, presumably with support from the Senate President as well. The amendment that was filed would force President Obama’s good friend Governor Deval Patrick (D), and his Administration, to seek a waiver from certain elements of Obamacare. The move could come to a head if the provision lands on the Governor’s desk, resulting in an embarrassing political moment for the Obama Administration since the ACA is forcing significant changes to a state law they claim acted as a model in Washington.

Keep in mind, thanks to RomneyCare Mass already has some of the highest insurance premiums in the nation.

Related(ish)- A Democrat pretending to be a Republican lost the special election to fill John Kerry's Senate term. One of his aides complains that the anti-conservative wing of the party didn't show up to help.

Personally I'm glad he lost. I'm all for RINOs if they help get the majority but this wasn't going to flip control of the Senate and even if he'd won, he'd have to run next year and would lose again.

If someone is going to vote straight Democrat, he might as well be a Democrat.
