The onerous burden of Obamacare doesn't apply to Obama's pals

Obamacare: A Uniquely Vicious Form of Corruption

If you haven't already seen it, don't miss Karl Rove's column in today's Wall Street Journal. Rove explains the vicious strategy at the heart of Obamacare: pass terrible legislation, and then collect a toll by exempting your friends--those who pay you lots of money--from that legislation, while your enemies have to live with it. We have had various forms of corruption over the years, but I don't believe we have had, within memory, anything quite this disgusting. The worst malefactor here, besides President Obama himself, is AARP...

Everyone expects the union goons to get payoffs from Obama, but it's nice to see the AARP revealed for the sleazy hustlers they actually are. The AARP is really an insurance marketing operation disguised as an old folks lobby and since they supported Obamacare, their marketing machine got exempted from a whole variety of Obamacare restrictions. Think of it as a protection racket organized by Obama and the Democrats.
