Then watch this one...
Personally, I am waiting for the other shoe to drop. This is a result of having 2700 pages of legislation that contains anything and everything. The Obama regime is still trying to sell healthcare and we keep getting these bombshells aimed at our wallets.
The president kept telling us we could keep our coverage if we liked it. Observers replied that employers will have every incentive to dump us onto whatever kind of subsidized provision eventually emerges.
This is exactly what observers say will happen with retiree drug benefits: The tax change will mean about 1.5 million to 2 million people will be dumped onto Medicare Part D, usually with inferior benefits.
It's not just taxes, either. The tax break staved off the reality that when public options duplicate what employers provide, employers have every reason to stop providing.
Nice benefits, while costly, help employers compete in hiring talent. But if taxpayers cover the benefit for everyone else, employers get no boost from generosity.
Even if employers want to be generous anyhow, the state's generosity makes theirs meaningless. It inculcates a sense of, "We already gave - through the IRS."
The Sell Job has been confusing and the backlash is going to propel lots of change in DC

Presaging the looming Republican sweep is the shift in the party ratings on various issues. Rasmussen has the Republicans ahead by 49-37 on the economy and 53-37 on healthcare. His likely-voter poll shows GOP leads on every major issue area: national security (49-37), Iraq (47-39), education (43-30), immigration (47-34), Social Security (48-36) and taxes (52-34).
When Republicans are winning issues like education, healthcare and Social Security — normally solidly Democratic issues — a sweep of unimaginable proportions is in the offing.
The Teaparty movement is gaining momentum. Even CNN has tried embracing them. Not that anyone is watching CNN. Way too much liberal bias is driving the population to watch FOX. The race baiting and intolerance of the Liberal mindset is unattractive to say the least.
Tighten your belt and support fiscal conservatives would be the mantra of the day.
