Unions and Free Market Activists Find Common Cause on Health Care, For Now

President Obama has stepped up his rhetoric against the health care system, but fiscal deficiencies in his plan for a government take over have become increasingly apparent in recent weeks. Now, some on Capitol Hill are toying with the idea of taxing employee health benefits to subsidize the cost of government-provided care. But, as Americans learned during the collapse of GM, many union labor agreements provide extremely generous benefit packages to workers who are unlikely to support any proposal that might put their compensation at risk.

The First Rule of Budget Holes: Stop Digging

In a familiar storyline, Pennsylvania lawmakers are seeking to close a budget gap of some $3.2 billion by—you guessed it—raising taxes. To that end, Governor Ed Rendell has called for a “modest” hike of 16 percent in the state income tax rate from 3.07 to 3.57 percent for the next three years. Similar “temporary” tax hikes, implemented in 1983 and 1991, have yet to be fully repealed.

California - Our Canary in a Coal Mine

It's common knowledge that California is going broke.  So broke they're asking for TARP money, a program whose beneficiaries can't get out of fast enough.  It was bad enough when they took  my money to give to banks and companies that made bad decisions - but naysayers were explained away with words about "systemic risk" and "too big to fail."  With a GDP among the top ten in the world (were it an independent country), it's hard to see how we won't see those same platitudes trotted out again.

As most are aware, the dreaded Employee Free Anti-Choice Act or Card Check was introduced in the House and Senate today.  The timing has been uncertain for a while, but everyone knew it was coming.  Luckily, FreedomWorks is prepared.

Employee No Choice Act: Update

Jan 2nd the WSJ had an interesting piece suggesting that a Dem majority might keep card check at bay.  While that might seem like an oxymoron of sorts, the op-ed did raise some thought-provoking points and suggested that the specter of card check actually passing might keep some former supporters at bay.

Public Schools Next at the Bailout Trough

Since I wrote about the Metro asking for a bailout and noted that there were at least some flagging industries that still hadn't asked for a bailout, to no surprise to anyone, that has changed.  Newspapers have indeed started asking for their handout because without newspapers, according to people who have never heard of the internet, citizens would have no idea what was going on.  Michelle Malkin has been watching the ridiculousness unfold over on her blog.

A Very Merry Belated Labor Day

In keeping with Labor Day traditions the nation over, yesterday many got a day off to reflect on all the wonderous things labor unions have done for America - most notably, getting us a day off at the end of the summer - but also prevailing wage, increased costs, and lower productivity.
