Speaking of Obama’s deal with the unions to exempt them from the cadillac (high-value) health plan tax, isn’t it outrageous how they want everyone to pay for socialized health care – except for the socialists.
The people who want massive government spending should help pay for massive government spending. Logical, right? What a dirty, smelly, obnoxious move Obama and his minions just pulled off. It’s like rubbing the faces of all the rest of us in the putrified mud.
Giving one group a special favor like that would need to be justified by demonstrating that it’s for the greater good of the country or some such reason. But the Obama people didn’t even attempt to explain it on grounds like that. They left the accurate impression that it was done for crass political reasons.
Now that’s what I call banana republicism.
