Corporations Pass Benefit Costs Onto Employees While Boosting CEO Benefits

I recently saw two headlines, one in The Orlando Sentinel and one in USA Today, discussing rising health care costs.  The article from the Orlando newspaper discussed how companies planned on passing on rising health care costs to the employees while the USA Today article talked about CEOs retaining benefits while many "rank-and-file employees'" benefits are being cut.

I thought this was interesting because of the insistence of conservative pundits that without health care reform corporations would pass on their gains to their employees, but here we have the opposite happening and it is before health care reform has even taken effect - it appears CEOs are trying to get their share of the pie first and then some.
