GOP Bill Would Block ObamaCare Subsidies for Labor Unions

Unions not happy with the way the rules work

|

Republicans are preparing to fight back if the Obama administration grants tax subsidies to union health plans under ObamaCare.

A new bill from Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) would prevent federal officials from taking this step, which is a major priority for labor unions as they assess the impact of the healthcare law.

Union members' multi-employer health plans are currently not eligible for the new tax subsidies designed to make coverage more affordable.
