Why else would he, on the eve of his visit to stump for Coakley, decide it's time to give labor unions a break from the Cadillac tax on health plans? Because he knows that Massachusetts is all about labor and tossing this mega-bone just before the weekend will stop the bleeding of deteriorating support from unions.
I say the union top brass may have negotiated this but the rank and file will see through and still vote for Scott Brown.
This ploy of selective payouts to Big Pharma, various US Senators and now the unions is the kind of discrimination that will kill the already near death public support.
Who's running the White House, Machiavelli?
