    Republicans move to halt ObamaCare 'bailout' for angry unions

    Capitol Hill Republicans are trying to stop the Obama administration from offering labor unions a sweetheart deal on ObamaCare, as the White House tries to quell a simmering rebellion from Big Labor over the health care law.

    President Obama and White House officials reportedly have called union leaders to try and persuade them to tone down their complaints, pledging an accommodation. The AFL-CIO, though, on Wednesday approved a resolution anyway calling the law "highly disruptive" to union plans.

    But reports have surfaced on a plan that would give union workers -- and only union workers -- subsidies to help pay for health insurance even if they're covered through their job. The purported "carve-out" could soothe the simmering discontent within Big Labor. The loyal Democratic supporters and early champions of ObamaCare say they have been slighted by the act’s final regulations, which they say is pushing some employees into part-time work and threatens their health insurance plans.

    It is going to get to the point that the determining factor on who gets any Obama Care subsidies is who you voted for last election it will be required for you to be a registered democrat to get one

    I don't like Obamacare either. Who do I see about my subsidy?

    Congress has exempted itself, a number of large companies have been given exemptions, Obama is now struggling for union support. This is more of the same Chicago style cronyism that we've come to expect from this president. I don't know why we keep letting them get away with it.

    Its kinda funny. The people that lobbied for it are now going to be upset with the republicans for forcing them to have to accept the plans they lobbied for. Kinda speaks volumes about those 'plans' huh? Maybe people ought to think and actually support programs that are GOOD rather than vote in the name of politics with little to no regard for the **** sandwich you are voting for.

    The ONLY people that are going to like Obamacare are the people that previously had no insurance and will STILL not be able to afford health care premiums. And even they are going to be pissed in short order when they realize what second rate health care looks like.

    Perhaps then, Democrats and liberals will be in favor of voter ID laws.

    I supported Ron Paul through his candidacy and donated a little time. When election time came, honestly I voted for anyone but Obama which meant Romney because I recognized Paul had no chance. I hope that's the last Republican vote I cast. i am very upset with that party.

    They thought they were getting the black George Clooney when they voted for Hope and Change

    And yet...the American Sheeple don't care enough to do something about this crap the Democrats shoved down our throats.

    They do, however, care about the latest reality show on TV. sigh...
