Unequal treatment under Obama and Democrats in congress

What ever happened to equal treatment under the law?
Now we see that unions don't have to pay the health insurance tax for 7 years, but the rest of us pay right away!

LATimes: Reporting from Washington - The White House and labor leaders agreed Thursday on a formula to tax high-cost insurance plans, removing one of the last obstacles to President Obama's healthcare overhaul, officials said.

Under the agreement, reached after an intense round of negotiations this week, union leaders dropped their opposition to the so-called Cadillac tax in exchange for concessions to limit its scope. Organized labor had bitterly opposed the healthcare tax, arguing that union members had negotiated generous benefits in lieu of pay increases.

The compromise would postpone the tax's application to healthcare plans negotiated under union contracts until 2017.?ui=2&view=att&th=126325d318faf3a2&attid=0.1&disp=attd&realattid=ii_126325d318faf3a2&zw
