He's spreadin' the wealth, folks - sorry, your wealth - and if you are lucky enough to work for a company that offers excellent health benefits (a reason you might have taken the job in the first place, over opportunities that might have paid more money), Barack Obama is about to take it away from you and give it to somebody else:
Obama put his support behind the idea of taxing employers that offer high-cost insurance plans.
"I do think that giving a disincentive to insurance companies to offer Cadillac plans that don't make people healthier is part of the way that we're going to bring down health care costs for everybody over the long term," Obama said on NBC's "Meet the Press."
He's going to tax them out of existence, to make sure we all get equally poor heath care as part of a socialized medical system. Just as Obama feels that around $250,000 is as much money as any American should make (the rest belongs to him to redistribute as he sees fit), he has in mind a limited heath care plan that he feels is enough for any American, no matter how much or how little they contribute to society. Bottom line: what is the minimum that can be received by all that will cover all? Whatever it is, it will be awful and we will all be stuck with it.
Ain't socialism grand?
