If you would like to know what the White House really thinks of Obamacare, there’s an easy way. Look past its press releases. Ignore its promises. Forget its talking points. Instead, simply witness for yourself the outrageous way the White House protects its best friends from Obamacare.

Last year, we learned that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) had granted 111 waivers to protect a lucky few from the onerous regulations of the new national health care overhaul. That number quickly and quietly climbed to 222, and last week we learned that the number of Obamacare privileged escapes has skyrocketed to 733.

I did a quick "eyeball" tally based on name only (IE some could be union plans and not included in my totals). Of the 733 waivers granted, 182 (25%) are union plans representing 975,335 (45%) of the 2.2 million insureds. A large number are municipalities which I suspect are union as well.

Dr. Milton R. Wolf is a board-certified diagnostic radiologist, medical director and cousin of President Obama. He blogs daily at miltonwolf.com.

I find it funny that they point out he is a cousin to Obama.

If you read his bio, his mother and Obama's mom were first cousins... making him and the prez 2nd cousins... Nothing unusual about that.

I agree nothing unusual, I just don't know why it has to be pointed out that he is related to him, as if that somehow makes his opinion better or worse.

I would think you were smarter if you told me you were related to a Nobel Peace Prize winner.
