Obama’s New Interior Secretary Nominee Received Obamacare Waiver for Her Company

President Barack Obama’s newly-named nominee to run the Department of the Interior, REI CEO Sally Jewell, sought and received a waiver from ObamaCare requirements for her outdoor clothing and equipment company in 2011. The Washington Examiner’s Charlie Spiering dug up the revelation Thursday, noting that Obama welcomed Jewell to the White House in 2009 to jointly argue for the passage of Obamacare. Obama held REI up as a model company.
