Government Tax On Health Insurance Plans
With a wink and a smile President Obama continues his push to shove a health care reform bill down the throats of the American people that is largely not supportive of it.
An excerpt from a New York Time article on the subject sums it up;
“Let me tell you something,” Mr. Obama said, pointing to elements of the legislation he said would increase access to health care. “If Republicans want to campaign against what we’ve done by standing up for the status quo and for insurance companies over American families and businesses, that is a fight I want to have.”
And a response from Representative John Cline (R);
“This latest back-room maneuver is another example of how administration officials and their enablers in Congress will cut deals with their special-interest allies to impose a government takeover of health care,” Mr. Kline said.
It does appear the arguments will continue, although in the end the President will likely get his ill conceived and costly bill. Of course the taxpaying American public will get hit once again. Not only by the insurance and drug companies but by the government as well.
