Terrorist groups pushing for this and -- -- -- group to bail out of it.
More than a million union members getting exemptions from the health care law my next -- trying to help other taxpayers get waivers.
Colin Hanna where's my wayward dot com joins me now come on now let's let's just as far as set this up for the viewer because I've been reporting on the story.
What the White House is telling me is -- sense that they need to give these waivers temporarily.
Before the health insurance exchanges kick in and 2014.
Because the threat is is that these union groups and companies like McDonald's we'll just drop these very low budget she plans and these workers will have no health care coverage.
So how does this square with what you're hearing.
Well there are lots of reasons that people are seeking waivers.
I think the most ironic thing of all is that so many of the waiver soft so far.
Have been sought from his constituencies that supported the president when he was first.
Proposing what we now know as Obama care.
So there's a kind of -- hypocrisy in addition to the question of corruption about this sort of insider Powell relationship about who's getting these waivers and who isn't.
And that's what we tried to expose with where's my waiver dot com.
Providing a means for ordinary citizens to say wait a minute if all of -- supporters of Obama care are requesting waivers.
Where's my waiver I won't want to be and it provided a means.
They can send an email from the site directly to secretary Sebelius and that's is a slick little operation.
Those insisting so you know essentially felt firmer so great why does everyone bottom get a waiver to bail out of that.
So you know here's the thing and when we talk about that the granting of these waivers by the way that think there was a provision in the health reform bill that they would allow them to do this.
Calling the shots behind the scenes because you know with the help they Nixon administration telling me they actually deny -- -- -- for fifty groups that they won't name the names.
That's correct they have not been forthcoming with Freedom of Information Act.
Which I think itself adds yet another cloud over this.
We don't make the charge that they are necessarily corrupt we simply raise the question.
About -- if it was done fairly aren't they willing to say the process by which it was done there's also a constitutional question here -- it may well be.
That the -- it does not in fact empower secretary Sebelius to offer these waivers the waivers themselves may be given to insiders.
With out actual proper congressional or constitutional authority to do so.
That's interesting -- Colin here's a here's a question I have for you.
Basically the unions are saying we supported health reform.
But now in the interim we need this waiver is -- your sense -- these unions have threatened to drop their workers if they don't get the waiver.
I've not heard that that would be truly beyond the -- -- and drop them from the help from their own health plan.
Well I think the whole purpose that behind what we're doing is to show how many people are just sickened by the hypocrisy.
And the corruption in this process by the overbearing bureaucratic weight.
That makes it so cumbersome.
That even its supporters are now seeking relief from the ads that -- -- Chrissie were trying to focus on there's also -- hysterically funny video on the site.
Some of the hypocrisy from congressman Anthony Weiner where we have somebody Stephen Crowder -- a great web video guy.
-- interviews a -- -- not truly congressman -- but -- hot dog -- and has a wonderful little exchange with him about this and then.
Ends with a with a little ditty taken from a once familiar.
Theme song for for one of the hot dog company so that's worth watching on where's my measured selling well -- -- The they're major selling point yet you did it.
-- marketing it -- -- B Anthony Weiner.
But certain it was so good to be you do tonight we're really appreciate your time -- I'm gonna go check -- aside by the way how many people have signed up.
We -- about 7500 so far who it just started so well good luck to come under Collins said that to be with you tonight sir thank.
