Senate Democrat Baucus' Health Care Bill - Part.2 Tax you Constituents for their health

You know you Democrat bill is bad when stalwart Democrats realize that its not just the rich but their core constituencies that will be taxed to pay for it.

Dems unhappy with proposed tax in health care bill
Unhappy Senate Democrats on Thursday found plenty to complain about in the fine print of the latest health overhaul bill, particularly a tax provision they fear would hit hard at middle-class Americans, from coal miners in West Virginia to firefighters in New York.

The opposition sprang up a day after Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., unveiled long-delayed legislation that would transform the nation's health care system, requiring almost everyone to buy insurance, making insurance companies cover people with pre-existing medical conditions and reining in spiraling health care costs.
