Oscar, huge numbers exempt specifically in Pelosi and Reid districts. Just a coincidence.
What was the percentage expempted in their districts vs. Boehners and McConnell's?

Saying a huge number was exempted some place is meaningless unless you have something to compare it to.

Skipped around my question, but don't. How many waivers were denied as a percentage of waivers granted?
Out of all the waivers granted, how many were permanent instead of temporary?
These two questions and their answer do a lot to determine if you have a valid complaint or not.
The most transparent administration ever has not made public a list of who was denied, so that question can't be answered. Do you have the info?

"Altogether, the Obama administration has granted 1372 waivers and has denied about 100 requests."

And even the 100 that were denied could have been resubmitted and approved.

Selective implies there was political shanangans going on. How many waivers were disapproved out of how many applied for?
And further, "selective enforcement" doesn't IMPLY anything. If you want a waiver, you apply for one. If they give you one, they have decided that their new law doesn't apply to you.

Some Real Facts About Mitt Romney That We Will Not Hear About From The Media!

Mitt Romney:

After going to both Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School simultaneously, he
passed the Michigan bar, but never worked as an attorney.

As a venture-capitalist, Romney's first major business deal involved investing in a start-up
office supply company with one store in Massachusetts that sold office supplies. That
company, called Staples, now has over 2,000 stores and employs over 90,000 people.

Romney or his company Bain Capital (using what became known as the "Bain Way") would
go on to perform the same kinds of business miracles again and again, with companies like
Domino's, Sealy, Brookstone, Weather Channel, Burger King, Warner Music Group, Dollarama,
Home Depot Supply, and many others.

Got your calculators handy? Let's recap.

Volunteer campaign worker for his dad's gubernatorial campaign 1 year.

Unpaid intern in Governor's office 8 years.

Mormon missionary in Paris 2 years.

Unpaid bishop and state president for his church 10 years.

No salary as president of the Olympics 3 years.

No salary as MA governor 4 years.

That's a grand total of 28 years of unpaid service to his country, his community and his church.

And in 2011 Mitt Romney gave over $4 million to charity, almost 19% of his income....Obama gave 1%

Joe Biden gave $300 or .0013%

This is real character vs..well you know whom!

At least we know what religion he is, for sure where he was born, who he has associated with and
that he won't bow down to foreign powers, or squander my money on white house parties and
lavish vacations. We know he has the ability to turn this financial debacle that the “Hope and Change”
guy has failed to get us out of. All he can do well is campaign. We won’t like all the things necessary
to recover from this debt, but someone with Romney’s background can do it.

But, on the minus side, He never had valuable experience as a "Community Organizer", never took
drugs or smoked pot. Never got drunk. Did not associate with communists or terrorists. Nor did he
attend a church whose pastor called for God to damn the US.

26 U. S. C. Section 5000A(d)- just as I previously cited. The mandate does not apply to some individuals, such as prisoners and undocumented aliens.

The exemption appears on pp. 147-148 of the link you posted - showing you don't even read your own links before posting!

(d) APPLICABLE INDIVIDUAL.—For purposes of this section—
(1) IN GENERAL.—The term ‘applicable individual’ means,
with respect to any month, an individual other than an individual
described in paragraph (2),(3), or (4).
...
(3) INDIVIDUALS NOT LAWFULLY PRESENT.—Such term
shall not include an individual for any month if for the month
the individual is not a citizen or national of the United States

Exactly. The nation desperately NEEDED reductions in the COST of healthcare.

What they got rammed down their throat by the Pelosi-Reid progressive axis was a vast EXPANSION of federal meddling, intrusion, and bureaucracy and unaffordable benefits - the cost of which is shifted onto the backs of others.

Because these days... actions, results, truth do not matter to the majority of the people in this country. The only thing that matters is the D or the R next to the crooked politician's name. What they actually do does not matter a lick to most people anymore.

Most people have just become conditioned to hate the other party, and pay almost no attention to what their party does. Obama the President has been the exact opposite of Obama the candidate, and most of his policies have been a disaster. Do the liberals care? No. Too busy claiming that the republicans are the one's causing the problem, Issa is running a witch hunt, fox news lies, Limbaugh hates (group du jour), and of course BUSH!!!!

Republicans are no better. They stood by cheering as he wiped his azz with the Constitution and acted a fool for 8 years.

The good news? These two administrations have been so unbelievably bad that people are starting to wake up. Not many people around here, ha ha, but a lot of Americans out there are upset and want Liberty and freedom restored.

Spread the word & we might get our Republic back.

The best part of all this is that the Dems are in a Catch-22 situation. If they keep claiming that it is not a tax,then they will find themselves in the position of defending an unconstitutional law. The first time someone has to pay the "not a tax," they will be right back in court for levying an unconstitutional fine. If they go along with the court, then they must defend themselves as having foisted the largest tax increase upon this nation since Social Security. It is almost humorous to watch the squirming going on.
it is unbelievable now seeing pelosi, schumer and the rest of the democrats calling this a penalty after Obama's own lawyers claimed it was a tax in court.

just lying through their teeth,

that is what the democratic party is all about,

lies and deceit,

kickbacks and payoffs.

In adition, if you are correct the waiver would be permanent, correct? And if you want to debate that point, how are applications going this year?

I realize that you're not going to get it... because you don't want to get it. But here goes anyway:

Through this waiver process, they are SELECTING who the law applies to and who the law does not apply to.

BY DEFINITION that is selective enforcement of the law.

Here is what I have in Section 5

"TITLE V—HEALTH CARE WORKFORCE
Subtitle A—Purpose and Definitions
SEC. 5001. PURPOSE."

has nothing to do with illegal immigrants.

And your point I suppose is that we should cover illegal immigrants?

what the nation desparately needed was an expansion to cover all citizens. But it is nice to see you call Romney's plan a failure.

LMAO@U. You are beating me up for saying we should not be providing healthcare to illegal aliens? Your full of your normal manure.

Nice to see you think they should be included in the healthcare bill.

You were the one that said Section 5000. Not me. I looked where you indicated. Your the joke......like most Republicans.

God, you guys are tedious. On and on, with the carping and belittling and criticism and anger. Offer something positive, like how can the law be improved. There are a lot of really good things in there. Stuff many Americans need, desperately. Why not lighten up and offer suggestions for improvement?

BS, through the waiver process they are granting additional time to those who have special circumstances to comply with the law.

Tell me any waiver approved for a union that was a permanent, you can always keep it, waiver from complying with the law. And you know we are not talking about the union of Catholic priests.

So is it the law does not apply or is it you need additional time.

Actually, not necessarilly. If they have set, objective criteria and they use that criteria consistantly it would not be considered selective enforcement.
