Roofers union calls for Obamacare
Only 22,000 members, but its based in DC, so this has to sting a bit. Couple this with Max Baucus, one of the bills authors, warning of a "huge train wreck coming down", and it makes you wonder if the President will call for a rewrite as well.But regrettably, our concerns over certain provisions in the ACA have not been addressed, or in some instances, totally ignored. In the rush to achieve its passage, many of the Act’s provisions were not fully conceived, resulting in unintended consequences that are inconsistent with the promise that those who were satisfied with their employer sponsored coverage could keep it.
These provisions jeopardize our multi-employer health plans, have the potential to cause a loss of work for our members, create an unfair bidding advantage for those contractors who do not provide health coverage to their workers, and in the worst case, may cause our members and their families to lose the benefits they currently enjoy as participants in multi-employer health plans.
