With the non-stimulus bill just a day away from getting signed into law, I took some time to read up on changes in our businesses and daily lives that we could expect.
The 1st item and the only one I even made it to, was what changes we could expect in health care.
Here is today’s bitter pill prescribed by none other than a Congress run amuck.
According to the new CBO report, the Obama administration can make a hefty dent in their plan to pay for all their outlandish health benefits by sticking it to the self-employed. According to the government bureaucrats, they believe that “mom and pop” operations” such as ours rake in bigger bucks, therefore we shouldn’t be entitled to the same tax benefits of “big” businesses who can better afford health care because of the break they get on the cost of employee insurance. In the new CBO report, the tax deduction now allowed for health insurance would be cut in half, therefore, reaping the government over 200 billion annually.
But, it doesn’t stop there.
Also to be targeted, will be our men and women in uniform and the veterans who have fought for our freedoms. The new provisions laid out would also cut dramatically the benefits they receive while at the same time, increasing the amount they will have to pay for out of their own pockets, regardless of duty status.
