Damn the cost and force this down the American Tax Payers throat, Some Medicine.

In Health care, Obama on January 15, 2010 at 12:28 pm

Big Labor to back the struggling legislation with concessions worth up to $60 billion. Top union officials said newly drafted exemptions from their members will cost the White House $60 billion in projected revenue over 10 years. The White House said no official figure was available, but did not suggest the union figure was misleading. (This would mean it is going to cost you more)!

Unions and 190 members of the House had threatened to fight the reform bill because the Senate wants to slap a tax on so-called Cadillac insurance plans worth more than $23,000.

But under the deal reached yesterday, negotiators agreed to increase the tax kick-in to plans valued at more than $24,000 for families and $8,900 for individuals – and exempt collectively bargained union plans until 2018.

Every part of these deals in done in secret with only Democrats, What is the Obama Administration afraid of?

“I suffer no illusions that this will be an easy process. It will be hard. But I also know that nearly a century after Teddy Roosevelt first called for reform, the cost of our health care has weighed down our economy and the conscience of our nation long enough. So let there be no doubt: health care reform cannot wait, it must not wait, and it will not wait another year.”
