Breaking: First Nancy, now Harry [UPDATED]

Un-freakin'- believable:

"ENTIRE State of Nevada Scores Obamacare Waiver"

Words fail (for now).

Just two days ago, Bob noted that SanFranNan had scored 20% of the latest ObamaWaiver©s for her district. He wisely observed that "we have to pass the waivers in order to know what is in them."

The term "prescient" comes to mind:

"The Health and Human Services Department announced late Friday that Nevada had secured a statewide waiver from certain implementation requirements of the Obama administration's health care law, because forcing them through, the department found, "may lead to the destabilization of the individual market."

At issue is the new Medical Loss Ratio rules which (among other things) dictate the percentage of premiums collected that must be paid out. It appears that (current) Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's home state just dodged a major bullet.

One is tempted to ask, of course, why he was so gung-ho for ObamaCare© in the first place, since he must have known, from a simple reading of the bill, that this was in it.

He did read the bill, right?

UPDATE: Not to put too fine a point on it, but it seems that Harry, Nancy and Barry have replaced Santa, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny in terms of largesse.

Don't believe me?
