    i've concluded this is the real agenda with the "gold-plated healthcare" tax.

    i mean, what kind of employees have typically managed to negotiate better than average benefits?  the only kind who can negotiate through collective bargaining: union employees.  so how do they shaft union organizers even more than they're doing now?  an extra tax for union employees.  

    oh sure, CEO's and their ilk have better plans, but do you really think a bush-proposed tax is aimed at them?  there'll be a loophole to keep them out of it, or else they'll just give themselves the extra to pay the tax.

    •  Interesting point, zeke. (0+ / 0-)

      Hadn't thought of that.

      Might be worth a diary, amplifying that line of thought.
