Silence! Dems Trying to Bully Employers on ObamaCare’s Job-Killing Impact

Ohio’s 8th Congressional District Blog

Posted by Press Office on March 30, 2010

Washington Democrats want the nation’s employers to think twice about alerting their workers, customers, shareholders, and the public at large to the financial impact of President Obama’s new health care law, whether it’s AT&T ($1 billion), Deere & Co. ($150 million), Caterpillar ($100 million), 3M ($90 million), AK Steel ($31 milllion), and Valero Energy (up to $20 million.)

The White House blog has been used to question the credibility of these statements. A Cabinet secretary called these public disclosures “irresponsible.” House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman (D-CA) wants to hold hearings and issue subpoenas. These scare tactics are not surprising. Last fall, the Obama Administration issued a gag order designed to keep seniors in the dark about ObamaCare’s massive Medicare cuts.

America’s workers have a right to know how this new law will affect them. As do the millions of retirees who may lose their drug benefits.

Liberal columnist Frank Rich argues that the Tea Party’s anger stems from “losing their country” to minorities — and has little to do with health care reform. Is he right?

The furious conservative backlash against health care reform has little to do with health care, says New York Times columnist Frank Rich. The “unglued firestorm of homicidal rhetoric” — and worse — is a reaction by the “virtually all white” Tea Party to an ever-less-white America. The grassroots activists would have been angry at any major law our “black president and a female speaker of the House” enacted, Rich argues. Is he right — or is he misplaying the race card?
