Obama wants to strip my Health Care Benefits

MSNBC is reporting that Obama (who has thoroughly and without any hope of ever retrieving them lost the use of honorifics from yours truly) has:

left open he possibility Sunday that President Barrack Obama might pay for his health care overhaul by taxing employer-provided health insurance.

Which fundamentally means that he is actively trying to strip my health care benefits.

I work for a small technology consulting firm, we have less than 10 folks in total.  I do not see any possible way that my company could continue to provide cost-effective health care for me and my family if Obama and the brilliant brain-deads which we currently are calling Congressmen.

I call them all brain-deads because even Jon McCain, the so-called “Republican” Senator of Arizona is proposing a new tax on health benefits much like the one which Obama wants to use to strip me of my health insurance.

But I digress, the point is that my company would inevitably have to drop my health insurance (and/or fire a person or two) rather than actually pay this tax.

I’m sure that my boss will try to come up with a solution. After all, solutions are what we’re paid to devise, but it’s kind of insane to think that we’ll continue the level of benefits that we have if he’s having to pay an excessive amount of taxes on it.

But of course, the Liberals WANT that. If they can force more and more small businesses to stop being able to offer affordable health-care to their employees, then that’s just more schmucks that have to feed at the public trough.

Not I though.

My wife would not like it, but if my boss was forced to drop our insurance, I would start paying into my HSA again, and pay cash for any medical needs before I suffer at the hands of a Federal Health Care system.
