From the following article: AP Sources: Obama backs high-end health plan tax
My biggest gripe is his complete ignorance. Not only will he tax the middle class he is going to totally screw people like me and the thousands of others in my same position. The most ignorant quote of the article:
“I’m on record as saying that taxing Cadillac plans that don’t make people healthier but just take more money out of their pockets because they’re paying more for insurance than they need to, that’s actually a good idea, and that helps bend the cost curve,” the president said in an interview with National Public Radio just before Christmas. “That helps to reduce the cost of health care over the long term. I think that’s a smart thing to do.”
Are you kidding me? I’ll tell you what Mr. President, come on over to my house. Lets have a heart to heart. I would love for you to come tell me my insurance plan is a waste of money. Then, you and I can go to my provider, and you can again tell them my plan is a waste of money. Don’t worry, I will have all the documentation you could ever want available to prove to you otherwise.
I completely understand there are people who have a Cadillac plan that don’t use it. Hell they could save some money on a typical 80/20 or HSA plan. However, I don’t. It would cost me more, a lot more to not have a “Cadillac” plan. On top of that, you want to tax me for it? So then I have to decide, does it cost me more to get taxed or to switch to a lesser plan that will cost me assloads more out of pocket.
I’m sorry, but you are an ignorant son of a bitch. Of course, what do you have to worry about. You get the best medical care in the world and you don’t have to pay a dime. Talk about a Cadillac plan. More like a Bugatti Veryon plan.
