The Waive Heard Around the World

When can everyone get a waiver who wants one? Aren’t liberals prochoice?
Check it out:

The IRS has graciously granted U.S. citizens overseas a waiver of the individual mandate:

12. Are US citizens living abroad subject to the individual shared responsibility provision?

Yes. However, U.S. citizens who live abroad for a calendar year (or at least 330 days within a 12 month period) are treated as having minimum essential coverage for the year (or period). These are individuals who qualify for an exclusion from income under section 911 of the Code. See Publication 54 for further information on the section 911 exclusion. They need take no further action to comply with the individual shared responsibility provision.

A couple of points. First, this is a fine example of how America’s national legislators have simply lost the ability to write laws. As the Wall Street Journal notes:

Most domestic policies don’t cover anything more than emergency care overseas.
