Unions poised to win delay of ObamaCare tax in budget deal

October 15, 2013

Barack Obama, Richard Trumka
Labor unions are poised to score the delay of an ObamaCare tax in the bipartisan budget deal emerging in the Senate.

The bargain under negotiation would make small adjustments to the healthcare law, including delaying the law’s reinsurance fee for one year. The three-year tax is meant to generate revenue that will stabilize premiums on the individual market as sick patients enter the risk pool.

The tax applies to all group health plans, but unions argue it will raise their healthcare costs while providing them no benefit.

The reinsurance tax figured prominently in discussions at a recent AFL-CIO convention, where workers passed a resolution demanding changes to ObamaCare.

The White House recently denied labor’s top priority on ObamaCare, ruling that union health plans are not eligible for the new subsidies because they are already helped by the tax code.

    The union is nothing more than a modern day version of the Mafia via Obama. They screamed so loud about how it was HURTING their union workers that they made a deal they couldn’t refuse. Scream loud enough you get your way as long as you are on the wrong side (friends of the thugs & tyrants). Just be sure you put the screws to everyone else in this country. It’s only fair and balance, according to the usurper in the Mafia white house of corruption. Why not. pooping on this country is the terrorist way via Islam.
