Posted on 03/10/2014 9:48:39 PM PDT by Nachum
Sen. John Thune (R., S.D.) called out the Obama administration for an outrageous Obamacare tax exemption for certain unions that he says will be passed on to the American people.
Every American ought to be outraged, he said. This is cronyism at its worst. Basically, what the president said was that he and his friends are above the law, because there is a reinsurance tax in Obamacare thats designed to apply to all self-insured plans. And what the president did is he waived that for certain, self-insured, self-administered plans, namely unions, so they dont have to pay that tax. And because the tax was designed to raise a certain amount of revenue, that means everybody else has to pay a higher tax.
Unions have been one of the most surprising and vociferous Obamacare critics. The strongly Democratic groups have written lawmakers demanding changes to the law that had, among other things, redefined a full work week as 30 hours.
Now, Thune said, Obama has given in, partially, to their demands and the cost will be borne by those not fortunate enough to wield union influence.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
AFSCME if I care?
he had his chance, he blew it
The EXEMPT and their Moslem Master
simply DO NOT CARE about Americans.
They arm al Qaeda, protect their mosques,
and leave the American border open for them,
but Americans they HATE with a passion.
Not sure he had a chance.
The only thing that will stop lawless Obama is impeachment. Deal with it you cowards in the gOp.
Stroke of the pen, law of the land, a phone call or two, kinda cool.
Culture of corruption.
Everyone knew that Obama would screw the American people to “take care of his friends”. It’s Obama politics.
We’re all equal, except some are more equal than others
He voted for cloture. He had his chance and bailed on us. Now he is whining? No thanks.
Doesn’t that create standing for members of other groups and taxpayers in general due to discriminatory pplication of law? Also granting this tax break affects all taxpayers since they have to make up the difference. In this case it is being done by a whim of the President to a group that has made extensive contributions in both people and money and is expected to do it again. A quid pro quo to boot.
The RINO’s that refused to stand with Ted Cruz like Thune want to modify Obamacare to make it more business friendly, they don’t want to eliminate it.
Every American should be outraged at his entire presidency. But alas ... to most voters, political party affiliation is more important than following the constitution, apparently.
The media controls public opinion by setting the perspective through which we see the world. Our real enemy is the media.
30 hours being considered as full-time employment is KILLING us. But, that’s the plan, Eh?
Worst. President. Ever. Worst. Congress. Ever.
No, every republican congress member should be outraged enough to shut down the gov.t....... oh..... I guess every republican should not be that outraged after all.
The Taxed Enough Already Party is the first serious threat to the parasitic hold that Federal Professional Politicians in both political parties have on those of us who are Taxed Enough Already.
The Federal Professional Politicians in both political parties have been uniting to suppress us since November, 2010.
The Federal Democrats have been, and continue to, suppress us through the brute force of the IRS, DOJ, NSA, and other Gestapo-Style Federal Agencies that we are forced to finance.
The RINOs are suppressing us by their Public statements and critical cave-in votes to Democrats.
Thus, the Federal RINOs and Democrats have united against us.
Fair enough: BRING IT !
Both the RINOs and the Democrats have Professional Politicians who are dependent on their ability to control those of us who still pay Personal Federal Income Taxes, in order to continue to be on our payroll.
What better way to control us than to make us slaves to them who are the masters of us?
Both Political Parties in our current Communal Federal Government understand that the purpose of naming a Master/Slave Federal Government Program an Entitlement is to deceive the enslaved population into believing that becoming slaves to a Master is something to be desired, and thus reduce the probability of a slave rebellion.
The Master/Slave Entitlement of Obamacare is the most Communal of all of the Federal Government Master/Slave Entitlement Programs, because it can legally collect monies and/or property after death of the Entitled Slave, or from their surviving family members.
FORWARD, the RINOcare RINOS!
FORWARD, the Obamacare Democrats!!

RINO Coward Thune is as guilty as Soetoro-Obama because he refuses to use his good offices to enforce the US Constitution and Impeach Soetoro-Obama.
RINO Coward Thune is the perfect example of why the RINO Wing is the most destructive force to the formerly great Republican Party.
The sooner that we rid the Republican Party of RINO Cowards such as Boehner, Cantor, Ryan, McConnell, Cornyn, McCain and now Thune, the better our chances will be to restore Constitutional Law in the current Communal US Federal Government.
BTW, RINO Coward Thune, our OUTRAGE is simple: the summer of 2014 is the time to Impeach Obama, or for you to resign as Senator.
You are an “extremist” and so am I, because we demand the rule of law.
Always proud to be extremely Right!
If the Regulation Mantra: “We must write a Regulation so well written that this current bad situation never happens again!” had any truth to it, then all that would be needed to be done would be to post THE Regulation against Bank Robbery on every Bank in America, and then there would “never again” be another Bank robbery in the United States of America.
If faith in the Law
Is seen as a flaw,
Then write to Regulate,
And replace the Law!
And that is the problem.
