National Healthcare Takeover Produces More Backroom Deals

Republicans are speaking out against the Obama administration and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in response to a Daily Caller article reporting that 19% of recently issued federal health takeover reform law waivers went to businesses in Pelosi’s district, The Hill‘s “Healthwatch” reports.

According to the Daily Caller article, 38 of the 204 new waivers went to businesses located in Pelosi’s San Francisco-area district.

The article prompted criticism from Republican leaders, who suggested that the Obama administration was practicing favoritism by granting a substantial number of health reform waivers to Pelosi’s constituents.

Michael Steel — spokesperson for House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) — said, “It looks like ObamaCare’s backroom sweetheart deals didn’t end when it became law.”
