The entire health care program (designed by Stern) has always been about one thing – UNIONS. Lifting the responsibility of medical payments by union funds will cover the loss of diminishing membership, failing revenues and over-expenditure. It will permanently transfer the burden of responsibility from union officials to the American taxpayers. It will free up union dollars to exponentially expand their power base throughout the world.
It is no coincidence that the whole health care hoopla is occurring now, instead of say 5 years from now.
