Obama Bows To Unions Again: Obama to Meet Union Leaders Over Their Opposition to Cadillac Tax
Hey, Jackass. How about meeting with the American People about it?
President Obama plans to meet with union leaders Monday to discuss their opposition to a proposed tax on high-cost insurance plans, a tax that would pay for his health care overhaul plan, sources told Fox News.
The meeting is expected to include leaders from the AFL-CIO, Service Employees International Union and other labor organizations.
Union officials told The Associated Press that they view the meeting Monday as a chance to forcefully make their case that the tax is bad policy and bad politics. Unions contend that the tax would be passed along to workers.
