Roughly 1,200 companies received waivers from part of the healthcare reform law, the Health and Human Services Department said Friday…Republicans say the need for waivers proves that the healthcare law is unworkable. HHS argues that the waivers show the law provides flexibility.
Unworkable or flexible? What concerns me is that politics, that is who you know, what party you belong to, who you supported or contributed to, will become even more important. The success of your biomedical research company or your diagnostic software development firm may be more dependant on your lobbying efforts than on the quality of your product or service.
