Reform, like rules and taxes, are for the little people.

Look who's getting an exemption from Obamacare.

Founded in 2002, the New England Healthcare Institute – known as NEHI – is a nonprofit, independent health policy institute dedicated to transforming health care for the benefit of patients and their families.

So an institute dedicated to finding ways to reform the health care system had to apply for an exemption from the administration’s reforms to the health care system?

Lovely. Well in all fairness, NEHI is all about transforming healtcare for all you rubes, why should their plans have to change? It's not like Congress or the President have to follow the rules of Ocare, why should their water-carriers?

Oh and don't worry about people who lobbied for "Reform" being rewarded by the administration, even if that reward is an exemption from said reform.

The other day at work, I got an e-mail announcing that open enrollment for health benefits would begin later this month. In big bold letters, it let us know that due to the healthcare reform bill, there would be changes afoot and we should all pay very careful attention when choosing our benefits.

I headdesked.

Meh, it's not enough that they try to control everything, but they have to do it so patronizingly and sanctimoniously... and incompetently.
