"We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress & the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution."
- Abraham Lincoln
what is being argued is that Republicans don't want unions to be treated better than everyone else when it comes to the law.
despite your argument to the contrary....not one Republican has said " let's repeal obamacare, but only for ourselves"... not one.
now, maybe you can give us an good argument as to why unions should not be treated like everyone else under Obamacare?...what affords them special treatment?

I have my doubts about that.
This Nation has had a labor/corporate war since before Charlie Chaplin. Chaplin was blacklisted for producing movies that made fun of repetitious and monotonous factory jobs. Since the early 1900s, the USA has subsidized Corporate and kicked labor in the teeth, metaphorically. Wars, for example, are big subsidies to the military/corporate industrial complex and big energy. Nuclear plants are totally subsidized because they are not economically feasible. Huge windmills are considered Renewable Energy so real renewable energy monies don't go to homeowners with local generation. Too big to fail banks are subsidized so the very wealthy stay wealthy. Where do the subsidy monies come from? John Q. Taxpayer, also known as, you and I. I suspect somehow this Obamacare legislation kicks labor in the teeth, but I honestly don't see how. I'm all for Obamacare because it's better to give anything to all the taxpayers instead of a few of the wealthy.

Of course we'll have to wait and see how it turns out, but I find it hard to believe that it will ever survive a legal challenge.
