According to documents released Friday from the government, eight times as many union workers have received waivers to ObamaCare as those in the private sector.

Over 540 thousand union or union affiliated workers have been granted waivers, or exceptions, from ObamaCare since the Feds tightened the rules for application last summer.  By contrast, just over 69 thousand private sector workers have been given a pass.  The Department of Health and Human Services information shows the waivers granted are for two and a half years.    Unions by and large were big supporters of not only Obama in his election, but helped push through the Obama Care plan…yet, now, nearly half a million union workers are exempt–at least temporarily–from the bill’s provisions
