Johanns: Union Deal Unfair and Unjustifiable

WASHINGTON

 

Senator Mike Johanns today criticized the latest back-room deal to emerge from the health care negotiations between Democrats in the Senate and House of Representatives. A deal has reportedly been reached to exempt union employees from a proposed 'Cadillac tax'-a 40 percent tax on high-cost insurance plans put in place to help pay for the $2.5 trillion bill.
