The New York Post's Betrayal

In an editorial on Sunday titled "Bruno's Betrayal," the New York Post lines up agaist the the WFP's Fair Share for Health Care initiative.

I wouldn't expect the Post to be swayed by the WFP's first argument for Fair Share: that it's simply wrong for an employee of hugely profitable, multi-billion dollar companies to be forced to go without medical care.

But one might think the state's most conservative tabloid would have some concern for the burden that some freeloading, low-road big businesses place on taxpayers. The Post's editorial page is one of the loudest and usually most consistent anti-tax voices in the state.

Faced with a conflict that must create some internal dissonance, the tab sides with the Wal-Marts of the world over the taxpayers of New York.

Call it the Post's Betrayal.
