Union Leaders? Epiphany Leaves Them Scrambling: Wait, Obamacare Is Going to Drive up Our Costs? | TheBlaze.com
So the question to the libs is this: Which liberal tribe are you going to side with in this liberal on liberal conflict? Union liberals or Obamacare liberals?
HOWEVER, they can, and likely will, pressure the White House for some "special" privaledges. That is how Obamacare is goinig to end up: A system in which certain groups pay little or nothing, for better care...paid for by others, who will be relegated to lesser care.
Need a subscription to WSJ, it appears, to be able to read the article. Nonetheless, it's titled, Some Unions Grow Wary of Health Law They Backed
Fucking told you so you morons. PPACA is a tyrannical disaster of a law. It is the worst fucking thing we could have POSSIBLY done.Labor unions enthusiastically backed the Obama administrationís 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 lawís 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 parentsí plans until they turn 26.
To offset that, the nationís 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.
I'm with Obamacare.
It's not what I originally wanted, but now that we're knee deep in it, I don't want to stop until it's tested.
