Surprise!! ObozoCare "Caddy Tax" on Chopping Block

Reid and Pelosi, prominent pond-scum, want to delete the "Cadillac tax" from ObozoCare.

The tax will hit most of Big Labor, not to mention Gummint employees at all levels around the country AND lots of East- and West- coast fat-cat private-sector entities.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) are working behind the scenes to repeal one of the most controversial taxes in ObamaCare, multiple sources tell The Hill.

Reid and Pelosi have been talking since the spring with President Obama about repealing the “Cadillac tax” on employer healthcare benefits, a senior Democratic aide confirmed on Friday....

There is a minor problem:

...The biggest hurdle for getting rid of the tax is figuring out how to replace the $87 billion in government revenue for the Affordable Care Act (ACA)....

...but to (D) pols, increasing the national debt is not a "problem," it's an opportunity!

It will be interesting to see how Ryan plays this.  Forcing the (D) Party to live with their decision is one option, of course.  Dismantling the rest of ObozoCare is another.  Giving in to pond-scum and their allies?

We'll see.
