Let’s call this what it really is: Re-distribution of health.
In effect, that’s the latest message coming from the White House as a desperate President Barack Obama grasps at straws to push his health care agenda down our throats once and for all. And it looks like he might just have the support he needs now.
President “Opaque” has held a series of not-so-secret closed-door meetings in an attempt to shore up support for a combined healthcare bill that he can sign into law (presumably after we have all had a chance to read the final bill for 72 hours, of course. Just like he promised in his campaign speeches. Oh wait. A year has gone by and he hasn’t actually done that yet, has he?)
In a private meeting with union officials yesterday, Obama gave them a sweetheart deal: Union members will be exempting Union shops from having to pay the 40% tax penalty for so-called “Cadillac Health Plans.”
Wake up, folks! That poking sensation you felt on your backside was NOT your dog asking to go for a walk. Your President is informing you: If you’re employed by a business that is NOT run by Union thugs, your business will have to pay an additional 40% penalty for treating you so well. For example: If your company spends $1,000,000 per year on health insurance for its employees, they will now be taxed an additional $400,000 under Obama’s healthcare plan. But if you’re a union shop? “Fuhgettaboudit!”
In short, the very healthcare program he’s putting in place to provide healthcare for all (in theory), would in fact, cause many employers to DROP their insurance because they can’t afford the penalty. The other option would be to REDUCE the level of coverage they provide for you until it has been weakened enough to meet Obama’s approval.
Let’s call this what it really is, folks: “Re-distribution of HEALTH.” As true a case of taxation without representation as you will ever find.
Now is the time to continue your calls, e-mails and faxes to your elected officials demanding they not pass this bill. Let them know they will be held accountable. Do NOT rest now!
Mmm-Mmm-Mmm… Barack Hussein Obama…
