Two Americas — An Exemption from Taxes for Union Members?

Philip Klein reacts to the news of a possible exemption for labor unions from the excise tax on high-value health care plans. (See earlier post.) From The American Spectator, AmSpecBlog, “Report: Dems to Grant Special Exemption to Unions on “Cadillac Tax”:

If this policy is adopted, it would mean that there could be two Americans receiving the exact same benefits, but one American may be taxed and one wouldn’t, and the only difference would be one of them being a member of a union. This is unseemly and unfair, even by the standards of Obamacare. It has nothing to do with policy-making. It’s simply an outright bribe to a constituency that has contributed handily to Democratic campaigns.
