If Obama’s socialized medicine plan is so great why is he granting waivers to his supporters?

 
The question that is going around today is if the socialized medicine plan called Obamacare is such a great thing, then why is Obama granting waivers to all of his supporters?

  1. We have a tendency in America to argue for or against a concept based on our own personal philosophy or view of the world, what advances our personal interests, or the interests of our party, family, organization, or region.
