Nice piece in the WSJ about the mess that is ObamaCare. And the very first item in a very long list of the law’s complaints and injuries is this one:
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has handed out nearly 1,000 waivers to allow select companies, unions and states to escape, at least temporarily, some of the burdensome new insurance rules she has created. This is a continuation of the trend of the “Cornhusker Kickback” and the “Louisiana Purchase” that Senate Democrats used to get the law passed in the first place, and that so disgusted the American people.
Isn’t there an Equal Protections case to be made against ObamaCare? When the HHS director gets to pick and choose winners and losers at whim, I’d say the law makes a mockery of the 14th Amendment. There might even be a Due Process problem here.
Or am I totally off-base on this one?
