Too Big To Heal

Here's a story outrageous eight ways to Sunday. McDonald's is probably going to drop its health care coverage thanks to Obamacare. We won't rehearse the abomination that program is to individual health and the health of the republic.

But get this. McDonald's is asking for a rule waiver, and HHS might grant it because so many employees are involved. If big companies are going to be exempted in a variation on "too big to fail," then the entire damn thing is just a massive tax on small business.

More importantly, if the rules can merely be waived, there is no law, there is only the whim of the Sec. of HHS.
