Shocka: Obama to Exempt Unions from Tax

By Caomhin

Obama, as we all know, is feeling the itch to raise taxes, much like every other liberal in this nation.  One of the taxes he is particularly found of is taxing high cost health care plans so that his dream of Socialized Medicine can come true.  It is important to note here that while he is seeking new tax revenues for this plan, he will also severely underfund this plan and plunge America into yet another entitlement program crisis years down the line, another modus operandi of liberals.

Consider the fact that Obama has wanted his tax on “Cadillac” health-care plans, ones that exceed an annual premium of $8,900 for individuals and $24,000 for families.  Here in America we believe that all people are created equally, unless of course you are a liberal, in which case you don’t believe that at all.  Case in point is the Unions opposition this plan, and apparently, all that money they paid the Obama campaign and other Democrats granted them protection from a tax that Obama thought was necessary for everyone who has these health care plans…except for Union Workers:

The sweetheart deal, hammered out behind closed doors, will save union employees at least $60 billion over the years involved, while others won’t be as lucky — they’ll have to cough up almost $90 billion.

The 40 percent excise tax on what have come to be called “Cadillac” health-care plans would exempt collective-bargaining contracts covering government employees and other union members until Jan. 1, 2018.

So it’s imperative to tax everyone who falls under his plan unless you gave money to his campaign and actively supported his campaign.  Everyday we see a little more hubris and hypocrisy from Obama.  He wants socialized health care, but he doesn’t want supporters of Democrats to pay for it.  Actually, as we have seen with Geithner and nearly all his appointees and nominees for posts, liberals simply cheat on their taxes anyway.  Besides, if Union members are treated as other Americans, have less disposable income, and get hosed by liberals, who will stuff money into liberal coffers and get dead people to the polls?
