Hillary seems to be against that precious Obama.Care provision called the "Cadillac Tax".

The "Cadillac Tax" is designed to levy a tax on so-called "premium" insurance plans to "help" pay for some government costs associated with Obama.Care.

Unions seem to be against it also, apparently many union members get premium policies through negotiated contracts.

Hillary wants to repeal the "Cadillac Tax".

Good or Bad ?


Clinton to call for nixing ‘Cadillac Tax’ on health plans under Obamacare


Hillary Rodham Clinton will come out this week against a tax on generous health-care plans that is a key means of funding the Affordable Care Act she supports, but is also opposed by labor unions crucial to her presidential bid.

Clinton plans to announce that she seeks a repeal of the so-called “Cadillac tax” on premium health plans, a campaign official said Tuesday. Clinton’s position was first reported by the New York Times.

Clinton frequently praises the 2010 ACA, often known as Obamacare, but says it does not go far enough. She has proposed $250 monthly caps on out-of-pocket costs for prescription drugs and three unscheduled doctor visits annually that would not count against a patient’s insurance plan deductible.

You've said it all.
Hillary is sucking up to Union support over supporting Obama's crowning achievement.
The Cadillac Plan was designed to finance Obamacare. Without it, it falls completely (it's already collapsing) apart...and everyone who has it gets screwed (more than they are getting screwed already).

Breaking: Teamsters withhold support from Hillary Clinton.---FOX

Hillary's pandering looks like an attempt to mend fences with some Unions...no doubt she knew earlier Teamsters were planning to withhold their support.

So then is how is subsidized health care going to be paid for if the 'Cadillac' Tax gets nixed ?

Those insurance policies have to be paid for some other way.

Raise taxes on the middle class ?

Raise taxes on the evil rich?

Create new taxes like the alternative minimum tax ?

Create more new taxes like the Medicare Surtax ?

Answer ALL of the above.

Basically if the ACA wasn't already screwed up enough as it was.

Clinton wants to screw it up infinitly worse.

And go check open secrets to see how much more money unions have given Clinton.

Exit stage left.

I think Obamacare....it's name is nothing short of narcissistic.

I think that Obamacare....has it's roots founded in a good principle...but it's execution was heavily flawed by greed.

As it sits now, it's useless for the most part. For me and my family for example, our healthcare premiums alone would have gone up 250%. I don't see how anyone could say that's 'affordable'.

The "Cadillac" tax as they call it - is just one of many deep flaws in the execution of the idea that is 'obamacare'.

I'd call for it to be repealed, and those who choose to stay, can be grandfathered in.

A free people? At this rate, not for long.

I'd be very wary of the left trying to tweak their healthcare debacle...

Doesn't #2 Sanders have a more radical replacement in mind for the ACA?


Honestly I don't see how HIllary is a viable representative of the Dem party... who keeps her propped up as a contender?

the left have some decent folks out there... I am all for what Jim Webb is about... he just doesn't cowtow to the pocket fillers and sticks to principles...

A culture change is needed in DC.... another "bought and paid for" election cycle isn't what the folks need... nor desire...

We have had enough of those in the Oval office play with our emotions and sensibilities ...

Covering Wall Streets ass, while punishing folks stealing a meal, isn't resonating with the folks... who have suffered post 2007-8 collapse..

The very existence of a HILLARY for Prez, doesn't just worry the right... plenty on the left are left scratching their heads as to her still being a name considered to represent the DEM party...

Is she really even worthy of consideration at this point? If so, why, and who is behind this?

Indeed, I've talked to a lot of registered Democrats ... and most of them are luke warm at best about Hillary. I think its fair to say no one really "likes" Hillary. The Dems would vote for her just to keep a Republican out of the WH though.

Look who is leading the Right.... Trump (not my cup of tea) and Carson... outsiders...

The Left? Clinton (status quo) & Sanders.. who (to more conservative folks) an extreme dive to the left...

I am a Carson (right) Webb (left) supporter... both want the madness that our National politics have become...

It's ok to have differences, as long as your differences that are debated benefit the folks who voted you into office...

Hell, we in this generation may have been as principled as the previous, and outweighed by corporate influence...

If so, who's fault is that... those who maintain power, or US, who would rather fight each other over intentionally created divides...

IT's worked so far.. I guess... that's why Hillary is sticking around..

I'm often perplexed when I see political candidates bending over backwards (or forwards towards the zipper) to satisfy labor unions. As of 2013, only 11.3% of voters are Union Members. Aren't there larger groups that should be focused on and pandered to?

Socialists. What more can I say. Hmm.. actually yeah, a whole lot more !

I hope all goes well in 2016 erections, and we get somebody with brains on top of all of this, and that top indian chief can then kick this OBC in a bucket, give it to a bunch of swines to chew (they chew pretty much anything), and these will poop it out to fertilise some organic fields of wine, and I can then get so drunk of ObamaCare as these Commies and Socialists seem to be.
