Baucus wants to tax your health benefits, unless you're lucky enough to have a union contract
Senator Baucus has been the lead champion on the issue of taxing healthcare benefits to offset the costs of the healthcare reform proposals currently circulating among legislators. President Obama and fellow Democratic lawmakers have run into resistance from Rustbelt Democrats on the question of taxing healthcare benefits for unionized workers.
The proposal from Senator Baucus - which would exempt 12.4 percent of the American workforce - is in answer to that resistance.
This just makes a bad proposal worse.
Never forget, the reason they need all this money ins't to provide health care to people who don't have it, it is to subsidize health insurance parasites. Under a single payer system we would save $350 BILLION a year.
