Unions break ranks on ObamaCare | TheHillLabor unions are breaking with President Obama on ObamaCare.
Months after the president’s reelection, a variety of unions are publicly balking at how the administration plans to implement the landmark law. They warn that unless there are changes the results could be catastrophic.
The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) — a 1.3 million-member labor group that twice endorsed Obama for president — is very worried about how the reform law will affect its members’ healthcare plans.
Last month, the president of the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers released a statement calling “for repeal or complete reform of the Affordable Care Act.”
UNITE HERE, a prominent hotel workers’ union, and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters are also pushing for changes.
In a new op-ed published in The Hill, UFCW President Joe Hansen homed in on the president’s speech at the 2009 AFL-CIO convention. Obama at the time said union members could keep their insurance under the law, but Hansen writes “that the president’s statement to labor in 2009 is simply not true for millions of workers.”
it's the taft-hartley's, the multi employers plans, 20 million members---they're all gonna lose their tax subsidy, they're all gonna be "forced to change insurers for more expensive and perhaps worse coverage under the state exchanges..."
the new ghetto of health care
what promise was more prolifically pledged than, "if you like your plan you can keep it"
he's such a LIAR
ask the teamsters, ask the hoteliers, ask the restaurants and casinos, ask the 1.3 million members of the ufcw
