Get the popcorn

Remember when we had to "pass the bill to find out what's in it"? I do. That was the moment that let me know we truly were a banana republic. There wasn't even a pretense of responsibility. I did admire the Senator for both the audacity and the honesty.

Now, it seems that we're finally reading all eleventy billion pages of Obamacare and lo and behold, the Unions don't like it one bit.

In campaign after campaign we have put boots on the ground, gone door-to-door to get out the vote, run phone banks and raised money to secure this vision.

Now this vision has come back to haunt us.


First, the law creates an incentive for employers to keep employees’ work hours below 30 hours a week. Numerous employers have begun to cut workers’ hours to avoid this obligation, and many of them are doing so openly. The impact is two-fold: fewer hours means less pay while also losing our current health benefits.

Second, millions of Americans are covered by non-profit health insurance plans like the ones in which most of our members participate. These non-profit plans are governed jointly by unions and companies under the Taft-Hartley Act. Our health plans have been built over decades by working men and women. Under the ACA as interpreted by the Administration, our employees will treated differently and not be eligible for subsidies afforded other citizens. As such, many employees will be relegated to second-class status and shut out of the help the law offers to for-profit insurance plans.

And finally, even though non-profit plans like ours won’t receive the same subsidies as for-profit plans, they’ll be taxed to pay for those subsidies. Taken together, these restrictions will make non-profit plans like ours unsustainable, and will undermine the health-care market of viable alternatives to the big health insurance companies.

There is none so blind as he who will not see. They thought Obama was their guy. He's a Chicago pol. He was going to make Unions strong again. Bring Big Business to heel. Nope. He just needed their votes. Once he had that, they become dead weight.

This is gonna be great.
