Labor Unions May Get Break From Obamacare Fee
Labor Unions, who were cheering on the passage of Obamacare are now complaining that the new law will drive up costs for its members and want a waiver from paying the so-called reinsurance fees that will cost about $63 per person. Some people get taxed but union members don’t and some have to pay in more so Mr. Obama can deliver favors to his political constituents. Unions were told out right before the last election not to expect any Obamacare favors unless the unions helped re-elect the President. Of course, the taxpayers will have to make up for the money unions don’t contribute to the reinsurance fund. But the point must be made that exempting unions from the tax is all about political pay back and not health care justice for all.
