On Friday, June 29th, Local 1991 joined other organizations for a press conference to respond to the landmark US Supreme Court ruling that upheld the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the sweeping national health reform legislation that has improved the lives of millions, including our patients at Jackson Health System. The press conference took place outside the Wilkie D. Ferguson, Jr. United States Courthouse in downtown Miami.
Speaking to the press, President Martha Baker, RN, said it was an exciting moment for the community as our country takes the first steps toward healthcare reform. Such healthcare models are already in place and thriving in countries like Switzerland and the Netherlands.
As the worlds richest country, its about time that America provides quality healthcare to its citizens, Baker said. Finally, we will be focusing on prevention and quality healthcare, which is not only the best way to take care of human beings, but also the cheapest.
Other speakers at the event include:
Omayra Hernandez,RN, Local 1991 member Vivienne Dixon-Shim, President of AFSCME Local 1363 Steven Marcus, President and CEO of Health Foundation of South Florida Veille Sevigne, SEIU Local 1199 member Angelica Gurster, local small business owner Gesine Margenburg, local small business owner Jersey Garcia, Executive Director of Mi Lola
Over Half of All Obamacare Waivers Given to Union Members
SEIU Gets Three More Obamacare Waivers; Union’s PAC Spent $27 Million Backing Obama’s Election
is this one of the unions that got a waiver?
All the unions that got waivers and yet show up as obamacare cheerleaders need to be confronted publicly at these press conferences
I sincerely hope to see some if not many states making any implementation of Obamacare illegal.
Why would they celebrate a law from which they are exempt?
Meanwhile, the rest of us are enslaved by it.
“Why would they celebrate a law from which they are exempt?..”
Can’t be exempted from a “tax”; this administration just got access to a whole load of more money to spread.
Why? Because they are idiots.
SEIU is made up of employees too stupid to get an affirmative action job.
Rent-a cops, security guards,AKA cop wannabees, jhanitors and floor sweepers. Peolple too stupid to know which way is up, led by other people who are taking advantage of their ignorance.
> Cant be exempted from a tax
OK, so if this is a “tax”, as Roberts ruled, does that mean that the Unions, the religious groups (including moslems), the government workers, the US Congress, that NONE of them are exempt anymore?
I figure that 0bama0 would enroll his girls in 0bamacare about the same time that he enrolls them in a public school.
And same for the Congress, as well.
Corrupt leftist thugs.
“Why would they celebrate a law from which they are exempt?”
Taking over 16% or the economy just might guarantee union jobs don’t you think?
What the Hell kind of a “law” is it that allows the Administration to grant waivers to its buddies? This will be the next Supreme Court case, the denial of equal protection. I’d like to see Sibelius justify all her waivers.
Obama is corrupt.
All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others
They shouldn’t celebrate. I don’t think waivers can be granted for taxes.
