Phony Health Plan Taxes Kaiser, Anti-Abortion, Jails Poor
19 Jan 2010
The latest horror of Obama's so-called health plan is that it taxes all Kaiser plans as we are fully insured. This tax giveaway to the insurance companies that leaves many uninsured also is anti-abortion, anti-immigrant and allows for jailing people who cannot or will not pay for this racket that does not provide medical care but only insurance.

Massachusetts also has Kaiser. It also has a lot of union plans which will be taxed as labor fought for decent healthcare, something the rest of the industrialized world has had for decades, including Germany, where the German workingclass won universal healthcare 127 years ago, along with old age pensions and unemployment insurance. We finally won the latter 2 in 1935, after the general strikes of 1934 in San Francisco, Minneapolis and Toledo. The only acceptable health care plans are single payer healthcare also known as Medicare for all or the same socialized medicine all paid for with our tax dollars as the US Congress and the president have.
