Opponents of the new healthcare law have been handed a potent new weapon in their campaign to repeal it. That’s the 1,040 waivers to a portion of the law issued by the Obama administration as of Thursday, The Hill reports.

Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich. says the waivers should be offered to anyone. “If the SEIU gets a waiver and McDonald’s gets a waiver, shouldn’t the average person who’s impacted by this get a waiver, too?”
