Unions Begin To Splinter - Just The Beginning

The 40,000 member International Longshore and Warehouse Union has cut its ties with the AFL-CIO as a result of their support for ObamaCare and Immigration Reform.  No, it's not what you think.   The International Longshore and Warehouse Union is even more left wing, since they support Single Payer Nationalized Health Insurance and more radical Immigration Reform, that would give citizenship to illegal aliens sooner, than the bill recently enacted by the US Senate.  So what does this mean?

ObamaCare is Socialist President Obama's signature legislation.  And, the Immigration Reform Bill, enacted by the US Senate, was primarily designed by Socialists in the US Senate.  If a major Union is rejecting both of these laws, what does it say about the future of the Socialist Party in the elections of 2014 and 2016.   This particularly Union is even more radical than the President, if that is possible. 
It is true that many Unions finally read the ObamaCare 2,700 page monstrosity and realized that they got screwed by this legislation that they helped enact.   Their Cadillac Medical Plans, that they spent 50 years getting through negotiations, will be taxed by Obama in a few years.   And, employers will simply designate many jobs part time, 29 hours a week, to avoid the requirement to provide any health insurance at all.   Well dah!

Since Obama has no business experience, he simply did not understand how business would react to ObamaCare.  Obama assumed things would go on business as usual and that no one would lose their health insurance.  Obama told the American people if you like your current doctor and medical plan you can keep it.  Really?  That will not be the case if people are forced to go on to the Exchanges to buy insurance because their employers no longer offer coverage for Spouses and families, which is permissible under the law.

The Unions are going bonkers.  The question is will they support the Socialist candidates in 2014 and 2016 that did this too them.   Remember, not one Republican in Congress voted for ObamaCare.   This turkey is the sole property of the Socialist Party.   When employees lose their medical insurance, they should be referred to dizzy Socialist Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and Senator Dirty Harry Reid, the majority leader of the US Senate.  Obama, Pelosi and Reid put this monstrosity in place.  Now they need to feel the heat when the S--T hits the fan.
