Skip to comments.To Pay for Obamacare, Tax Raises for America… Except Union Members

The Senate is about to pay off the unions for helping get Obama elected. Senator Max Baucus (D, Mont.) looks to be about ready to propose a plan to pay for Obamas massive, more than $1 trillion in new government spending on healthcare by instituting a new tax on many employees that currently have healthcare through their workplace (nearly 1 in 8 workers according to Peter Barnes). Never having been income before, Senator Baucus is prepared to claim it is and will be taxed accordingly.
unless, of course, you happen to be a union member. If you are a Democrat supporting, Obama voting union member, why you dont have to pay this never before levied tax at all. You get off scot free. Fuggedaboutit.
So much for equal under the law. Now, all you have to do is join a union and, voila, you dont have to pay the taxes everyone else suffers under. Arent you glad that Obama is so interested in fair, and balanced governance? Isnt it great that the Obama era is the post-partisan era? If it werent the post-partisan era, Id fear for my life instead of just my tax bill this being an example of Democrats fairness for America.
One of the many problems with Obamacare is his claim that the program could be made revenue neutral. It is a thorough fantasy to imagine it could be so. We all know that for Obama to begin to pay for even a small portion of this mess, taxes will have to be raised in many areas. And even that will never cover the cost of the trillions that Obama wants to spend on this policy.

All we can do now is starve the unions as much as possible. While we may not be able to escape government unions which “serve” us we can make sure we buy nothing made by anyone in a union.
I agree. I will try very hard to buy nothing related to union labor. Both of my parents worked for UAW companies, and I used to be sympathetic to unions, but I cannot support theft, which is what Obama is doing to hard working successful people in the US. The unions are applauding, or at least complicit with this theft. I can't feel empathic for people who are targeting others for their own interests.
Well how about we start a Vote Conservative union. Charge a buck for lifetime dues.
www.freelancersunion.com no dues and you get the some good discounts from companies like t-mobile that they have negotiated with ..
That will be impossible because most food container companies are union so if you buy a can,wrapper, glass container, plastic jar/jug you pretty much have bought a union container.
I thought the unions got GM and Chrysler for helping to elect the Wun. How much more to they get??
Hard to believe RATS are this stupid.
maifia had it right all along....don't play by govt rules...
