Capitalism Magazine - No Waiver from Reality for Rep. Weiner

Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) is one of the loudest proponents of ObamaCare, not to mention all things socialist. When he's critical of Obama, it's -- incredibly -- from the left, not from the right or the center. At the time of ObamaCare's passage, Weiner bragged that he wrote the House portion of the bill.

Now Weiner has joined the thousands of people, businesses and entities seeking a waiver from ObamaCare. He's seeking it for his entire New York district. Fox News reports that Weiner, who is likely to run for mayor of New York, said that because of the city's special health care infrastructure, his office was looking into alternatives that might make more sense. Weiner is one of the health care law's biggest supporters; during the debate leading up to reform, he was one of the last holdouts in Congress for the public option.

Now wait a minute. Weiner's looking for alternatives that "make more sense"? Doesn't ObamaCare make sense, at least according to people like him? Obviously not.
