You guys are being scammed once again by your government. Pay attention and I will explain. Under ObamaCare, the government is forcing employers to provide a fringe benefit to their employees. But that is not good enough for some people. Now they want the government to specify exactly what the fringe benefit must contain in the way of coverage. Employer provided health insurance was a creation of labor unions in days past. Employer provided health insurance drives up the cost of health care. But instead of fixing that problem, Obama is doubling down, forcing all employers to provide it. The average person's employer provided health insurance costs $12,000 a year. The employee pays about ten to fifteen percent of the premiums. So the employee is receiving about $10,000 in fringe benefits just by way of health insurance from their employer each year. Anyone who gets employer provided health care does not have to declare it as income even though their employer pays the vast majority of the cost. However, that tax exemption has a limit. Under ObamaCare, Congress set that limit at around $18,000. Any insurance benefit you received worth more than that had to be counted as income. Well, Obama took care of his labor union pals and pen and inked that ceiling to $27,000 so labor union Cadillac plans would not be taxed. By setting the ceiling at $27,000, Obama is giving a gigantic tax cut to his rich labor union pals. I did not hear one single shriek from the Left about tax cuts for labor unions adding to the deficit and costing all of us money. Not one. And I was paying REAL close attention all during the health reform process. And now Obama is entrenching employer provided health care even deeper by making it MANDATORY for employers to provide. So he is bending the cost curve UP. Then along comes this one percenter at Georgetown law school who wants the government to force her college to buy her birth control, so everyone can subsidize her sex life even though her tuition is MORE than what the average American earns. So what you have there is a one percenter stealing from the 99 percent. But again, I don't hear one leftie shrieking about it. No. In fact, all the libbies are arguing for birth control to be added to everyone's health insurance. In her Congressional testimonty, the one percenter claimed her birth control costs $1000 a year. No one on the left challenged her on that claim. According to the US Census, there are 61.7 million women of childbearing age. If we paid for all their birth control, that would be in the neighborhood of half a trillion dollars a decade. If Fluke is exaggerating, let's use Planned Parenthood's figure: $600 a year. So the bleeding hearts want to add tens of billions of dollars a year to everyone's insurance bills so they can screw their brains out on our dime. And then the next year they will undoubtedly bitch about the cost curve of healthcare insurance still bending upward, and rant about evil insurance corporations, and demand the government do something about it. This is what happens when you believe the government has the power to tell employers what fringe benefits they must provide. This is what happens when you are a supplicant to tyranny.
