DENVER - Colorado Democrats remained silent as union members will get a special health care tax break while non-union working families will pay a higher tax rate in the latest secret deal cut by President Obama and Democrat congressional leaders.
"Why should union members be given a special tax exemption while Colorado's non-union working families will be paying a higher tax rate on their health care policies?" asked Colorado Republican State Chairman Dick Wadhams.  "As usual, our accidental senator Bennet and the equally impotent senator Udall have stood by and watched this special deal cut in the darkness to buy off union support of the Obama health care monstrosity."
President Obama and Democrat congressional leaders cut a deal with union bosses on Thursday that would exempt union members from increased taxes on high end health insurance plans.  Working families with the same high end health insurance plans will not get the special union tax exemption and will be forced to pay the higher taxes on their plans.
"Bribery bought the votes of Nebraska and Louisiana senators for this so called 'health care reform' bill and now the bribes continue with this blatant purchase of union boss support," Wadhams said.  "Will accidental senator Bennet and his fellow Colorado Democrats look Colorado's non-union working families in the eye and tell them why they should pay a higher tax than union members on the very same health insurance policy?"
