The Republican congressman leading the investigation into the Obama administration’s decision to grant more than 700 waivers [2] to the new health care law is questioning whether the law could be effective if so many waivers are needed.

Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) also noted the high percentage of Obama-supporting labor unions that received waivers – which exempt them from a provision in the new health care law that bans annual limits on what insurance plans will pay for medical coverage.

“The American people repeatedly have been told that the new health care law is an effective and responsible plan for overhauling the nation’s health care system,” Rep. Stearns told CNSNews.com in a statement. “Yet, if the law is so good, why are so many waivers to the law being granted?”

Stearns is chairman of the subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations for the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which is investigating the waivers granted to various companies, unions, non-profit organizations and states and municipalities.
