In a “good enough for thee but not for me” display of pure hutzpah, the AFL-CIO is demanding ever increasing exemptions from Obamacare, a law it championed and helped pass.
Kaiser Health News reported on Nov. 6 that the Obama administration may finally be granting one of the demands of its union benefactors. According to Kaiser, “buried in rules issued last week is the disclosure that the administration will propose exempting ‘certain self-insured, self-administered plans’ from the law’s temporary reinsurance fee in 2015 and 2016.”
What are these “self-insured, self-administered plans”? Many are union healthcare plans, of course.
