 Health Care Pay-To-Play Payoff

We recently discussed one of the motivations Big Labor has for seeing a drastic health care bill pass, which is to eventually drive health care employees into public-sector unions. Intense scrutiny of the pending legislation unveiled another bone thrown to Big Labor in the current version of the bill, to the tune of $10 billion.

Union VEBAs (voluntary employee benefit associations) are in trouble. Lance Wallach, a New York-based VEBA expert, recently said of the UAW VEBA , if the funds “don’t get something, they’re out of business in 12 years.” That something would come in the guise of a so-called reinsurance provision in the health care bill. $10 billion would be earmarked to pay some claims for early retirees covered by employers and VEBAs.
