Another Obama Care backroom deal? Yes, and who can keep track of them as they go by? This one from the Alliance for Worker Freedom:
After a Tuesday meeting between White House officials and union leaders, the two sides reached a health care deal that would exempt union health care plans from new taxes. While plans with similar benefits are likely subject to tax rates as high as 40%, health care plans negotiated under union managed collective bargaining agreements will remain tax-free.
“The decision to exclusively tax non-union health care plans represents the latest and most egregious sop to Democrat’s most loyal ally – big labor,” said Brian Johnson, Executive Director of The Alliance for Worker Freedom. Johnson added, “Unions got the legislation they were lobbying for while getting the rest of the country to pay for it; and Burger and Stern aren’t even registered lobbyists!”
I know, I know. You’re scarcely impelled to bat an eyelash anymore, much less jump out of your chair and fly into an indignant rage. Corrupt, special-interest Chicago-style politics has become synonymous with the so-called attempt by Congress and the Obama administration to reform health care.
Help back Scott Brown in Massachusetts and secure the 41st vote to block the monstrosity of Obama Care.
