Unions Want Taxpayer Bailout From Obamacare
 
Labor unions, who were very active in pushing Obamacare, are now upset that the law is set to cost them big. So, of course, they want the taxpayers to bail them out:

Labor unions enthusiastically backed the Obama administration’s health-care overhaul when it was up for debate. Now that the law is rolling out, some are turning sour.

Union leaders say many of the law’s requirements will drive up the costs for their health-care plans and make unionized workers less competitive. Among other things, the law eliminates the caps on medical benefits and prescription drugs used as cost-containment measures in many health-care plans. It also allows children to stay on their parents’ plans until they turn 26.

To offset that, the nation’s largest labor groups want their lower-paid members to be able to get federal insurance subsidies while remaining on their plans. In the law, these subsidies were designed only for low-income workers without employer coverage as a way to help them buy private insurance.

This would be humorous if not for the fact that this law will result in big health insurance/health care cost increases for all Americans.

Exacerbating what was already a bad situation is no laughing matter.

Except that Obama is pretty committed to labor. He'll probably try to find a way to help them out in pursuit of his two Americas strategy to divide us.

Well of course. It will get slipped into some bill.

It won't be the first time, considering that labor unions are exempt from the 40% excise tax on "Cadillac" insurance plans.

Wait, so there is a negative side to socialism?



Too bad it takes us all down with them.

When the 11 million illegals are added to Obamacare it will surely drive the price of premiums down

Looks like America is heading towards the "medical cliff" under Obamacare.

Yeah, and he doesn't have to worry about winning another election, if there is one.

I am guessing Direckshun has not yet received the talking points on any of this?

I'd say you can't make this stuff up, but when it comes to expecting someone else to pay for your ass nobody beats unions.
