Posted on 09/13/2019 9:19:16 AM PDT by ChicagoConservative27
In July, the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted 419-6 to repeal the health care Cadillac Tax. As the Senate returns to work, it is now time for the bipartisan group of more than 60 Senators to repeal the Cadillac Tax and end the threat that will destroy the health care of 181 million hard-working Americans and their families.
Hard-working Americans and their families have already been negatively impacted by the looming Cadillac Tax on the health care plans that the job creating employers of America provide to their workers. This tax was part of the Affordable Care Act and has been delayed twice because it will devastate employer-provided health care if allowed to go into effect.

Whatever they do is hypocritical unless they have the same health insurance system as US!
Pure political wording at its funniest. It destroys the credibility of whoever is saying it.
I’m not saying there are not Americans that work hard, but I’ve been in the work force for many decades. The number that actually “work hard” is a small percentage. and what does that phrase even mean outside of political statements?
OK, rant over. Carry on...
Interestingly enough, the bulk of those on the Cadillac plans are government employees.
I believe I saw a story on here a short while back, that was from a Dem Congressmans wife. She was complaining about their Healthcare Plan not covering counseling and therapy sessions. She made it sound like they had the same type of insurance. But maybe this woman’s family just doesnt have that coverage under their private insurance.
Surely Ovomit has some say about this? No?
Joining your rant.
As you say, the number of truly hardworking people is not very high. And then the politicians look around and see that some people have “more stuff” than other people. So those folks need to be taxed. What government does — overwhelmingly — is punish hardworking Americans. The truly rich, on the other hand, just become cronies and they get special benefits from the government.
Health insurance premiums paid by employers should be considered taxable benefits for the employees -- no different from a company car, life insurance premiums paid by the employer, day care reimbursements provided by the employer, etc.
Giving employers a tax break on these health care premiums in the first place has completely fouled up health care in this country.
Where would you rather go for medical care - the DMV (government health care) or your own personal doctor who you pay directly (healthcare in the free market)?
Common sense - something becoming more rare these days.
Yep. I’ve been listening to an abridged version of Atlas Shrugged lately. When I originally read the book about 30 years ago, I saw it as a warning. As I “hear” those same chapters, it describes, in way too real a way, the world we actually live in today.
Honestly, it kinda saddens me. If I were not a Christian, my feelings would be severe.
Did Dems finally realize this Obama tax would hurt those they need to vote Dem?
"Dont Destroy Private Sector Health Care, End the Cadillac Tax"
While corrupt, post-17th Amendment ratification lawmakers make heroes out of themselves in the eyes of hard-working, low-information voters by going though the motions of repealing the healthcare Cadillac Tax, a tax crisis manufactured by lawmakers, patriots are reminded of the following.
Regardless of politically correct interpretation of the scope of Congresss Commerce Clause powers by FDRs state sovereignty-ignoring activist justices, the states have never expressly constitutionally given the feds the specific power to regulate insurance, even if buyer and seller are domiciled in different states.
"4. The issuing of a policy of insurance is not a transaction of commerce within the meaning of the latter of the two clauses, even though the parties be domiciled in different States, but is a simple contract [emphases added] of indemnity against loss. Paul v. Virginia, 1869. (The corrupt feds have no Commerce Clause (1.8.3) power to regulate insurance.)
From the accepted doctrine that the United States is a government of delegated powers, it follows that those not expressly granted, or reasonably to be implied from such as are conferred, are reserved to the states, or to the people. To forestall any suggestion to the contrary, the Tenth Amendment was adopted. The same proposition, otherwise stated, is that powers not granted are prohibited [emphasis added]. United States v. Butler, 1936.
Corrections, insights welcome.
Remember in November 2020!
MAGA! Now KAG! (Keep America Great!)
Laura Ingraham says Make America Greater!
Ayn Rand had the destroyer class dialed in perfectly.
Yeah. She goes a little nutso with the John Galt speech at the end, but still...
Even the exposed thinking and excuses the hard left uses in the book is what we are actually seeing today.
Ayn Rand has been very influential (not influential enough, though) — but if she had managed to tell her stories WITH a Christian perspective, she would have had a much bigger impact. Alas! Christianity was not her cup of tea. It’s a terrible pity.
