Buried deep in this bill is Section 1102, Reinsurance for Early Retirees. It is an enormous BAILOUT for public-sector union retiree HC benefits.
These protectionist unions will get an obscene payback for support of Obama & co in ‘08. This is one of the main reasons the Dems and their “sponsors” want this bill passed - NOW. This bailout to state & local organized labor is massive & continuing pork at its worst.
Why not rename the bill “Republicans & Independents (non-union) PAY FOR Democrats (union) Lifestyles Resolution.”
Taxpayers are just gonna to get screwed bloody for YEARS.
If the Fed-rats want to bailout their greedy state & local union masters, why not just DO it? Why systematically dismantle and destroy our great healthcare sector, in the process? WHY?????
I think the idea all along was and still is to take down the country piece by piece as fast as possible. Look at what he does not says,its all makes sense.
Section 1102, thanks for the info.
I’m putting this over on the Rush thread..
