Health care bill is a Frankenstein’s monster
San Francisco Chronicle - Debra J. Saunders

President Obama, congressional Democrats and labor leaders cut a sweetheart deal last week. They agreed to create a loophole for a new 40 percent tax on “Cadillac” health care plans. In their holy bid to take care of their own, this new triumvirate agreed to exempt from the excise tax union-bargained health care plans and state and local government employees until 2018. Obamaland’s continual deal-cutting to deliver a bill – any bill – surely will kill the beast.
