Dems to raise excise tax on middle class health care benefits *HIGHER STILL* to win CBO score…

Mashup by rx2008

Not enough to break your word and tax the middle class, they want to raise it HIGHER to get their ‘good’ CBO score. And of course their BOSS, Richard Trumka of AFL CIO has to say ok. Frak we middle class workers not in a union right Nancy?

Is it November yet?

Ben Smith has it at Politico:

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka is headed into a meeting with President Obama this afternoon after the White House and Congressional leaders have begun to discuss a higher-than-expected excise tax on some health care plans, in order to maintain their claim that health care legislation will reduce the deficit, a source involved in health care talks said.

Any unexpected change to the health care plan could endanger support for the bill from labor, which agreed to back it after reductions to the planned excise tax. Proposed new changes, I’m told, concern cuts to the rate at which increases to the tax exemption cap are indexed.
