Sen. Thune: Obama Gives Unions Obamacare Exemption

Big Government reports:
Sen. John Thune (R-SD), the chairman of the Senate GOP conference, has discovered that President Barack Obama’s administration has decided to grant an exemption to labor unions from Obamacare’s reinsurance tax.

On page 70 of regulations the administration published on Monday, Thune’s office noted that a rule would exempt Taft-Hartley union healthcare plans from from the Obamacare reinsurance tax. Thune’s office noted in the release, provided to Breitbart News, that the exemption would most likely end up forcing others who still need to pay the tax to pay more. That includes companies, charities, and faith-based organizations.

“By publishing this proposed rule, the Obama administration moves closer to ensuring that its political allies will receive special treatment under the law,” Thune said upon the discovery.
The Obama regime makes its own law.
