The President just finished a rousing speech to the AFL-CIO today and was given a standing ovation for his address on government run health care with a public option. There was no bi-partisan talk here, just plain and simple Obamaspeak to a friendly audience. He is speaking to an important core constituency here and must produce for them. Organized Labor is highly in favor of a government takeover of the health care system and wants the public option in the bill. It's one of the main reasons they helped put Obama in office.
You would too if you had thousands of retired employees receiving health benefits that were bankrupting your operations. Never mind that you have mismanaged it for years or as some suggest, stolen from it. The Unions are looking out for the health of the unions and that is all. Thats why they spent untold dollars on organizing counter protests at the town hall meetings this summer.
If the legislation passes the way they want it to go, the unions will receive a massive 10 billion dollar bailout to ensure their employee benefits stay intact. Eventually that burden will shift to the government, which relates back to you, the non-union hard working American. More Obama backed socialist policies forced upon the public for the greater good of society....
One of the best articles on this subject can be found at the Heritage Foundation.......
....once again contact you're representatives in Congress. Tell them no taxpayer funded union bailouts on health care reform.
