Hollywood Turning Against ObamaCare

Alec Baldwin, award winning actor and wannabe leftist political commentator, called on Congress to sink congressional health care legislation today, saying he would rather the federal government "Put a Major Oil Company Out of Business," according to the headline of his column [1] at the Huffington Post.

Baldwin isn't the only liberal entertainer calling for the death of ObamaCare. Plans to tax so-called "Cadillac" health care plans--or the most expensive insurance plans--have riled up some key Democratic supporters. The Teamsters Union and the AFL-CIO have protested, but now objections are also being raised by Hollywood's biggest unions.

    Plans to tax so-called "Cadillac" health care plans

    Why is it that "plans" always include taxing something? Is that really the only improvement legislators can make?
    It just seems like legislators have an inability to think in any other way...
    "How can I better legislate to use some more of your money?"

    An amendment should be added to the Constitution, making it illegal to tax any person's income more than a fixed percent. Let's say 10%. They'd be welcome to tax less than that.

    I'm sure that those who can afford to pay it or were in the top 1% of those who should be forced to pay for it would say kill it.

    I'm far from the top 1% and it's going to be levied on me too! I say KILL IT.

    Within three years of its implementation, according to the Congressional Budget Office, the tax would apply to nearly 20 percent of all workers with employer-provided health coverage in the country, affecting some 31 million people. BOB HERBERT

    As well as all employers, like me. This would force me to decrease the plan I have now, raise the deductible or both. I may not be able to afford it at all. Add me to the ranks of government dependents......I don't think so! I'll go without, will not pay the fine.....so, put me in jail ozero..cause I AM NOT COOPERATING !

    It is such crap when some people say it is only the wealthy who will pay for this reform.

    Yah, I seem to recall some jerk named obaabaa who said he would NOT raise taxes on ANYONE making less than $250,000 a year. I think what the jackass meant was anyone making less than $25.00 a year.
