Finding out what’s in it: A major union charges in a new report that Obamacare will reduce wages, cut hours, and limit access to health insurance for the lower middle class.

Union head Donald “D.” Taylor, in a note also being sent to Congress, demands changes and admits to being reluctant to bash a president his union supported. “Believe me; I enter this entire debate about the consequences of the ACA with a deep reluctance,” he wrote. “Unite Here was the first union to endorse then-Senator Obama. We support the addition of health care to millions of Americans. Yet facts are facts, and Obamacare will cost our members the equivalent of a significant pay cut to keep their hard-won benefits.”

In other words, he is a blind partisan fool. His partisanship is so strong that even now he is reluctant to attack the President or the Democrats for creating and forcing Obamacare on us. He also is so partisan that when they were writing the bill he accepted blindly what they were telling him and thus didn’t bother to read the law himself. Then again, he really didn’t have to read it, all he really had to do was listen to just a handful of conservative thinkers who were saying then that Obamacare would “reduce wages, cut hours, and limit access to health insurance.”

The most shameful part of this whole thing is that come the next election, this union chief and his union will almost certainly still back the Democrats blindly.




    Union members have the most to lose with Obamacare. They generally have excellent coverage already.
    Obamacare is a good deal for older people who are self employed and have pre-existing health problems. This group could have been assisted with much less destructive legislation.

    I just sent this message to a friend who see’s Rand Paul as the answer to our problems, watch this Cruz interview and he states plainly what must happen with “Obamacare”, and I agree with him. Cruz has that well formed and non hesitating characteristic that true leaders have, he has a foundation philosophy and makes no apologies for it but asks you to consider it, understand it and follow his lead. Everything that Obama is not, McCain and all of the Republican old guard leadership for that matter too:

    This is the man and the philosophy that I am on board with. (watch his short interview)


    I do not think either of them can win the presidency at this point but I think if the American people and the Republican party specifically must choose between the two they must choose Cruz. Rand Paul is too connected with and obligated to the Libertarian end of the spectrum and there in lies his problem. Libertarianism is a base for a general philosophy but does not reconcile with governance and the realities of the real world.

    The person that I believe has the credentials and who is comparable to both Paul and Cruz is Scott Walker of Wisconsin. If the party goes with the same old McCain / Romney old guard candidate we loose again and again. And that seems to be the unspoken agreement between the leadership between the leadership of the two party’s. Although I do not believe that the American people have the taste for more Liberal / Dem BS at this point.

    This is how unconnected and “naive” Mr. Obama is and what he is left with related to his political capital:


    He is left with begging private businesses to raise hourly pay on their own. Things like that do not happen as a result of a presidents suggestion they happen as a function of what the market demands and what an individual business owners best judgment dictates related to market demands, an individuals capability and what the competition is or is not doing.

    What throws the whole natural business cycle off is the insertion of governmental rules and regulations not at the ends but right in the middle of someones business plan (Obamacare). And there you will find what has frozen the American economy. What a BS, posing president we have.

    And its not that I do not like him, its his devotion to his Marxist / liberal philosophies that has me at odds with him. I do not care that he is half black, or half white, what ever your perspective is, its his belief system and his inability or more pointedly his un American interpretation of the Constitution and reality in general.

    The only thing he can be now is the First Black American president, that’s it. The American people need a strong American president of ALL of the people of America who understands and connects with the Constitution and its tenets. That does not mean you can not empower the black population where needed in your opinion, but not at the expense of all others. Where is the equity in that Mr. president?

    B. Obama, president, disappointing and polarizing to say the least. I understand you and where you come from but you have made your choices,
    how disappointing that you can only be what you are and not rise above yourself, your supporters, your critics and your racism. I wish you the best, but enough is enough.

    I think he’s just hoping Obama will curve out an exception for Union plans.

  • There’s a phrase that describes people like Mr. Taylor. It’ll come to me in a minute… oh yeah: ‘useful idiot’.
