"Trophy hunting is a form of wildlife use that, when well managed, may assist in furthering conservation objectives by creating the revenue and economic incentives for the management and conservation of the target species and its habitat, as well as supporting local livelihoods," the IUCN announced in a 2012 report.
That same report reveals two case studies where the establishment and proper regulation of trophy hunting grounds actually helped threatened animal populations recover. Nature writer Richard Conniff shared even more examples in a 2014 op-ed published in the New York Times, including that of Namibia, where lion populations are now increasing.
Eventually, the 40% tax will apply to modest plans (not just high-cost coverage, as originally intended), and this hurts the ability of employers to continue to offer quality and affordable employer-sponsored health-care for attraction, retention, and engagement, as part of a broader total rewards value proposition.
Employers are already re-structuring their group health plans. Many organizations are redesigning their benefits packages to delay incurring the tax, but the excise tax provisions will make it all but impossible over time for employers to offer plans that fully comply with the Affordable Care Act while avoiding the tax on employee health benefits.
“There are several Democrats who say they are pro-life,” Paul tells The Daily Signal.

And then Obama will veto it.
We need to elect a President to get this done.
