Why would Obama's administration favor a proposal inclusive of a clause that would award healthcare benefits free of tax for UNION workers but which would tax the healthcare benefits of the remainder of workers receiving employer provided benefits. Union workers are approx 12% of the workforce and to allow them to receive health benefits free of tax is as discriminatory an act as has ever occurred. A clear cut case of selective rewarding of politically favorable allies. A worker is a worker, health benefits are health benefits TAX EVERYONE receiving the benefits or tax NO ONE AT ALL.
