Labor Unions Turn On ObamaCare

Labor Union Leaders apparently finally figured out that ObamaCare will screw their members, since most have Cadillac Plans with little or no premium payments, deductibles, or co-payments and that will all change under ObamaCare.   Remember, Socialist former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, from San Francisco, said they needed to enact ObamaCare, which Socialist members of Congress did not even read, to know what was in it.  It is important to note that not one Republican voted for ObamaCare and that the House of Representatives has voted 38 times to repeal it. 

So now, Labor Leaders are seeing that ObamaCare will result in higher premiums, deductibles and co-pays for their union members and they are not happy.   Employers will do away with these Cadillac Plans because otherwise they face penalties and higher taxes.  In addition, many Americans, including union members, are going to see their hours cut to less than 30 hours a week to avoid the need to provide any health insurance at all.   Labor Union Leaders are panicking because they see all the health insurance gains they have fought for in the last 50 years going away as a result of ObamaCare.   Now they have to join the real world.  What a shame for them. 

Of course, these are the same people that supported Socialist President Obama and in many ways are responsible for his election.  These are Obama's PEEP's and he screwed them.  Certainly, Republicans in Congress, that get no union support, are not likely to come to the rescue any time soon when their goal is to repeal and replace ObamaCare altogether.  Big unions are being forced into the real world along with the rest of us.   They should either support the repeal of ObamaCare, or get over it.
