    Union Bosses: 'ObamaCare Will Destroy Health of Americans

    Union Bosses Say ObamaCare Will Destroy Health of Americans | Fox News Insider

    In an open letter, James P. Hoffa, Joseph Hansen and D. Taylor wrote: “Right now, unless you and the Obama Administration enact an equitable fix, the ACA will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class.”

    It went on to state, “We can no longer stand silent in the face of elements of the Affordable Care Act that will destroy the very health and well being of our members along with millions of other hardworking Americans.”

    Now even the Unions that once supported Obamacare are decrying how bad it is.

    I wondered if they would find Hoffa's remains and Obamacare brought him back to life.

    Obamacare = immortality. Who knew? Where can I sign up?

    Obama 2016. Because it's better to live than to die.

    On a more serious note, sure took them a long time to change their minds. Maybe someone finally actually read the whole 2 thousand pages and the other million pages with actual directions.

    I'll take a guess and postulate that the "Cadillac Plans", which are now penalized, is what the big bosses don't want to lose.

    That's OK. King Barrack will simply use his magical executive powers to alter the PPACA implementation such that the good parts stay and the bad parts are ignored, removed or replaced with even better parts. You see, now that we have the mighty King Barrack, instead of a mere president, the law as written, and passed by our congress critters, need no longer be the final word. We have been "fundamentally transformed" as was promised numerous times.

    Or how. Apparently the 40 hour work week is being destroyed. Because that didn't happen already.

    Given the finite amount of jobs and the reality that there are far more workers than things to do because of technology shifts that have made workers much more productive or unneeded as they were when the 40 hour workweek was established as the norm perhaps it is not a health care act that is making it problematic for society? That system was formed in a time when we needed many workers for manufacturing. Things are just getting worse for employee demand on that front now that we are making newer technology leaps into things like 3D printing. There are some problems with the ACA, but the 40 hour workweek is not one of them.

    Processed foods, bad air quality, stress and no exercise is destroying the health of Americans. A dysfunctional health care system ain't helping, though.

    Americans serving overseas, either in the military or the diplomatic corps, should be on alert because the next wag-the-dog moment is surely not too far away. The disaster that is the Obama Presidency is imploding even faster than I thought possible and there isn't a chance this gang will sit by idly.

    If I'm not mistaken, the need for employer purchased/provided healthcare under the ACA depends on the number of full time employees a company has, full time being defined as those working a standard 40 hr work week. The unions may be coming to the realization that many companies may be looking to move their full time employees to 39 hrs, or 38, 37, etc. in order to reduce their number of "full time" employees, thus eliminating a significant cost to their bottom lines. If these unions lose their employer provided/supplemented health care, that would do significant harm to the level of health care insurance those employees have going forward.
