Union Support Finally Bought By Back Room WH Deal For Health Care

It was only time before the American public found out who Obama believes is truly more equal.

Special Deal for Labor Unions in Health Care Bill
The labor unions have been fighting the Senate health care bill for some time now--specifically, the provision that levies high taxes on "Cadillac" plans that exceed certain maximums. That was expected to be a sticking point in the negotiations between the Senate and the House, but as Samuel Johnson once said, "the prospect of being hanged focuses the mind wonderfully." With the potential loss of their 60 vote majority lurking ahead, they can't dawdle on the details; it's time to haul in their lente and festina like hell.

Take unpopular unions and match them with an unpopular president and congress and you have an Obama success. Huh?
