Democrats Give Unions Special Break in Health Care Bill

When this gets to SCOTUS, they can either overturn this law, or get rid of the inscription in front of their building.

Democrats Give Unions Special Break in Health Care Bill

Non Union workers will be forced to pay the difference!

Two neighbors do the same kind of work. One is a member of a union and the other is not. Both work in fields which require a substantial health insurance plan. So why is it that the neighbor in the non-union job will now pay a 40% tax on a premium health insurance plan and the union neighbor will get a waiver on that tax until 2018? It's another smack in the face to fairness that has been all too common in the Democrat conduct of health care "reform."

First there was the Louisiana Purchase with $300 million going to Louisiana to buy the vote of Senator Mary Landrieu (D). Then, the $100 million Cornhusker compromise which bought the vote of Ben Nelson (D-NE). A slew of other secret backroom deals for other states.

Now, the labor unions, which pumped tens of millions in Obama's 2008 campaign are getting another payoff.

To make up for the lost revenue, Democrats will have to raise taxes on the rest of us.


Tribune Capital's Danny Fontana argues exempting unions from a Cadillac Tax is unfair to non-union workers.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Equal justice under the law, but some people are more equal than others.

The health care bill is totally unconstitutional, these people doing this oh man I would LOVE for them to be thrown in JAIL!

How can we stand by while these misfits continue to stomp on our Constitution!!!!

Screw the unions. I'm glad I live in a right to work state that has a strong anti-union attitude.

You're right Anon, also the deficit is growing to an unsustainable rate. the National debt is closing in on $13 Trillion dollars.

The total National Debt is over $54 Trillion in toto. This of course does not include the total unfunded Liabilities.

The total debt for every single citizen is 346 thousand dollars. There is no way this can be paid off in 3 generations. It's immoral to pass on a debt of that magnitude to our grandchildren. This would be the first generation who won't have it better than we did.

The more I learn about economics, the more messed up this situation becomes. The good people of this country have been dumbed down to the point that they can't see the wool being pulled over their eyes. If we continue to chip away at their hold on power, we still have a chance to throw the wheels of destruction and serfdom in reverse.

Anon,you are so right, thanks for putting that here. Obama sure
loves to spend and tax and spend and tax more.

Tom, Amen, I agree.
