    But just because you won't, don't assume no one else will--or that no one else can.

    And it matters not how the union apologists dress up the language. It is "taxing everyone but unions." Grandfathering is BS in this case--what about non-union employees with existing health plans through their employers. Should they not also be grandfathered?

    Of course, grandfathering all health plans would pretty much kill the idea--so of course the fair and equitable solution is to just grandfather the unions.

    No, the fair and equitable solution is to kill this turkey of an idea NOW. While it is still just an idea.

    Or perhaps you want everyone but unions to be taxed on their health insurance? Perhaps you think it is a good idea?
    I believe I have commented on my communication with my senators and congressmen. Let's not even try and suggest I am not active.

    Nor have I defended the idea of grandfathering in the unions. I am simply correcting your mistake.

    Finally, I am waiting to see what comes out of committee. That will be the right time to express agreement or disagreement with the plan. I don't do as you do and jump on the partisan bandwagon and jump to conclusions.

    What's your preferred method of excluding labor from the workforce?

    Didn't they do this??
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Democrats as Union tools? Who'd of thunk it??





    Oh look, More punishment for those evil rich folks!
    One wonders which way Supreme Court candidate Kagan would vote, were this issue to come before the Supreme Court.

    This is a rhetorical question.
