So, it’s supposed to be about equality and equal access, right?
That would explain why the longshoremen’s union is exempt from the excise tax on the “Cadillac plans” and also the survival of full Medicare Advantage benefits in Florida to the exclusion of everywhere else.
Equality of Obamacare is also illustrated by the fact that we will all be chipping in for Nebraska’s share of Medicare… forever. And let’s not forget about religious equality in Obamacare. The amish are exempt altogether from Obamacare.
“There is a religious exemption in the bill,” said Roseanne Placey, spokeswoman with the Pennsylvania Department of Insurance, “which would apply to them, since they believe the religious duty of communities is to provide for one another when they are sick.”
Caring for each other through personal and/or private philanthropic means? What a concept.
But expect this massive statist incursion into our lives to choke-off even more of the self-reliant charitable spirit that is a manifestation of American exceptionalism.
After all, the government’s got it all covered, right?
