The President's Farcical Deficit Commission (NCFRR) caught my attention today while perusing The Alton Telegraph. The AP article, "Tax break for employer health plan a target again," commanded my attention. I wondered if there might be something in the article giving a clue as to the path toward the single-payer, socialized medicine dream of the left... a dream shared by candidate Obama (at least as he spoke to union members). I was not thinking "deficit commission" when I began to read the article. I was looking for the source of the proposed elimination of the "tax break," which would obviously help the statist realize his dream.
The president of the SEIU must not have gotten much training before she succeeded Andy Stern because her quote sounds like she is more concerned about her members than with the agenda of the elitist left.
Tampering with health care tax breaks is "a terrible step in the wrong direction," said Mary Kay Henry, the new president of the Service Employees International Union, which represents many hospital workers. "We want the middle class stabilized, not destabilized."
