The house of cards begins to fall: A union is calling for the repeal of Obamacare.

Our Union and its members have supported President Obama and his Administration for both of his terms in office.

But regrettably, our concerns over certain provisions in the ACA have not been addressed, or in some instances, totally ignored. In the rush to achieve its passage, many of the Act’s provisions were not fully conceived, resulting in unintended consequences that are inconsistent with the promise that those who were satisfied with their employer sponsored coverage could keep it.

These provisions jeopardize our multi-employer health plans, have the potential to cause a loss of work for our members, create an unfair bidding advantage for those contractors who do not provide health coverage to their workers, and in the worst case, may cause our members and their families to lose the benefits they currently enjoy as participants in multi-employer health plans.

But don’t worry, come the next election this same union will continue to support the same Democratic politicians that gave us Obamacare, because party partisanship is far more important than common sense and rational leadership.

    At some point the people must develop another choice rather then the status quo. However the political powers that be have the power to co opt it through many means.

    There’s no longer a “need” for Obama to bend to the will of unions. HIS power is secure. Thus, as in all such circumstances involving the hard left, when you’re no longer useful to the leadership expect to be jettisoned – or, as they like to call it – purged.

    One should be careful for what one wishes for! I think this legislation,(ACA) will have far greater damage than just this to the United States as a whole, I guess that we just have to see whats in it as it unfolds.

    Here is the chance for true leadership by any politician, but particularly a republican. This farse has to end now with total repeal. Will someone please stand up and demand a vote to begin the repeal process.
    Leadership…………………..anyone……..anyone…………….anyone………..Bueller…………anyone?

    Don’t you feel sorry for these mind-numbed robots who follow the Democratic Party off the cliff, then complain there was a sharp drop because of the cliff? I’ve got a better one: “Cry me an ocean”.

    Does anyone personally know someone who has gone onto the new Obama care government system?

    I know a lot of changes have been forced on private insurance but I can not find anyone who has found a way to get on the new system.

    It seems that they keep putting it off and finding ways to slow it down from starting.
    I don’t think Obama realized he might have to have been the one to implement it and live with the consequences.
    The left might have thought that they would lose the last election if they passed it and hoped that they could use the situation to make the republicans looks bad for not implementing it fats enough or not financing it or even trying to repeal it.
    By winning they found they would have to do all the hard real work and are now hoping to put it off till after the next midterms.

    We should be pushing to have it implemented as fast as possible. Bringing homeless and the poor in front of every camera we can find to explain that these are the very people that need the help that Obama care could give if the Left would only hurry up and get it started.
    They will do one of two things, either cry the need more cash or cry foul and whine that the republicans are just using those people for political gain.

    I bet there are still about 20 million people who need coverage in the US.

  • I do think you’re assessment of the situation has merit, and probably hits close to the truth.
