Who is Exempt from Obamacare?
Should one group of Americans receive an exemption from the higher premiums, mandates penalties, and taxes caused by the requirements of Obamacare? Obamacare was passed through secret deals and exemptions promised to certain groups. Ironically, those who made this law exempt themselves. Obama, congress, and their staffers all received special exemptions. Obamacare also provides “hardship exemptions” for American Indians, Armish, Christian Scientists, and Muslims. According to politifact, over 1,000 businesses and unions have also received exemptions from Obamacare.

So why should about 4 million people, or 3% of America, get an exemption from Obamacare, while the rest of America must abide by the requirements, regulations, penalties, fines, and taxes created by Obamacare? No one seems to like Obamacare. Even Obama, the Democrats, and those who supported Obamacare, have found exemptions to avoid Obamacare, while the rest of America is forced to take it. If Obamacare is so good, then those who created it should be forced to use it, while the rest of America should be provided an exemption.
