    McDonalds got a break Thursday -- as did the 351,000 members of the United Federation of Teachers -- when the federal gave waivers to high-profile companies and organizations letting them opt out of a key mandate in the new health care law.

    I have been willing to go along with Obama but if this healthcare turns into a cluster fuck he can count on being a one term president.

    Only part of the story is told for better dramatic effect. Anyway it's a temporary waiver that will only be available until 2014 at which time insurance exchanges become available. Why is total disclosure frowned upon? :rolleyes:

    The waivers will be available only until 2014. At that time, because of provisions of the health-care reform law, health insurance exchanges will be established in which individuals will be able to shop for comprehensive insurance plans with government subsidies. Before that transformation takes place, new rules applied to the current system require the government to show flexibility in some cases.

    McDonald's one of 30 companies to get more time
