    Thanks Barack.

    Here’s another little jewel tucked away in Obama’s Un-Affordable Care Act.
    More union workers, city workers, county workers, etc. will be able to retire early. This is now possible because YOU will be stuck with paying for their healthcare under the democrat’s new health care law.
    This was discovered by RepandProudofit at Free Republic:

    The health care bill gave Health and Human Services a $12 Billion slush fund designed to help people who decide to retire early, i.e. before 65, Medicare age.
    From the Healthcare.gov website:
    The Affordable Care Act?s Early Retiree Reinsurance Program | HealthCare.gov

    SNIP:
    Here is the list of the “employers” who have qualified for the supplements so far.
    http://www.healthcare.gov/law/provisions/retirement/02232011_a_to_z_employers.pdf
    Note that the “employers” on the list are mostly unions, cities, counties and colleges. Dems knew this would be the case when they wrote the bill by making supplements available only to employers who continue providing health coverage to workers who retire early, before Medicare age. How many private companies do that?

    read the rest with comments.

    Not to mention Sec. 1311 (a) that says they can tap the Treasury for an unlimited amount for funds to help with the states funds when they need it.
