The Labor Loophole

Updated on January 15, 2010

First it was the Louisiana Purchase; next the Cornhusker Kickback now it looks like Obama is in the process of purchasing the final piece necessary to complete his Socialist jigsaw puzzle; now we have the Labor Loophole which was necessary in order to bring big labor to the dance. So, King Hussein has exempted their "Cadillac plans from the taxes until 2017 while the remainder of the country will pay for the privilege of having high dollar health insurance plans immediately.

So it now appears this revenue neutral plan will look something like this. The so called benefits will not kick in until 2014 while the new taxes associated with it begin this year. Louisiana received $300,000,000 for their vote while the remaining 49 states received $0.00. Nebraska will not pay for the cost associated with the expansion of Medicaid which results from this bill, those cost would be paid for completely with federal funds, while other states would have to dip into their state budgets to meet the required expansion. And the Unions would be allowed to drive their Cadillac Plans around until 2017 with no additional cost while the remainder of the country; except the Amish who are exempt from the plan completely for religious reasons, are forced to drive Nash Ramblers” or pay the additional 40% excise tax so the unions can be paid off for their unwavering support of King Hussein Obama! Can you say I wanna Puke?

And where you ask are the so called Moderate Democrats who were elected in 2008, running on a platform of fiscal responsibility? Well my friend it is a little known fact that immediately upon arrival in Washington D.C. every Democrat undergoes a Vulcan Mind Meld so as to assume the thought process of Saul Alinsky whose mind they extracted just prior to death and managed to keep alive in Robert Byrd all these many years. Byrd long since lost his own mind so there was plenty of room in his head for the transplant! So there are no so called Moderate Democrats, they all march in lock step towards that socialist utopia in which all of us work for the collective good of the state and redistribution reins king; from each according to his ability to each according to his need; hello Joe the Plumber!

So with this latest hurdle out of the way, what is the perceived timetable we are looking at for the Government takeover of 1/6 of the economy; they hope to move it forward as quickly as possibly towards a vote within the next two weeks. According to Rep. George Miller (D-CA), chairman of the House Education and Labor Committee, the final conference committee-approved legislation could be scored in the next few days. It is important to remember here the CBO only scores what they send them. So, when this bunch of Commicrats say they are going to reduce Medicare payouts to Drs. by an additional 30% the CBO scores the cost of the additional millions added to the Medicare budget accordingly even though there is no way in hell this reduction in payments will occur; Drs. would be up in arms and revolt leaving an even worse Dr. patient ratio than will already occur with the passage of this legislation. Or the Sweetheart deals cut with Landriue ($300,000,000 Louisiana Purchase) and Ben Nelson (Cornhusker Kickback unable to calculate the enormous cost added) will not be included in the cost of the bill CBO scores!

And finally, look for the unions to go back and get their exclusion extended well beyond the 2017 deadline. So, my friends, not only will you be paying for the increase in cost for the citizens from the states of Louisiana and Nebraska, you can now take solace in the fact that you will also foot the bill for all the trade unions of this country. You will pay dearly in increased taxes while your union buddy down the street continues to drive around in his Cadillac Plan at your expense! After all, this is what King Hussein said on the campaign trail; “I think we are all better off when we spread the wealth around”!

Elections have consequences!

      You do recognize Sarcasm when you see it I hope. I represented THE MAN for 37 years working in a heavily unionized industry. The pendulum has long since swung way off balance to where organized labor is nothing more than a collection of thugs demanding and intimidating management into unreasonable concessions.

      That’s why the national theme song for organized labor should be

      Where have all the good jobs gone; long time passing where have all the good jobs gone long time ago where have all the good jobs gone, gone overseas everyone when will they ever learn when will they ever learn

      "Yes Union jobs are usually well paying jobs but they represent the little guy who was forced to ban together in order to keep from being oppressed by THE MAN!"

      lol. The Man is now the union president. By every standard, labor unions are now big business. In every sense of the word, labor unions represent the oppressive far-away bureaucracy embodied by the nasty corporations that Samuel Gompers railed against.

      The sad part is Obama is buying votes with our tax dollars; i.e. Stimulus Plan. Where do you think all that money is; it remains in Obama’s war chest waiting to be spent this year to help struggling Democratic candidates that are in trouble for supporting healthcare! The last thing this Oligarchy is worried about is legality.

      Yes Union jobs are usually well paying jobs but they represent the little guy who was forced to ban together in order to keep from being oppressed by THE MAN!

      Obama’s enemy is Wall Street, Big Capital and any other entity that serves as the catalysis for the capitalistic system. Obama’s enemy is Capitalism. Like any pure Socialist he hates Capitalism!

      Bush was burned at the stake for waking up every day. His mistake was beating Gore in 2002. The Nutso-Wacko’s never got over loosing that election so they flew overhead like hungry vulchers everyday of his 8 year presidency waiting for a carcass to feed on. The media worked tirelessly to provide them with the carcass.

      Obama is building his Army of Insurrection one Brigade at a time; he now has the Saul Alinsky Brigade under General George Soros, The Reparations Brigade under joint command of the Justice Brothers, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, Their Legal Brigade under the Trial Lawyers, The Pie in the Sky Brigade under the Hollywood Left’s rotating command (a different airhead celebrity taking charge every day) and finally the last two Brigades which supply the foot soldiers necessary to venture out into the various polling places every election to rough up and intimidate voters; these are the Acorn Brigade and the AFL-CIO Brigade.

      Bush had the American people for one day, 09/11/01; then the Cacophony of Nattering Nabobs of Negativism began all over again!

      Obama has successfully bought votes and I know that's not legal. If he wants to redistribute the wealth how is the better paying jobs are getting the tax breaks! Each time the unions renegotiate their contracts they will got the same break. Meybe we will end up with a lot more Amish.

      Remember when Bush was burned at the stake for making oil prices go up? Liberals howling about cronyism?

      Hmmm... How's Obama taking care of his union cronies?

      Before it is all said and done we may all end up in jail; like Alexander Solzhenitsyn the long suffering Soviet dissident was sentenced to a Gulag for dissenting with the Supreme Soviet Dictate so we fellow Hub Page Bloggers may someday draw the ire of King Hussein and his Politburo. He may not be able to run us through the industrial shredders like his idol; Sadam Hussein but we will be silenced all the same. This regime does not tolerate malcontents such as we

      You are correct, this is indeed a group of Chicago thugs running the show; Al Capone would be proud of Obama and Emanuel. We gotta wake those same lazy a**holes up before November of this year in order to begin stopping this madness. The revolution is here and now; just as the first one began in Massachusetts over 200 years ago this one will culminate this coming Tuesday. Pray that God will look favorably on our cause this time around as he did those many years ago when we were up against equally overwhelmingly odds! If somehow Acorn can be stopped from intimidating voters away from polls and Union Thugs who will be bused in to rough up would be voters can be curtailed we will win a fair election; but that’s a big if!

      This group of thugs running the show truly has no shame whatsoever. Luckily for them, it seems that most people are too uninterested and lazy to take any note of what the BO as*holes are doing to ALL OF US!!! My husband and I were discussing things last evening during dinner, and we are both astounded at how completely divided this country has become during the last year. I am fearful of a revolution coming to the USA in the near future, because some of us (including my friends here on the hub) are becoming over tired of the union thugs and ACORN getting so many bribes and rewards while the rest of us have to pay for it.

      The state of our nation was summed up very nicely in your hub. To summarize, we are screwed!
